LIFE Forest Fit for Future

Monitoring silvicultural and socio-economic impact

A goal of the project is to deliver data on several parameters in order to reduce the barriers to the introduction of close to nature forestry. In this action a grid of plots I 200 selected stands will be installed for monitoring the quantitative effects of conversion to CNF. Grid density will be adjusted to accommodate sufficient precision of estimates to allow systematic statistical analysis of key variables such as e.g. species composition, forest structure, regeneration success, damage by game browsing, dead wood, microhabitats.

Socio economic impacts will be assessed primarily by recreational value.
