This integrated project combined forest sampling, monitoring and stand experimentation, laboratory analysis and timber characterisation studies. The results helped to develop a state-of-the-art model to simulate the impact of forest management strategies and climate change on stand productivity, timber quality, marketability and carbon sequestration. Simulations informed a European-wide analysis of sector performance and suitable management practices under difference climate futures.
Forest Research co-ordinated this large-scale, ambitious project involving scientists from Belgium, Finland, Germany and Italy. The team played a pivotal role in developing harmonised sampling and data collection guidelines and protocols as well as contributing data from 10 sites across the UK. Forest Research developed several dynamic models including a coupled soil-forest-atmosphere model for predicting evapo-transpiration (ForestETp) demands.
