A first attempt to focus on coppice forests internationally is the COST Action FP 1301 EuroCoppice (2013 – 2017). It incorporates 35 countries (European, neighbouring and international) with over 140 scientists/experts.
The XXIV IUFRO World Congress (5-11 Oct. 2014 in Salt Lake City, USA) included a well-attended technical session (TS 113) on traditional coppice forestry, organised by EuroCoppice members.
The main “Kick-Off” for the Working Party would take place at/around the IUFRO 125th Anniversary Congress 2017 in Freiburg, Germany (19-22. Sept, 2017). Further smaller meetings could take place before then, also in the context of COST Action FP1301 EuroCoppice.
