Scientific Summary 124 in IUFRO News Vol. 43, Issue 9, mid-September 2014
Interest and application in the subject of management of forests using uneven-aged silviculture is gaining importance worldwide. It is now recognized that this approach to management is possible with many species, on a wide range of sites wherever forests exist.
The origin of uneven-aged silviculture was what we now regard as the classical examples from central Europe. This type of silviculture has evolved and developed throughout the world and there is now a dazzling array of different methods of application all of which stay true to the basic principle of sustainability.
In a politically, economically and climatically changing world, uneven-aged silviculture is now confronted with new challenges and questions. These were addressed at the 9th IUFRO International Conference on Uneven-aged Silviculture on 17-19 June, 2014, at the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow, and Landscape Research WSL in Birmensdorf, Switzerland.
