IUFRO Anniversary Congress Spotlight #52 - Building on tradition to plan for the future of forests

This IUFRO Anniversary Congress session is all about forestry operations and research and how change can be evolutionary rather than revolutionary.

The session entitled Forestry "Classic" for the Future will discuss contemporary and future-oriented research on the use of "classic" forest management practices aimed at developing new, modern aspects of traditional production forestry. 

Session coordinator Dr. Jens Peter Skovsgaard of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Alnarp, Sweden, and session moderator Dr. Woodam Chung, Department of Forest Engineering, Management and Resources at Oregon State University, USA, both believe classic practices must continue to change.

There is a need to re-examine the traditional role and practice of forestry from the perspectives of modern engineering technology and current environmental and social demands on forests and forest products.
