Comprehensive volume  "Coppice Forests in Europe" published in 2018 – available online

Authored by 115 experts, researchers and practitioners from 35 countries across Europe and beyond, this volume primarily focuses on traditional types of coppice, but also addresses more recent forms such as short rotation coppice. Besides extensive coverage of the themes silviculture, utilisation, conservation and governance, the volume provides information on each of the 35 countries and discusses management and policy options for the different situations in which coppice is currently found.

The publication  "Coppice Forests in Europe" is based upon work from COST Action FP1301 EuroCoppice, supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology). Additional support to the Action was provided by the Eva Mayr-Stihl Stiftung.
