Vision Target 2

Efficient sustainable harvesting

In many regions specific forest growth is increasing and management is optimised for additional harvesting possibilities. In other regions, especially in the Mediterranean area, where the impact of climate change is predicted to be severe, creating resilient, stress-tolerant forest is particularly important. In some landscapes the main aim is nature conservation and providing ecosystem services. Bearing in mind the full range of demand and production constraints, harvesting possibilities in Europe have increased by 30%, enabling forest owners to manage their forests more efficiently and sustainably.
