Sustainable Use of Natural Resources
WSL has from the very start been concerned with the sustainable use of the natural resources wood, water, snow, landscape and soil - resources that provide manifold services. Computer simulations of forest development help foresters make the best economic use of Swiss forests, and, at the same time, take into account other functions that forests perform for people, animals and plants.
