The 9th IUFRO International Conference on Uneven-aged Silviculture
Future Concepts in Uneven-aged Silviculture for a Changing World
Birmensdorf (Zürich), Switzerland 17 - 19 June 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 will be discussed in this conference.
