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.
