Forest operations for the future
At this conference we will address the future research and innovation needs within forest operations.
The Nordic – Baltic forestry sector represents a historical trade pattern that has been in existence for hundreds of years. The demand for wood products is expected to further increase in coming decades.
How can the forest operations sector and industry address the long-term needs of the future wood market including traceability of sustainability certified wood, the possibility of demand shocks, cost pressures and an unpredictable and extreme climate affecting forest operations?
The organizing committee is looking forward to welcoming you to Helsinore.
