Forest technology, economics and timber

Forests deliver wood which is a renewable raw material and fuel. Thousands of people have jobs in factories processing wood from domestic forests.

How much timber is growing in our forests? Which branch of industry consumes which amount of wood? Here you find the broad range of topics our department refers to.

Our topics

New kinds of biomass usage

Wood chips as a natural fuel can be efficiently and sustainably produced in short rotation coppice and in agroforestry systems. For this purpose fast growing tree species which are capable of stump shooting are planted on farmland.
 

After logging the wood has to be transported from the forest to the saw mill or plant. Timber logistics deals with the wood supply chain, the transport and information exchange.
