LIFE Project


"Shaping future forestry for sustainable coppices in southern Europe: the legacy of past management trials" 

LIFE14 ENV/IT/000514


The project takes place from 2015 - 2018 and is coordinated by CREA – Forestry Research Centre (IT)

FutureForCoppiceS aims at improving the knowledge basis for the development of future, sustainable forest management (SFM) of coppice forests in southern Europe. It will demonstrate, by real datasets collected from a long-term experimental plots network, how different management approaches have actually favoured or constrained the overall and the different aspects of sustainability of coppice forests.
 Given the concurrent, substantial changes of the forest growth environment (e.g. increased concentration of greenhouse gases, rising temperature, reduced precipitation and increased seasonal variability) occurring since the last decades, the results will improve the knowledge basis for SFM in the in view of the forecasted changes in key environmental drivers and pressures.
