Coppice Brno 2015

The Conference "Coppice forests: past, present and future" was held in Brno, CZ from April 9th to 11th and over 130 participants attended.

The EuroCoppice Action cooperated with the Conference by placing our WG 2 & 4 meeting directly prior to the Conference, allowing members to attend both easily. Many of the EuroCoppice members held presentations at the Coppice Conference.

                                 ** We were especially pleased to see young researcher who had taken part                                      

  in STSMs and our Training School in Sarajevo presenting at the Conference! **
