Forestry events in Paris and Brussels in the coming weeks

March will be a good month for forests: before the celebration of the International Day of Forests in Geneva on March 21sth, Paris will host the Colloquium on forest plantation: Recent advances in R&D on March 19th.

This colloquium is open to researchers, practitioners, decision makers, associations and students. It aims to present and discuss the results of recent R & D work on the theme of forest plantation. This work aims to innovate planting practices, to improve the multiple performances (technical, economic, environmental, social) of the plantation.
