FORESTS´ FUTURE: Consequences of Bark Beetle Calamity for the Future of Forestry in Central Europe
Scientific Workshop, Jihlava, Czech Republic, March 31st – April 2nd 2020

Central European forests face an unprecedented bark beetle infestation, which may change the future of our forests and forestry as well as that of the whole forest-based sector. While the public is highly worried being confronted with the expanding area of declining forests and clear-cuts, forest owners, foresters and state administration are overwhelmed by activities focused on tackling the current situation in the fields of forest protection, economy as well as timely and feasible reforestation. The situation is developing quickly, and vital decisions are taken in short time. The workshop FORESTS´ FUTURE organized by a consortium of Forest Research Institutes is intended to share ideas not only about the current bark beetle situation, but even more importantly about related environmental risks and subsequent management of deforested areas.
