Description of project

The project’s objective is to assess dataset from long-term experiments involving pioneer tree species stands (PPD), silvicultural treatment’s effect on their production (value) potential and fulfilment of ecosystem services, including economic efficacy of PPDs utilization for energetic purposes. The project will also evaluate qualitative and quantitative production for various pioneer tree species (mainly birch, aspen, alder), their influence on soil environment and microclimatic conditions adjustment to introduce tree species with “climax growth strategy”.
