Description of project

The project will contribute to forest stands’ stability support in main forest management types. The project aims to prepare a base for minimizing potential risks resulting from harmful abiotic agents such as wind and snow in changing climatic conditions thus supporting a safe wood production service of forests. The results are to be applied as a conception level supporting a state forestry policy by means of Regional Plans of Forest Development (Czech acronym OPRL), and a detailed one concerning particular forestry enterprises. A basis provided by the research can be implemented into realization of the government-approved National Action Plan (NAP) of an adaptation to climate change and the key actions of the National Forestry Program (Czech acronym NLP).
