After a long period of neglect, coppice forests have been back into the spotlight by the members of COST Action FP1301 EuroCoppice.
Now you can find the volume “Coppice Forests in Europe”, which is authored by 115 coppice experts, researchers and practitioners from 35 countries. It Is the most comprehensive volume on coppice forests in Europe to date and should be of interest to any academic or professional concerned with forestry and the environment.
The volume gives an overview of coppice forests and their management, then covers the themes of silviculture, utilization, conservation and governance. It includes detailed reports on all 35 countries ad subsequently provides an outlook on possible policy and management options. EuroCoppice activities and further networks can be found in the annex.
