This volume provides a detailed account of the increase in forest resources in Europe over the past forty years. The author discusses the implications of this expansion for the future health and vitality of the forests and for the economic viability and environmental sustainability of the resource. He advocates an increase in thinnings and regeneration cuttings, replacing currently unstable tree species with true climatic climax species, and shortening rotation ages. The author concludes that preserving the sustainability and biodiversity of Europe's forest ecosystems can be achieved by maintaining the genetic diversity, density, age and health stability of forests, protecting biotopes of endangered species, and establishing cultural biotopes and strictly protected natural reserves.

Book Description:

Contrary to popular belief, Europe's forests have been expanding over the past century. This volume describes the situation since 1950 and examines the negative implications for the health of the forests should this expansion be allowed to continue. The author concludes that active forestry measures need to be taken to ensure the sustainability and biodiversity of this resource, including its regular rejuvination, the protection of genetic resources and endangered species, and the establishment of more natural reserves.

From the Back Cover:

This volume provides a detailed country-by-country account of the increase in forest resources in Europe over the past forty years. This expansion, in standing volume and to a lesser extent in area, is a continuation of a trend that began during the nineteenth century. After presenting the historical developments, the author discusses the implications, should this trend be allowed to continue, for the future health and vitality of the forests, for forest policy management and silviculture, and for the economic viability and environmental sustainability of the resource. An increase in thinnings and regeneration cuttings is advocated, replacing current unstable tree species by true climatic climax species, as is a shortening of the currently over-long rotation ages. The author concludes that preserving the sustainability and biodiversity of Europe's forest ecosystems can be achieved by maintaining the genetic diversity, density, age and health stability of forests, protecting biotopes of endangered species and establishing cultural biotopes and strictly protected natural reserves.
