Demonstration in field and seminar – Young dense thinnings
Ten years of research and development on methods and techniques for biomass harvesting in young dense stands has been successful. We arranged a combined field demonstration and seminar in Umeå where we showed knowledge and experiences from this fruitful work. Organising partners were Cluster of Forest Technology, SLU and BioFuel Region and the projects; INFRES, Forest Refine.
