Objectives of the infrastructure
Provide long-term information of forest management experimental sites established by CRA.
Description of the infrastructure
The forest management monitoring database aims - through experimental method – to assess the long-term dynamics of forest systems, the comparison of differentiated or alternative theses, allowed to test their suitability and evaluate their effectiveness in terms of bio-ecology, economics, societal expectations, rural development. Monitoring these trials resulted in the updated knowledge of systems’ dynamics, in being able to address forest policy, decision-making and to provide yet the reference for a silvicultural practice consistent to different forest types and contexts.
Services currently offered by the infrastructure
