Adaptive Forest Resource management for Sustainable wood and timber Economy in the Brandenburg-Berlin Region

In the ADAPT-Wald-Holz project, a group of young researchers is developing an adaptive forest-wood management system for the Brandenburg-Berlin region, using the example of the Scots pine. The focus is on an ecosystem and resource-friendly regional value chain – from forest management to wood supply and processing.

As an additional part of the project, a forest life (reality) laboratory will be set up for the development and simulation of novel forest management approaches. Existing timber harvesting and logistics concepts shall be improved technologically and will be improved and integrated further with regard to new possibilities for digital data transfer and networking in the forest and timber sector. Finally, new approaches for the use of pine wood are developed to increase the regional added value of this raw material, especially in the wood construction and building sector. In order to transfer the approaches tested in the forest life laboratory and in the further wood supply and utilisation chain into practice, an InnoForum will be established with regional actors practitioner from the sector.

IT4Forest enthusiasts Prof. Jan-Peter Mund and Ramazan Bülbül will contribute by implementing work package 2: Digital forest stand inventories and 3D models. For more information on the project please click here.

The project ADAPT-Wald Holz – is led by HNEE (Prof. Cremer) and project partners are

Thünen Institut for Forest Ecosystems Eberswalde, Max Plank Instut für Kolloid- und Grenzflächenforschung, Landesbetrieb Forst Brandenburg.

Das Projekt ist in der BMBF-Fördermaßnahme „Regionale Innovationsgruppen für eine klimaschützende Wald- und Holzwirtschaft (REGULUS)“ eingebettet.
