ROSEWOOD Central Europe Hub for Sustainable Wood Mobilisation

Wood Mobilisation in the Hub Region
Central Europe, especially Germany, Austria and Switzerland, is a densely wooded area. Forests cover a third of the German and Swiss national territory and almost 50% of Austria. Despite a highly professionalized wood sector, the region carries a lot of hidden potential concerning the mobilisation of wood resources. In light of an increasing demand for wood in construction and energy, a sustainable utilization of dormant reserves, e.g. from privately owned forests, is needed.  

Hub Focus Topics
In correspondence to the needs of the region, special emphasis will be on engaging a wide range of stakeholders, from forest owners to architects and energy providers, in the dialogue on wood mobilisation. A goal of the hub activities in the framework of ROSEWOOD is to find innovative solutions for unlocking the wood resources of privately owned forests. Questions addressed in this realm will be e.g. how to equip forest owners with necessary instruments and know-how for harvesting more wood.
