ROSEWOOD South Europe Hub for Sustainable Wood Mobilisation

Wood Mobilisation in the Hub Region
The ROSEWOOD Southern Europe Hub covers Spain, France and Italy. Despite a strong potential in terms of wood volume, the region faces many challenges concerning the mobilization of wood due to very fragmented forest property and the threat of serious forest fires, pests and forest diseases.
Challenges to wood mobilisation furthermore lie in the development of tools for the establishment of joint management models and the conception of more efficient utilization systems for low-value products, allowing their profitable use.

Hub Focus Topics
The Hub's aim is to find tailored strategies and solutions that help increase the wood mobilisation rate in the region, taking into account also non-forest sources of wood like urban greenery and non-wood products of forests such as cork and chestnut. A main focus will be on sustainable wood resource management and the question how to serve both, the demands of the industry and the protection of the region’s sensitive biodiversity, especially regarding the effects of climate change.
