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 Membership
By becoming a member of the ROSEWOOD South Europe Hub you will get exclusive access to the events and trainings offered by the Hub.
As active member you have furthermore the opportunity to share your views on wood mobilisation with the forest community.

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.

Hub Roadmap for a Targeted Transfer of Best Practices and Innovations
ROSEWOOD elaborated for each of the four Hubs roadmaps, scrutinizing each region's existing capacities for wood mobilisation, recommending future actions and highlighting particular Best Practices and Innovations from across Europe whose transfer could improve the regional situation.

Executive Summary South Europe Roadmap - Introducing incentives against land abandonment
Forestry in the South Europe Hub comes with unique conditions and challenges due to its climate. With global warming at the forefront fires, pests and diseases occur more often and pose a serious threat to wood mobilisation in the South. In addition, low prices for wood significantly reduce the profitability of harvesting in the region. For another prominent problem is the increasing abandonment of rural areas, which not only leads to idle, unutilized forest stands, but also puts other tended plots of land at risk with the expansion of coppice, a natural accelerant in case of wildfires. Potential alleviation could offer introduction of taxation on the abandonment of land or abolishing fiscal remiges that penalize companies offering management services to forest owners. On the contrary, more and better skilled professional agents are needed to serve forest owners living far from their forest estate.

Increasing prices for wood will be a more tedious process, but on the long-term only prove successful, if the overall competitiveness of the sector is strengthened. One option could be to reinforce intersectoral communication and cooperation to explore new value propositions and increase the value added through forest supply chains. The French initiative FuturBois is an interesting reference project in this regard. Main objective of the initiative is to unite professionals in the forest-wood-paper sector and to inform local authorities and the general public about the benefits of wood products. Its cross-sectoral structure provides for a unique forum to exchange new business ideas. This is one of the concepts the ROSEWOOD Southern Hub will look further into. Having organized business idea creation workshops in the framework of ROSEWOOD, FuturBois might provide for a model to perpetuate the actions of the Hub on business and innovation support.
