The European FOREST-IN project (www.forest-in.eu), funded by the Erasmus + program, which started in 2016, ended at the end of 2019. The partnership consisted of 7 partners, including Forêt Model de Provence, from 3 countries (France, Spain, Portugal). The project was born from the common need, of the various countries involved, to have a predominance of fragmented private forest properties in very small areas and mainly under the management of owners without technical training.
