Last week the MMFN Secretariat and the Montagne Fiorentine Model Forest participated in the third General Assembly (GA) of the H2020 project “ONEForest”. It was the occasion to meet all the partners and discuss the way forward for the next year of activities.
During the last day, we had the occasion to present once again to the audience the Model Forest approach and the activities planned to involve three Model Forest (MF) of our network as tutors in the attempt to start a new MF in each Case Study Regions of the project.
The german partners also organize a field trip to the Landteil forest in Lower Saxony, in the district of Stauffenburg. It is 800 hectares large and lies directly in front of the western edge of the Hercynian mountains. This forest illustrates clearly the effects of a long-term, consequent close to nature forestry and sustainable management which earned it the title of “Exemplary Pro Silvaforest”.
