TitleCOST Action E42. Growing valuable broadleaved tree species
CreatorCOST Action E42
DescriptionThe main objective of COST Action E42, which runs from June 2004 to November 2008, is to increase the knowledge of growing valuable broadleaved tree species, with emphasis on the production of valuable wood and with the intent to promote non-wood products that can be produced in parallel with, or in addition to, the main product. In respect to wood production the goal is to maximise the share of highly valuable wood in a short production time and low investment of work, energy and capital. The website provides information about the management committee, the scientific programme, meetings and documents. The latter includes country reports from 23 European countries, with more added each year.
