We invite you to participate in a study on small-scale forest owners’ attitudes to forest management!

20th  of January 2020, Hamburg, Germany

Small-scale forest owners are important as their perceptions and management strategies affect timber supply, ecosystem services and forest resilience in climate change. The project, ValoFor, reaches out to small-scale private forest owners in Austria, Finland, Germany, Slovenia and Sweden. One part of the project is to chart the characteristics of forest owners and to investigate their attitudes to different management strategies.

Taking part is voluntary, but we hope you will share your opinions. Your answers are important as they contribute to formulate future forest policies and management practices. Every answer is important, and the response rate will determine the overall reliability of the study.
