About Waldmärker

Waldmärker forest2 250

A high percentage of the landscape is used by agriculture with only 34% covered by forests. Nevertheless, the Waldmärker company tries successfully to intensify forest production and harvesting, within the limits of sustainability.

Until now, NWFP have not played a significant role and any attempt to develop new products will be determined by the land owners' motivation to increase the monetary benefit from their forests. Hunting and game are also important, so any activity reducing this kind of benefit will be rejected. On the other hand, private forest land owners are open-minded and interested in any useful innovation.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonst ration under grant agreement No. 311919
