Strategy and technology development for a sustainanble wood + cork forestry chain

Objective

The objectives are:
i) to maintain the socio-economic and physical sustainability of the cork-oak system and to increase its competitiveness as an integrated natural system with a more efficient use of renewable resources, by improving the technology of their use and by the adoption of novel management tools;
ii) to bring into the European market another wood species for high value uses. The project- will develop a growth and yield model for cork oak growth (wood and cork). The simulation of different options in a wood cork forestry chain will be made and evaluated for socio-economics and sustainability The relevant technological properties of cork oak wood will be studied with an industrial testing in sawmills, veneer cutting and panel production as well as its use in resin-assembled wood components.
