I hereby announce the sad news of the death of one of our greatest European foresters, Hans-Jürgen Otto, ex-president of Pro Silva Europe, a prominent member of the ANW Lower Saxony, former Lower Saxony forestry manager and founder of the LÖWE program, forestry professor and author of the “Waldökologie” who died last week. We have already missed his waking spirit and his diverse European commitment to a natural, multifunctional forestry for over 13 years. Now his tragedy has come to an end. A mourning ceremony took place on Saturday 25 March 2017.
Philippe Morgan, President of Pro Silva Europe
