A productive meeting was held for ProSilve Europe delegates recently in France. A new President was confirmed, Philippe Morgan, from the United Kingdom and new chairpersons for the United Kingdom, Bill Mason and Switzerland, Erwin Schmid, were announced. - Delegates also adopted three new papers on climate change, energy and forest management practices for the Mediterranean.
Welcome to all the friends of PRO SILVA in Pays de la Loire, on west of France, in the kingdom of oaks.
The president of PRO SILVA FRANCE, his council and the members of the West Regional Group are delighted to welcome the delegates of Pro Silva of all the countries, and suggest showing them one of the most prestigious regular high forest of oak in National forest of Bercé, with the “Canton des Clos”, world-famous, and then several private forests, stemming from former coppices with standards, in conversion in continuous cover forests since more or less distant periods.
We hope numerous among you to attend this annual international meeting.
