Pro Silva is going to collect all descriptions of the allready existing network of exemplary forests all over Europe. There are more than 80 descriptions existing in different languages.
Pro Silva will collect the main information in a standardized catalog and publish the list on their website.
There should be a selection filter be established so that you can look up forest vegetations types, tree species, climate zone and different key words.
The first draft version of the catalog of the European Exemplary Forest Network was presented at the annual meeting in September 2019:
The list nown contains 92 exemplary forests which cover an area of about 100.000 ha. The process is still going on and new records are send in.
The first short protraits also arrived in the meantime and will be presented within the following months.
