Particularly due to the considerable temporal misallocation of fellings in the course of the use-side estimation of wood removals and fellings, the project "Resource monitoring for wood" has undertaken analysis and modeling of timber storage accumulation in the context of extreme storm events.
With an emphasis on the storage of roundwood in Germany after the extreme storm events Lothar and Kyrill, an article presenting scientific results has been published in the journal "European Journal of Forest Research”. For this purpose, empirical data from the German Forest Accountancy Data Network (FADN) were used. Correlations between changes in timber prices, the extent of damage and timber storage accumulation were evaluated and quantified by means of regression analyses. Furthermore, the influence of tree species groups, types of ownership and size classes of forest enterprises on the storage of roundwood was investigated and quantified.
