The integrated management of forest resources has become a critical strategic action considering the multiple roles that forests play in climate change mitigation and adaptation policies, nature conservation, bio-economy, and renewable energy strategies. The newly released European Union (EU) Forest strategy (2021) recognises forests’ central and multifunctional role in the European Green Deal. Forests could significantly support a sustainable and climate-neutral economy while ensuring that natural ecosystems are restored, resilient, and adequately protected.
The generous idea to have one forest strategy embracing all the EU level strategies impacting forest management requires essential efforts in policy and research to identify and integrate the existing synergies and solve complex trade-offs and conflicts. In this context, specialists from various domains (e.g., Forest Ecosystems and Landscape Ecology; Silviculture and Forest Health; Forest Assessment, Modelling, and Management; Environmental Economics and Policy; Forest Operations Engineering and Forest Products) are invited to present their contributions to this Special Issue aiming to highlight the various research approaches concerning integrated management of forest resources.
This Special Issue brings together some of the contributions presented at the 5th Edition of the Integrated Management of Environmental Resources Conference Suceava—Romania (29 October 2021). In addition, other research papers presenting new approaches used in the integrated management of forest resources are highly welcomed.
