Preliminary results from work package 2 in Smallwood were presented in the conference “NB Nord 2020 – Forest Operations for the future”.

The conference was held in Helsingør (Denmark) on September 22 – 24 2020, and virtual participation was also possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation. The conference brought together more than 70 participants from the Nordic and Baltic region, including researchers, practitioners and students. The title of our talk was “Boom-corridor thinning trials with an upgraded version of Bracke C16 in biomass dense first thinnings in Sweden, Finland and Slovenia – preliminary results from the Smallwood project” and it raised the interest for our project amongst the audience. The recorded presentation can be accessed from the link: https://nordicforestresearch.org/nb-nord/ and the submitted abstract will be published in a book of conference proceedings.
