In the first week of April, all project partners gathered in Sweden in Umea. The purpose of the Kick off meeting was to coordinate the first working tasks of the project.

Each country presented past and present situation in their country regarding utilizing small trees in a commercial way. All work packages were discussed in more detail. We also visited Bracke Forest, which is a partner in the project. Bracke Forest has been manufacturing forestry equipment and machines since 1922. They develop and manufacture scarifiers, planting machines, heads for silviculture and biomass, felling heads, and equipment for mechanised seeding. We had the opportunity to see Bracke C16.c – felling head, which will be used in the project.
