INTERFORST is all set to hit the floors in another two weeks time. This edition will highlight some of the most important topics on forestry and technology. Bioeconomy gets a special attention as one of the key areas of exploration in the post pandemic phase.
Forestry has many levers and long planning periods, which is why all the parties involved in the forest and wood value chain have already been discussing potential solutions to the numerous new challenges resulting from climate change and its consequences for years. The growing importance of the forest for society adds further to the pressure to succeed. As a leading trade fair, INTERFORST 2022, being held in Munich from July 17 to 20, offers a host of solutions for each individual step in forest management right up to wood recycling for a forward-looking approach to forest management.
Josef Ziegler, President of the Bayerischer Waldbesitzerverband (Bavarian Forest Owners Association) comments: “Forest owners face huge challenges. We urgently need innovations and solutions to be able to make the necessary adjustment and restructure our forests successfully. Our forests do a lot for society and, among other things, also make an indispensable contribution to climate protection. INTERFORST 2022 is an important meeting place for the forest industry. I am delighted that we can use the trade fair this year again to share expertise on a broader scale and one on one.”
To successfully develop the bioeconomy, it is of crucial importance that efficient production and provision of wood as a raw material is and remains possible. Ideally, this not only takes the other various forest functions into account but does so in such a way as to support the overall capacity of the forest. The integrative approach of multifunctional forestry is a true recipe for success. At INTERFORST 2022, exhibitors will therefore also be showing machinery and equipment, as well as complete system solutions for forest regions that are difficult to access, for tree care in recreational forests, and for landscape conservation in nature reserves.
