Improvement of forest owners associations capacities for mobilization of wood from private forests

The main aim of the SIMWOOD Pilot project named “Improvement of forest owners associations capacities for mobilization of wood from private forests” in model region Slovenia (whole county) has been to improve the performance, efficiency and internal organization of already established and newly established local associations of forest owners (FOAs) in the future aiming at higher mobilization of wood from private forests. Besides this specific aim, the pilot project has also targeted the whole private forest owner population in Slovenia in order to set the stage for further mobilization of forest owners in the field of cooperation and active approach to forest management.
