Promote forest owners interest in forest management through contact with foresters

The pilot project reported here ran from September 2016 to June 2017 in France. Its objective was to favor wood mobilization in the Soissonnais Marnais through promote forest owners’ interest in forest management. Based on regional context and local status-quo shared by the local actors of forest sector, this project was focused on an area the Soissonnais Marnais. Indeed, the forest land of this area is characterised by small properties highly fragmented, where local professional foresters has few contact with owners.However, this forest can have interesting economic value due valuable broadleaves, such as oak and ash, growing in this area.
