International Workshop

November 5-6, 2019 in Tallinn, Estonia


Green forest with black and white text. Illustration.Forest regeneration is a key for successful and adaptive forestry in future climate and the prerequisite for the continued and increasing supply of forest biomass and ecosystem services for the present and future societies.

Successful forest regeneration is today more important than ever because of the urgent need of productive forests that can bind the excess atmospheric carbon dioxide and provide renewable raw material for multiple purposes, replacing the plastics and other fossil-based materials. International research collaboration and information sharing helps the society to find cost-efficient and sustainable solutions to regeneration problems.

The workshop is organized jointly by the SNS network “Forest Bioeconomy Network in Forest Regeneration”, by the Estonian University of Life Sciences and by the Swedish University of Life Sciences. The workshop will serve as an important meeting place for Nordic-Baltic forestry, management and research community



The topics include but are not restricted to:

  • Unmanned aerial vechicle (UAV)-based solutions
  • Remote sensing and utilization of satelliite data
  • Phenotyping and individual plant monitoring
  • Technological innovations in forest regeneration


Through presentations, discussions and field excursion the workshop aims to increase the collaboration and general level of competence in the field of forest regeneration and closely related fields.

The workshop starts on Tuesday, November 5 at 10:00, and includes plenary talks, oral and poster presentations. The workshop concludes with a field excursion on Wednesday, November 6, and includes field presentations and demonstrations. All participants are invited to the conference dinner on Tuesday evening.

The full conference program is still to come.



The workshop takes place on November 5-6, 2019 at Estonian Academy of Sciences, Tallinn, Estonia.



The registration is now closed but if you are interested in participating, please contact Marek Metslaid (marek.metslaid@emu.ee).
