Forest mensuration, modelling and forecasting

Collecting and applying information about Britain's and Europe's woodland resources.

This research focuses on quantifying Britain’s woodland resources, enabling the wood processing industries and renewable energy sector to assess the potential for UK raw material. Utilisation of UK timber also depends on timber quality so our research also aims to enable timber producers to understand how to improve their raw material and help ensure wood can compete with other materials.
