Forestry and forestry in climate change - challenges, impact and adaptation measures

In his presentation, the speaker will provide information on the relevance of the man-made greenhouse effect for forests and the forestry and wood cluster. In doing so, he will concretize the impact of climate change on forests based on current damage phenomena and balances in the Free State of Thuringia. The focus will be on the tree species spruce and the drought damage and bark beetle damage that has occurred in it, as well as on the signs of dieback in older copper beeches. The final section outlines the adaptation measures that the state forestry administration in Thuringia is using to prepare for unavoidable climatic changes. These include ecologically oriented forest management, forest conversion, but also preparation for major damaging events such as storms, pest mass propagation and forest fires, as well as practical forest research.

Dr. Nico Frischbier studied forestry at the Technical University of Dresden and completed his forestry traineeship, including his second state examination, at the Saxony-Anhalt State Forestry Administration. This was followed by work as a forestry expert and consultant and as a scientist at the Universities of Göttingen and Dresden. Since 2007, he has been working for the Thuringia Forestry Institute (Landesforstanstalt Thüringen-Forst-Anstalt öffentlichen Rechts) at the Gotha Forestry Research and Competence Center on forests in the context of climate impacts, climate protection and climate adaptation within the framework of state-specific, national and European research networks.
