European forests: How climate change, land ownership, and forest-related policies influence future wood supply

TEAMING UP 4 FORESTS, a science-business platform connecting stakeholders across the forest value chain, has released today a new study on “Europe’s wood supply in disruptive times”, which captures the factors identified in numerous scientific studies influencing wood supply from European forests. It outlines the impacts of climate change and also considers other factors, such as political uncertainties and a fragmented forest landscape. Bridging the gap between science and application of insights, it highlights practical implications and response measures for the wood-based industry, forest management and policymakers. The study compiles findings of a wide range of scientific papers and research. Perspectives of different stakeholders have also been evaluated during the process.

The synthesis study report and a business brief are now available on the TEAMING UP 4 FORESTS website at

Key study findings will be discussed by the study authors on 18 March at 1:00 p.m. CET in a Webinar – Europe’s wood supply in disruptive times hosted by TEAMING UP 4 FORESTS.

The study author team comprised of forest scientists and experts across Europe. Dr Metodi Sotirov from University of Freiburg (Germany), chaired the study team and comments:
