    Forest management and consulting forest owners


Forests are fascinating ecosystems capable of providing a broad variety of ecosystem services. When soundly managed they can do so indefinitely while maintaining high biodiversity. As a forester I am particularly interested in how forests can be managed to maintain ecosystem functioning and produce timber at the same time. In the Netherlands I am convinced forest management can both increase biodiversity as well as the income from timber simultaneously.

The broad topic of silviculture is my main research interest. I am particularly interested in continuous cover management strategies and how a shift from more regular forestry systems towards more complex single-tree selection management strategies work in practise. Both in the how and why of the management interventions and the financial implications of such management.
