Manual on Acute Forest Damage
The Seminar on the Impact of Acute Forest Damage on Harvesting and Silvicultural Operations held in Bonn (Federal Republic of Germany) in
1987, recommended the preparation of a manual bringing together the experience throughout Europe in dealing with forest damage. Based on
this, the Joint FAO/ECE/ILO Committee on Forest Technology, Management and Training decided, at its Seventeenth Session in 1988, to
prepare the present Model Forest Damage Manual.
