Sustainable Forest Management

►It is a good deal more than Reduced Impact Logging (RIL)!


Austria is one of the ►most experienced countries in forest management globally. Austria has a strict forest legislation that regulates forest management according to "classical" sustained yield principles and also mandates a certain amount of its forest area for environmental protection and nature conservation purposes.

We offer our superior experience in forest management methods employed in Austria to all of our customers and can therefore help our customers to balance
