Alptrees Podcasts

The ALPTREES podcast series answer the questions of citizens of all ages and educational levels and give insight into our scientific work to build a transnational guideline for the use and management of non native tree species in the Alpine Space.

From the basics "what is a non native tree species" to specific topics like "women in forestry", each podcast has it's thematic focus. Also our 12 partners throughout the Alpine Space will introduce the audience to the specifics of her/his national status and policy about "non native trees" to give an overview on the challenges of ALPTREES' transnational cooperation between Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Germany and France.
