Sustainable use and management of non native trees in the alpine region

Blog

Blogs give us the opportunity to go more into detail about our research and it's fruitful outcome.

Members of the ALPTREES team as well as external experts share their work in the sense of a broader perspective which can include personal stories, views and narrations about failure, success and the passion behind our research on non native tree species.
