TreeNet 10-year anniversary conference

On June 27/28, 2022, the TreeNet 10-year anniversary conference was taking place in the Basel region in Switzerland. The conference focused on the assessment of tree growth with different experimental methods and networks.

The 2-day program included a lecture series, a workshop and an excursion to the Swiss Canopy Crane II at Hölstein including a crane ride into the treetops of this beautiful mixed forest. The workshop also aimed at writing a white paper about the future of forest monitoring and research networks like TreeNet. “How could the ideal future network for forest growth assessments look like?”; “What are new approaches that need to be considered in existing and future networks?”, and “Which requirements from science and society should it be able to fulfill?” are examples for questions that will be discussed at the workshop.

The venue of the conference was the Bad Bubendorf Hotel near the city of Basel, which can conveniently reached by public transportation.
