Third webinar of the "Exploring Forest Resilience" 

In this webinar Javier de Dios from CESEFOR presents "Enhancing Forest production through water stress amelioration in European Black Pine forests".

These webinar series are organised by ONEforest & RESONATE projects, which is an open science initiative to share knowledge and connect researchers. In each webinar researchers of both projects will give a pitch focused on their own research.

Evaluating Forest Fire and Drought Risk by CESEFOR

As citizens, it's important  to understand the challenges our forests face and the efforts being made to mitigate them. In this post, we dive into the remarkable work conducted by CESEFOR as part of the ONEforest project. Their research focuses on assessing forest vulnerability to fires and droughts, shedding light on crucial indicators and vulnerability maps. Let's explore their findings and their potential impact on our forests.


ONEforest study reveals positive impacts on tree growth and soil moisture in Catalonia's mixed forests

In response to the escalating frequency of drought events, ONEforest researchers have been investigating innovative approaches to enhance forest adaptability while safeguarding vital resources like soil moisture. A recent study titled "Close-to-nature management effects on tree growth and soil moisture in Mediterranean mixed forests," conducted by researchers from  CTFC and CESEFOR, sheds light on the potential of close-to-nature forest management to promote resilient ecosystems.


Revealing the Influence of Top-Soil-Cover on Slope Stability and Erosion: Insights from the ONEforest Master's Thesis

In her Master's Thesis, titled "Investigation of the impact of a Top-Soil-Cover on the erosion characteristics and the stabilisation potential on slopes and forest soils," Stefanie Radinger, a colleague from the Graz University of Technology, delved into the significance of the ONEforest project.


Unveiling the Role of Tomato Planting in the ONEforest Project

Yes, you read correctly. We are indeed planting tomatoes in ONEforest.

Our partners at the University of Trento's Polymer and Composites Laboratory have initiated an exciting new research endeavor as part of the ONEforest project, focusing on the investigation of topsoil cover. Specifically, they have chosen to conduct experiments using tomato plants. The primary objective is to explore the impact of their newly developed bio-based products on plant growth in agricultural applications.


Significant Advances Made in the Mediterranean Pilot 

The ONEforest team dedicated to "Silviculture and management of Mediterranean forests" recently conducted its 8th formal meeting to discuss the overall progress of tasks and deliverables, as well as the work plan for the upcoming weeks.


CESEFOR participates in the next webinar Exploring Forest Resilience

Next May 12 at 10:30 CEST, ONEforest and RESONATE hosted its webinar  "Exploring Forest Resilience". This time, as part of the ONEforest research, our partner Javier de Dios Garcia from CESEFOR participates with the talk "Enhancing Forest production through water stress amelioration in European Black Pine forests".

These webinar series are part of an open science initiative by ONEforest and RESONATE to share knowledge and connect researchers. In each webinar, researchers from both projects present a pitch focused on their own research.

Have you ever realised how our health is connected to the forest’s health?  

Forests give us so much to our health. They purify the water, clean the air, capture carbon to fight climate change, provide food and life-saving medicines, and improve our well-being.


ONEforest met in Göttingen

Between 27th  February and 1st March, the ONEforest consortium celebrated its 1st General Assembly of 2023 hosted by our partner University of Göttingen (Germany).
