The Rephrame project activities address the social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainable forestry in a multifunctional landscape. We focus on providing new knowledge and practical solutions based on high quality science in several areas, such as:
Impact assessment and monitoring, adaptation and mitigation.
Evaluating woodland resources and potentials
Collecting and applying information about Britain's and Europe's woodland resources.
Land regeneration and urban greening
Establishing woodlands on brownfield and contaminated land.
People, trees and woodlands
Developing a greater understanding of the ways in which trees benefit society and improving delivery of those benefits.
Promoting environmentally acceptable measures of preventing and controlling damage to Britain's trees.
Sustainable forest management
Improving silvicultural and operational solutions for achieving sustainable management.
Tree improvement and forest genetics
Exploring genetic variation and breeding better trees.
Conserving and enhancing the biodiversity of forest ecosystems.
Woodlands and the environment
Understanding the complex interactions between forests and their physical and historic environment.
