The objective of the project is to develop a decision-support tool for forest policy, management and research in Flanders (SimForTree), based on an existing physiological model which simulates growth of forest trees in Flanders and their processing through the forest-wood chain (Anafore).
SimForTree is being created to evaluate both socio-economic and ecological consequences of environmental changes (e.g. climatic change, pollution) or changing policy. As such it can be used as a tool for sustainable development.
Three SimForTree versions are being developed, with a scale and field of application adapted to different stakeholders groups:
(a) SimForTree for the forest-wood chain within the framework of sustainable forest management
(b) SimForTree for environmental applications
