At the beginning of June, a Guide describing the methodology for the introduction of continuous cover forestry and the preparation of their management plan was published on the website of the Forestry Department of the National Land Centre. The contents of the Guide are well supplemented and supported by the 2019 publication of the Pro Silva Switzerland (Hatt., S.: “Checkkarten Dauerwald”). The Hungarian version of which is published almost simultaneously with the French and English editions based on the original German text.

The Hungarian partner organization, Pro Silva Hungaria, publishes a 35-page, colourful, well-illustrated, A6-sized booklet, suitable for field use, in Hungarian, entitled “Characteristics of the continuous cover forest”. The booklet is available at the Pro Silva Hungaria Association and by mail order on the website of the Hungarian Forestry Association. The brochure, which is also suitable for field use and contains calculation examples, provides the reader with knowledge based on the proven results of more than 100 years of Swiss continuous cover forest management practice.

With the Guide and the new booklet, significant professional support will be provided to forest managers, forest owners, forest engineers and forest technicians who want to manage successfully in this sylvicultural regime.
