Selecting tree species for use in rockfall-protection forests



Selecting tree species for use in rockfall-protection forests



Forest Snow and Landscape Research 80(1): 77-86



Research on protection forests designed to alleviate rockfall hazard has increased enormously over the last decade. Data are available concerning the most suitable stem spacing and density regimes in stands. The species used in protection forests can also influence enormously the effectiveness of the forest in conferring a protective role.
