Enhanced wild fire prevention by using wood energy resources.
Forests which are not maintained represent a large threat for forest fires. The more responsibly we act towards the forest ecosystem, the smaller the risk of fires. Also, vitally weakened and unstable forests are more susceptible to harmful biotic and climate changes, thus increasing the possibilities of damage.
The use of wood significantly contributes to decreasing CO2 in the atmosphere, as CO2 remains neutral since the same amount is emitted during wood burning as during rotting in the forest, and moreover, the use of wood biomass contributes to better care and quality of forests, and to an economical use of deserted areas, which is a better form of fire prevention. Wood is a natural and renewable material representing the right answer to climate changes resulting from excessive quantities of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.
Existing studies will be utilised within the project and applied in fieldwork.
