With the motto Large-scale disturbances, the main goal of this meeting is to present you how we managed to overcome massive windthrows with following bark-beetle outbreak in our most attractive mountains: High and Low Tatras. We will talk and try to find new solutions in workshops focused on climate change and disturbances its bringing. During the week we will move all around our “little big country” to give you a picture of how our forestry and nature management works. You will see how to use selective logging for sustainable and close to nature forest management in the conditions of Western Carpathians aimed on production of high quality wood and keeping all the environmental functions a forest can provide. We will take a ride on an old forestry train through the beautiful valley of Čierny Balog, where you will be able to catch a glimpse of our history and beauty of our forests. During the week we will move all around our “little big country” to give you a picture of how our forestry and nature management works. Last but not least, you will be a part of our forestry tradition Májobranie that is organized ever year by our LC, with a huge bonfire at the end.
