The forest management of silver fir, beech and oak were also covered during this exchange since they are key species in both Czech and German forests. Marteloscope exercises (Integrate+) were carried out in Steinkreutz and Rosskopf in order to give the exchange participants the possibility to try applying some of the management concepts covered during the exchange.
