Mountain forests and employment in Savoy, France

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A case study undertaken by the European Observatory of Mountains Forests (EOMF) of how the forests in the alpine department of Savoy, France are used to provide sustainable employment. Municipal forests tend to be large and coniferous (Norway spruce, silver fir, and Scots pine), private forests are tiny and broadleaf, and the state controls some forests on land subject to erosion. Although the area of forest has increased in recent years, employment in forestry activities has not followed the same trend. Author call for greater cooperation among forest actors, greater recognition for wood workers in logging activities, and for greater promotion of the qualities of local wood. - (SLD)
