In the face of climate change, geopolitical disruption, and current demographic developments, the future supply of wood from European forests has become a highly relevant topic of interest for many stakeholders. The urgency of this issue has unveiled itself in recent years more than ever before. It is indispensable that effective measures are implemented already now to respond to current and future changes.

However, to enable meaningful actions, a solid evidence base is crucial. Against this background, a group of internationally renowned experts from across a range of scientific backgrounds and disciplines carried out this comprehensive study titled ‘Europe’s wood supply in disruptive times’ in the framework of the science-business platform TEAMING UP 4 FORESTS. When analysing the existing scientific evidence and preparing this study, the authors were guided by the questions identified at Think Tank Meetings and a Stakeholder Dialogue convened by the platform. This study does not only illuminate individual aspects of the availability of wood but also provides an overall picture of multiple factors influencing wood supply and their complex interrelationships. Furthermore, the second part of this publication has a strong implementation-oriented focus which empowers stakeholders to truly put science into practice.
