APPLICATION OF WOOD ASH AFTER COMMERCIAL THINNING IN SPRUCE STANDS
Potential benefits of wood ash application in forest on organic soils:
- increased CO2 removals in living biomass, dead wood, soil, litter and harvested wood products due to improved growth conditions and additional increment in living biomass.
The LIFE OrgBalt project aims to implement a wide range of innovative organic soil management measures to demonstrate how these areas can be managed sustainably, taking into account economic, social and climate aspects. 16 project demonstration sites have been established in Latvia and Finland. LIFE OrgBalt studies greenhouse gas emissions from managed organic soils – In total 51 sites are measured – they include all project demonstration sites and reference sites.
