Leader: Dainis Edgars Ruņģis
Start date: 1.9.2018

The purpose of the study is to develop solutions for limiting Acute Oak Decline (AOD) in the Talsi Hills Forest Research Station, which can be applied to the rest of Latvia as needed. Successful implementation of the objective requires cooperation with the State Forest Service, the Latvian State Forest Research Institute "Silava" and other stakeholders, including LSFRI Silava and LLU State Forest Research Agency "Forest Research Station" and JSC "Latvia's State Forests".

Anticipated results – development of methodologies / guidelines for limiting AOD in the Talsi Hills Forest Research Station area.
