Call for Wood Innovators

Dedication / Widmung

The forum is dedicated to my father and grandfather, both passionate forest guards. My grandfather graduated in Eberswalde in 1926. This nearly 100 years before his grandson Ulf is organizing this forum at the same location.

Dieses Forum widme ich meinem Vater und Großvater, beide passionierte Forstleute. Mein Großvater absolvierte 1926 sein Studium in Eberswalde. Dies geschah fast 100 Jahre, bevor sein Enkel Ulf dieses Forum am gleichen Ort organisiert.
