The Council for Agricultural Research and Economics is a National Research Organization which operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture, with general scientific competence within the fields of agriculture, agro-industry, food, fishery and forestry. The distribution of the CREA offices throughout national territory allows it to widely extend its expertise and proficiency, and to closely co-operate in conjunction with central administrations, local and regional institutions, companies and various trade, industrial and legal associations.

The Center deals with sustainable forest management and forest tree farming, with main specializations in silviculture, forest genetic resources management and improvement, conservation and improvement of forest biodiversity, multifunctionality, resilience and adaptability to global environmental changes as well as agroforestry and valorization on wood and non-wood good production.

 

La sylviculture se fonde sur une parfait connaissance de l’écologie forestière qui s’appuie elle-meme sur la parfait connaissance des organismes qui la composent et sur leur interdépendance. La sylviculture peut donc se concevoir comme discipline d’application de l’écologie forestière et finalement comme cybernètique forestière appliquée aux besoins de la société

J. P. Schutz  Sylviculture 1, 1990

 

Silviculture is the art and science of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health and quality of forests and woodland to meet the diverse needs and values of landowners and society on a sustainable basis

J. A. Helms The Dictionary of Forestry, 1998
