Integrated plant protection - pests and pathogens affecting young growth

The department is responsible for the constant monitoring of potential insect pests on oak (such as the oak processionary moth, gypsy moth, winter moth (Operophtera brumata)) and pine (large pine pests), using appropriate monitoring methods. Based on the monitoring results and information from the digital forest protection reporting system, forest regions at risk can be identified in good time and suitable courses of action can be recommended.

Another focus, in line with integrated plant protection, is on prevention, and the development of environmentally friendly regulation methods that avoid as far as possible the use of chemical or synthetic pesticides.

This area of expertise also covers the prevention and control of damage to young growth, caused for example by mice or the large pine weevil in the numerous afforestation projects currently in progress.
