Sustainable Forest Biomass: Recycling of Wood Ash
A field trip organised by the VALERIE Finnish case study, ‘Sustainable Forest Biomass: Recycling of Wood Ash’ took place on 8th June 2016. A group of stakeholders and researchers spent a rainy Wednesday in the North Karelian forests discussing the use of recycled wood ash from various perspectives. There was a demonstration of spreading wood ash for use as a fertilizer and people could witness with their own eyes the positive influence of wood ash on forest growth. At the end of the day it was a surprise to see that even a cycle path can be made from wood ash!
Details of the field trip have been posted to Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/European-Forest-Institute-EFI/146786162041660 and published as a newspaper article (in Finnish) in the 'Karjalainen', the newspaper from North Karelia.
