TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE EMERGENCE OF INTER-PROFESSIONAL PROJECTS, CENTRED ON A FOREST MANAGED :

  • Sustainably,
  • Diversified,
  • Attractive for investments and supporting competitive territories.

FCBA contributes, through its advanced expertise in forest production, to defining a modern and sustainable forestry project, supporting a competitive wood industry.

Wood supply at the FCBA is the interface between industrial needs and the forest resource, in compliance with sustainable management. It includes forest harvesting operations, transport and logistics, from the standing trees in the forest to the raw material delivered to the processing units.

THE LEVERS ON WHICH FCBA ACTS TO IMPROVE THE GROWTH AND QUALITY OF FRENCH STANDS AND THE AVAILABILITY OF WOOD TO INDUSTRY ARE :

Detailed knowledge

Detailed knowledge of the growth of species through the monitoring of a national experimental forestry network,

Varietal creation

Varietal creation for major species (Maritime pine, Poplars, Douglas Fir, etc.) benefiting from the contribution of green biotechnologies (somatic embryogenesis, molecular marking, etc.),

Innovation

Innovation from stand regeneration to harvesting, by devising management projects adapted to the diversity of French forests and the constraints of climate change, and meeting the expectations of economic players.

Sustainable forest harvesting and supply

Sustainable forest harvesting and supply by improving the performance of forestry and wood transport, with the aim of harvesting more and making better use of the resource by acting on supply.
