Current procedures, know-how and state-of-the-art technology

The extensive program is one of the great highlights of the DLG-Waldtage!

In the 13th Brilon Forest Symposium current trends and topics of forestry practice are intensively discussed with exciting lectures and explosive discussions. The guiding theme for 2019 is "Sustainable risk management in the forestry and timber industry: have we been on the wrong track for 300 years?"

Extensive process demonstrations and technical comparisons offer exhibitors and visitors of the event the opportunity to present and experience current trends and technology through the combination of demonstration and explanation.

Specials distributed across the site, as cross-manufacturer demonstration points, further focus on certain key topics.
