On this page you find the translations of woody species and of terms as well as their explanations (marked with yellow background), which were used in the NFI.

standard, reserved
Mature tree left on the stand area after regeneration. The reserved standard should develop greater diameter and also protect the young forest.

[D] Überhälter

[F] réserve
Arbre du vieux peuplement conservé après la régénération d'un peuplement. La réserve peut ainsi atteindre des gros diamètres et protéger d'autre part la jeune forêt.

[I] rilascio
Albero del vecchio popolamento rilasciato sul terreno dopo l'affermazione della rinnovazione. L'albero stramaturo dovrebbe da una parte raggiungere dimensioni maggiori, dall'altra garantire protezione al bosco giovane.
