Petucco, Claudio, 2011. Recreational preferences in relation to stand treatment practice in young pedunculate oak : an empirically-based international comparison. Second cycle, A1E. Alnarp: SLU, Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre



The aim of this study was to investigate recreational preferences for contrasting
stem densities in young stands of penduculate oak. In particular, variations in preferences
were examined in relation to the respondents’ affiliation with forestry and
their nationality. Due to the increasing importance of oak, especially in the context
of urban forests, knowledge of such preferences could have strong implications for
future management practices of oak. The study was based on five pairs of colour
photographs from each of five recently thinned plots in a 13-year old experiment.
The plots presented five different residual stand densities: 7000 stems ha
