Press invitation: ​Welcome to Forest Romania 16-18 September

Forest Romania will be the first dedicated professional forestry fair in Romania, a forestry country with sizeable forest resources and an extensive forest industry. The fair is being held by two of the world’s leading organizers of forestry & agricultural trade fairs: Elmia of Sweden and DLG of Germany, 16-18 September in Zizin, just outside the city of Braşov.

Forest Romania’s top attraction is a two-kilometer-long demo trail where exhibitors will demonstrate felling operations using skidders, harvesters, forwarders, cableways, and farm tractor applications. The demo trail goes through steep terrain with a significant elevation difference.

In conjunction with Forest Romania 2015 there will also be seminars, industry meetings and other activities, including events in cooperation with the forestry faculty at the University of Braşov.

With the aid of cutting-edge expertise, we will evaluate various machine systems for both their economic efficiency and their environmental impact, says Dr. Reiner Hofmann from DLG who is responsible for the seminar program of Forest Romania 2015.

The Romanian forest industry must cope with demanding conditions: steep terrain, large stems and a sparse network of forest roads. Simple skidders are used today and significant volumes of timber are still brought out with horses. However there is strong demand for the timber and the prices match those in the rest of Europe. The low level of mechanization makes Romania a very interesting potential market for forest machinery and modern forest technology.

We believe Romanian forestry has a very promising future as we can see already today that companies are investing in new technology and services. The Romanian forest industry needs a good meeting place so that professionals can see and test the new technology and services at home in the forest and discuss today’s challenges, says Anamaria Deliu, the Project Manager of Forest Romania 2015.
