Wood market can save the chestnut

A study analyzes how forest owners react when a disease affects their forests, specifically the chestnut blight, a fungus that infects chestnut. The research, led by the Forest Technological Center of Catalonia, concludes that the presence of an economic interest is the main reason for deciding whether to treat sick chestnut, to abandon it or even to replace it with exotic species such as California pine or spruce Douglas.
