Germany to set up new institute for forest protection

The German government is to set up a new institute to conduct research on forest protection, the Agricultural Ministry announced on Sunday.

The institute is to be located in Harz mountains in the northern German town of Quedlinburg, as part of the Julius Kuehn Institute for cultivated plant research.

Around 20 employees are to work in the future centre for forest protection starting later this year, a ministry spokesperson told dpa.

The new institute is to work together with other research centres on forest ecosystems, forest genetics, international forestry and wood research.
