STAR TREE - Multipurpose Trees and Non-Wood Forest Products, a Challenge and Opportunity

Lack of information, capacities and knowledge at different stages of the non-wood forest products (NWFP) value chain, often prevents realising the full potential of NWFP and multi-purpose trees (MPT) in generating wealth in rural areas in the context of a bio-based European economy.  The goal of this project is to provide better understanding, knowledge, guidance and tools to support relevant stakeholders in optimising the management of MPT and developing innovative approaches for increasing the marketability and profitability of NWFP for a more competitive rural economy.
