From 17. to 22. September 2017 I took part in the IUFRO 125th Anniversary Congress in Freiburg, Germany. IUFRO stands for International Union of Forest Research Organization and is the oldest scientific union in the world. This congress presents the state of the art in forest research, development and practice. I have tried to sum up what I learned at the congress in 10 points.
