Instituto Universitario de Investigación Gestión Forestal Sostenible
For seven years I am the responsible for the innovation department in the company Bosques Natutrales S.A. This company is the first Spanish company dedicated to the management and intensive exploitation of noble hardwood plantations in order to produce quality timber. To do this, I coordinate the program selection and breeding developed by the company, including wood quality parameters in the selection criteria and in this context, I have recently started my doctoral thesis, based in the study of heartwood production of hybrid Juglans.
I also participates in the management decision making as time and intensity of pruning, fertilization management, disease and pest management and implementation of various planting density trials with different target species. I am a connoisseur of hardwood species, mainly cherry and walnut.
On the other hand I have experience as plantations manager in other countries and with other species. I participate in different cooperation projects.
