Table 3 Attribute values of the selected trees according to their species for conservationists and foresters

From: Resolving the trade-off between production and biodiversity conservation in integrated forest management: comparing tree selection practices of foresters and conservationists

   Number of trees selected Mean DBH (cm) Mean volume (m3) Mean number of TreMs Mean habitat value (habitat points) Mean economic value (Euro)

  1. Note the 0-values for the mean habitat values of beech, which are a result of the fact that a tree’s habitat value is calculated based the occurrence of TreMs, which were absent on these trees
