Beskrivning

The lecture is an argument for imagining the future Swedish wood industry as a high-tech industry. The living tree surprises us with its versatile abilities to adopt to changing situations with much knowledge to harvest. Trees are naturally pretensioned and therefore structurally optimized. The joint between a branch and the trunk is more efficient than its artificial counterpoint. The naturally protection against insects and fungus is more environmental friendly than artificial chemistry. A deeper understanding of such mechanisms can benefit the wood industry and point on new design and technologies.
