    The effect of slight thinning of managed coniferous forest on landscape appreciation and psychological restoration

    We investigated the influence of slight thinning (percentage of woods: 16.6%, basal area: 9.3%) on landscape appreciation and the psychological restorative effect of an on-site setting by exposing respondents ...
