This Special Issue includes selected contributions from the 15th Annual Meeting of the Northern European Network for Wood Science and Engineering—WSE2019, which was held in Lund, Sweden, 9–10 October 2019. The network had its first annual meeting in 2005, and the purpose of the network is to promote collaboration between Northern European researchers within wood science and engineering. Young researchers are especially encouraged to participate in the meetings and present their work. The conference covers the topics: wood physics and mechanics, wood protection and modification, durability, wood engineering, engineered wood products and composites, and application of wood-based materials.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Forests is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
