Marking is one of the core tasks of silvicultural activity. The decisions made are based on the application of the basic forestry methods, but always include a subjective component, as experience plays an important role. In this context, the “silvicultural God’s gaze” in German “waldbaulicher Götterblick” is often spoken of. A possibility to discuss different silvicultural options and their consequences in a factual and comprehensible way is offered by the marteloscope. It is a didactic tool that makes it possible to carry out marking exercises based on quantitative data on site. Ideally, it consists of a real inventory and software that allows evaluation and discussion of the results, as well as a dynamic growth model. The marteloscope was developed in France in the 1990s. Today, there are many more than 40 marteloscopes in Switzerland that deal with a wide variety of silvicultural issues. Marteloscopes play a particularly important role in training and education: they allow the practice, questioning and improvement of one’s own silvicultural actions based on quantitative principles. There is great potential for the further development of marteloscopes, in particular regarding the implementation of specific thematic and silvicultural issues, which, in addition to the usual stand characteristics such as tree species, diameter distribution, base area and volume, for example, allow statements to be made on ecology or on variables relevant to mountain silviculture such as local light availability. Several marteloscope software solutions have been developed in recent years. It would be important at least to simplify the data exchange between the solutions. It would also be desirable to close the gap that currently exists in the modelling of further stand development, to better estimate the consequences of different intervention variants.
