La Niva Natural Forest

Naturwald La Niva
The natural forest reserve La Niva is located above Savognin at the foot of the Piz Mitgel. On the dry, lean subsoil of Dolomitschutt grow to 70 percent mountain pine. Spruces make up 29 percent of the tree population.

Description

Due to the harsh environmental conditions, the trees reach their distribution limit and do not reach the height of 50 meters to which they can grow at lower altitudes. Where the forest becomes looser and looser towards the top, the black grouse feels at home. On the open places above the tree line are the mating grounds, which are used again and again every year. In the 52-hectare natural forest, the last large-scale logging took place in 1959, the last tree was felled in 1993. In La Niva, therefore, it is already possible to see how a forest develops without the use of wood.
