Pfad der Pioniere 11: Nachhaltige Lichtspiele


The many young males at post 11 are unusual for a spruce forest. Often a spruce forest is uniformly composed of large, thick trees. Because spruces shoot up quickly and become thick, but then hardly grow anymore. New trees can only grow back when an old spruce dies and light returns to the ground. In a protective forest, this uniformity carries risks. Such forests are susceptible to storms and beetle infestation. Foresters try to counteract uniformity by cutting down trees so that younger plants can grow back. This management (mountain harvesting) not only creates an effective protective forest, but is also good for wood production.
