Study of the Natural Forest Academy: Almost 90 % of the forest area in Germany is in a poor condition in terms of nature conservation. This is the alarming conclusion of a recent study by the Naturwald Akademie. The authors of the „Alternative Forest Condition Report“ published that this lack of near-natural forest ecosystems is leading to a severe loss of biological diversity.
Study of the Natural Forest Academy et al: Depending on the degree of management, beech trees change their shape. If the forest is weakly managed or has not been managed for a long time, beech trees become more stable than in traditional forestry. In addition, the amount of usable wood increases significantly, which could have consequences for forestry in the future.
