Facts and Stats
6,470 ha project area
Feasibility study carried out in 2021
Status: Preparations for certification under way
The Stand Montafon includes the Forstfonds-managed forests in the areas of Bartholomäberg, Gaschurn, Silbertal, Schruns, St. Anton im Montafon, St. Gallenkirch, Tschagguns and Vandans. The project area covers 6,470 ha, making Stand Montafon the largest forest owner in Vorarlberg. The project analysis foresees a creditable carbon sink performance of about 353,000 tonnes of CO2 in 30 years, or about 11,000 tonnes of CO2 per year for 30 years. A large part of the forest stock is located at least 1200m above sea level, in mountainous terrain. This makes management more difficult but also results in an increased protective function. With the additional financial resources generated, Stand Montafon can manage these areas even more sustainably.
