Successful verification

The forest of Bludenz climate protection project was successfully verified using the ISO-certified SILVACONSULT Carbon Standard® method. The credits from the verified carbon emission in 2022 are now available for sale. In order to strengthen the stability of the forest, the first profits from the sale will be reinvested in the active regeneration of the protection forests, among other things.

TÜV_Austria

Forest audit in the Bludenz municipal forest

In summer 2023, the project was assessed by TÜV Austria as part of a one-day audit. The sustainable possibilities of the forest of Bludenz were discussed between the forester, TÜV Austria and Tree.ly on the sites. The focus was on ways to ensure the preservation of the protection forests and to strengthen natural regeneration.

Feasibility study completed

In the feasibility study the project options for the city forest of Bludenz were determined. The town of Bludenz opted for a stock conservation project for at least 30 years in which carbon is actively conserved in the forest.

Forest Climate Protection Project

A forest with special features

Of the 1,942 hectares in the forest of the city of Bludenz, care is taken to preserve the multifunctionality of the forest despite difficult use and development. The main tasks of the forestry operation are the preservation of the forest assets through sustainable management, as well as the achievement of stable, species-rich and site-adapted mixed stands.

trees
200 Years Old Pines

The trees of the city of Bludenz have seen the passage of time. The forest provides a unique habitat for numerous species and makes valuable contributions to the stabilization of ecosystems and should therefore be preserved and appreciated.

Faucet
Numerous Nature Reserves

In the Bludenz forest, there are about 870 hectares of nature reserves, which play a decisive role in the preservation of biodiversity. They provide long-term protection for the environment, promote natural forest development and high drinking water quality.

Flood Protection through Riverside Forest

The trees in the Bludenz floodplain forests adapt to changing water levels and soil moisture, protecting it from flooding. The floodplain forest plays a crucial role in the impact of extreme weather events due to increasing climate change.

Problems

Insight into the challenges

In order to counteract the daily challenges in the forest and create a solution to multiple problems in this forest, investments are used for the following problems.
icon of sun
Overaged Protective Forest/ Preservation of Protective Function

An overaged protection forest may provide less diverse habitats, often has a lower natural regenerative capacity, and the germination capacity of trees decreases, making regeneration more difficult.

bug
Damaged Wood

Insects, fungi or other pests can infest entire forest areas and weaken or kill trees. Dead trees lose their ability to store carbon, contributing to the release of carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere.

fire icon
Difficult access situation

Forest access in Bludenz is particularly difficult due to the topographical conditions. The region is characterized by steep slopes, which makes cultivation difficult.

global warming icon
Climate Change

Climate changes such as altered precipitation patterns, higher temperatures, and extreme weather events affect the health and growth of forests. They become more susceptible to disease and their ability to store CO₂ is impaired.

sustainable development goals

How this projects supports the SDGs

We are committed to directly and indirectly supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals in our climate protection projects. The SDGs are an excellent framework for activities that lead to a better and more sustainable future.

SDG13

Measures for climate protection

The climate protection project and the commitment not to fall below a certain stock level within the next 30 years will help to preserve the carbon sink in the forest.
The Icon of SDG number 14

SDG14

Life under water

With 10 ha of aquatic areas, the forest operation contributes to the conservation of these important habitats. In addition to flowing and standing waters, significant marsh and swamp areas are also found.

SDG15

Life on land

On the areas of the forestry operation of the City of Bludenz three nature reserves, or Natura2000 areas can be found. These are "Spirkenwälder Brandnertal", "Klostertaler Bergwälder" and "Verwall". Each of these areas contributes with its specific microclimates to a high biological diversity.
ISO_Red

ISO 14064-2:2019 Based Methodology

Our projects use the "SILVACONSULT® Forest Carbon Standard" methodology according to ISO 14064-2:2019, which ensures that companies follow transparent and consistent methods to measure and report their emissions.

TÜV_Austria

Externally Certified Projects

In cooperation with our partner, we organize the validation of our projects by an external certifier such as TÜV Austria. We then coordinate the annual monitoring by the certifier as well as the marketing and distribution of the verified climate protection services (VER).
