FBG Jagdberg

FBG Jagdberg, under the management of Walter Amann, manages about 1,700 ha of forest in Vorarlberg. Their forests range from a former alluvial forest up to high on the timberline. This brings with it a variety of challenges & development situations.

Project Description

The members of the FBG Jagdberg are the agricultural communities Bludesch, Dünserberg, Röns, Schnifis, Schnifisberg and Thüringen as well as the municipalities Bludesch, Bürserberg, Düns, Satteins, Schlins and Schnifis. By founding the Jagdberg forestry association, it was possible to reach several goals, which are also anchored in the forestry strategy of the state of Vorarlberg. By intensifying sustainable and near-natural management of the forests, which are often overaged, the protection forest areas in particular are rehabilitated and stabilized for future generations.

Quote from Forest Owner

"To invest directly in the stability and quality of the forest, the additional revenues are a very valuable contribution."

SDG 12

Responsible Consumption and Production

By intensifying sustainable and nature-based management of these often very old forests, the protection forest areas in particular are rehabilitated and stabilised for future generations.

SDG 13

Climate Action

Latest measurements show that the forests managed by FBG Jagdberg result in a creditable sink capacity of ~88,000 tonnes of CO₂ over 30 years. Additionally, the foresters here are adapting by planting new tree species which are more resilient to the changing conditions.

SDG 14

Life Below Water

The floodplain forests here are being converted into climate-resistant and species-rich forest areas and rejuvenated through the intensive efforts of FBG Jagdberg. This also creates a new aquatic-dominated habitat, increasing biodiversity.

SDG 15

Life on Land

At ecologically rare sites, FBG Jagdberg has isolated so-called natural forest cells, where forest management is deliberately suspended in order to determine how these sites develop without management.
