Description

The Klostertal forestry association covers an area of 1,448 ha and comprises the shaded mountain forests of the Dalaas and Klösterle municipalities, as well as the Stuben agricultural community. These forest areas are two-thirds protective forest and one-third commercial forest. The great importance of these forests lies in the protection of settled areas against avalanches and mudflows. Sustainable use of the forests can also provide valuable raw material in the form of wood. Based on current economic plans, 5000 m3 of wood can be used annually by the forestry association, corresponding to around 310 truckloads. A forester is employed by the Klostertal Forestry Association for the management of these forest areas. This forester coordinates the reforestation, maintenance and utilization measures in the area, as well as essential infrastructure maintenance in the form of forest roads.

SDG 8

Decent Work and Economic Growth

The neighbouring areas of Dalaas, Klösterle and Stuben decided to jointly manage their forestry operations in a form of community cooperation. The Klosteral forestry cooperative (FBG) was founded in early 2022 under the motto "Together we are strong", aiming to promote the economic wellbeing of all members.

SDG 13

Climate Action

Latest measurements show that the forests managed by FBG Klostertal sequester 3500 tonnes of CO2 per year. Additionally, the foresters here are adapting to climate change by planting new tree species which are more resilient to the changing conditions.

SDG 11

Sustainable Cities and Communities

The forests of FBG Klostertal are playing a crucial role in protecting the people who live in the Klostertal. These protection forests help in the case of avalanches or rockfall, and do so better than any technological solution.
