Forest Climate Protection Project

A forest with unique features

What makes this forest area unique is its location in the high mountains, which presents a special challenge for management. The parcels extend in altitudes ranging from about 1,000 meters to approximately 2,700 meters above sea level. About 25 % of the total area is utilized for economic purposes, including productive protective forests. The majority comprises non-forested and forested alpine areas, alpine grazing lands, as well as areas of low productivity.

Essential forest functions

Mountain forests adapt to extreme conditions. These forests serve crucial ecological roles, such as preventing soil erosion, maintaining water balance, and preserving biodiversity, all contributing to the stability of mountain regions. Due to their proximity to the snow line and the thin soils, high mountain forests are especially vulnerable to climate change, which can impact local flora and fauna.

Valuable grazing areas

The alpine grazing areas serve an essential ecological function that extends far beyond their role as mere grazing lands for animals. These areas create a diverse habitat, perfectly suited for specialized plant and animal species that have adapted to the extreme conditions of higher mountain elevations. Noteworthy among them are species like sundew, edelweiss, alpine gentian and alpenrose, which thrive in these regions.

Protection of the animal wildlife

About 15 years ago, the Alpine ibex was successfully reintroduced to the Styrian territory. This successful reintroduction not only saved an endangered species but also played a vital role in maintaining the ecological balance and the natural beauty of the mountain landscape.

Problems

Insight into the challenges

To counteract the daily challenges in the forest and provide a solution to the diverse problems within this woodland, investments will be allocated towards the following issues.

Accessibility of the forests

Gstatt Forestry Office's steep slopes offer both scenic beauty and distinct logistical challenges. Conquering these challenges is vital for sustainable timber harvesting. Managing these rugged areas requires tailored technical solutions and specialized equipment to match local conditions effectively.

Natural disasters

Gstatt Forestry Office faces challenges posed by environmental upheavals. Storms, droughts, and soil erosion threaten the forest. To protect the ecosystem, the office uses prevention, early warnings, and resilient trees, requiring adaptive forest management.

Climate-resilient forests

Making forests climate-resilient is essential as climate change disrupts their patterns and dynamics. Adaptation, including resilient tree species, diverse composition, and sustainable management, is crucial. Gstatt Forestry Office addresses this, crafting strategies to boost regional forest resilience against climate change impacts.

Voices from the Forest
