Forest Climate Protection Project

A forest with unique features

The Wilder Wald Hohenzollern, spread across 46 separate areas in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, is distinguished by its evolution into a natural forest. Due to long-term, extensive restrictions on its use, this forest has achieved double the amount of carbon storage compared to managed forests. With a commitment to at least 50 years of abstaining from timber harvesting, the forest contributes to surpassing the political goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The uniqueness of this forest lies in its natural development, significant deadwood content, and the inclusion of organisms that are less common in managed forests, including woodpeckers and wood-decomposing microorganisms.

Natural Development and Biodiversity

The Wilder Wald Hohenzollern pursues a natural development, resulting in a diverse array of species. This contributes to the preservation of biological diversity and creates habitats for specialized animal and plant species.

Icon Tree Leaves
Carbon-rich Deadwood Ecosystems

By abstaining from timber harvesting, a unique abundance of deadwood is created in the forest. These deadwood ecosystems facilitate decomposition and provide habitat for numerous organisms that are crucial for the forest cycle.

Sustainable Contribution to Climate Protection

The Wilder Wald Hohenzollern plays a key role in climate protection by acting as a significant carbon sink. The clear commitment to long-term timber abstinence and the promotion of natural processes are active measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving the net-zero target by 2050.

Problems of the forest

Insight into the challenges

To counteract the daily challenges in the forest and to create solutions for various problems in this forest, investments are used for the following issues.
Icon Wind, Storm

Storm damage

Forest management faces the challenge of dealing with damages caused by storms. The planting of trees in areas affected by storms requires significant resources and effort.

Icon Sun

Drought

Increasing drought poses a serious threat to the forest. Measures to adapt to this challenge, such as planting trees on dry areas, require financial investments despite the lack of direct returns.

Icon Beetle

Bark Beetle

The infestation of bark beetles presents another challenge threatening the forest. Resources that could be used in managed forests for profitable purposes are instead allocated to combating this pest in order to maintain the health of the forest.
