How can you recognize a healthy forest?

This question was answered by forester Elena Schmidtmeyer in an interview:

In a healthy forest there are trees that are adapted to their location. This means that they cope well with the local soil and climate. In many areas of Germany, these are mainly deciduous trees and firs, less frequently spruces and pines. The old trees should be able to rejuvenate naturally, i.e. produce seeds that germinate and become young trees. As a result, there are different stages of development in one area, the trees are not all the same age and form several layers. In a healthy forest, the associated vertebrates, insects, microorganisms and fungi can live well.

The background to the interview:

We are committed to reforestation. One way of doing this is to make donations and to plant trees. On the other hand, we also contribute to making the topic of “reforestation” more visible to the general public. We interviewed forester Elena Schmidtmeyer and filmed a series of video clips with her that answer many interesting questions on the subject.

Why do we get involved and how exactly do we do it? Please read our separate article here.
