When calculated, the Schwangau municipal forest offsets the emissions of 127 citizens. The community wants to be sensitive to the forest – this is emphasized many times when the Shuanggao Tourism and Environment Commission deals with the Forestry Plan for the next 20 years. The aforementioned influences on climate also played a role.
Shuanghao Municipal Council visited the municipal forest
Before that, the municipal council got an overview of the municipal forest as part of an excursion. Mayor Stefan Reinke said you should not deal with it only in theory (CSU), but also in practice. An expert from the Department of Agriculture and Forestry announced the committee Cowpurine Insight into forest management planning. The previous plan expires at the end of January, so it needs to be updated.
schwango About 300 hectares of forest. However, not all of this is easy to use – some are difficult to access. The plan shows that the forest has a special meaning to the landscape. There is no clear cut in schwangu anyway. Obviously, the forest must be transformed for climate change. While the spruce is disappearing in many parts of Germany, Schwangau residents want to continue to rely on the tree species.
Forest in Schwangu: Fir trees decreased slightly
Spruce was 86 percent in 2004, and is currently at 84 percent. However, the ratio should be reduced. In the future, 70 percent of the timber should be coniferous – 10 percent of it should be spruce. The reserves that are still there because of the spruce are large – it is more than 120 years old. In principle, one wants to build up a large stock of all kinds of trees—however, the proportion of fir must be somewhat reduced, while the stock of other trees must be increased. In general, less wood is removed from the Schwangau Municipal Forest than is added. When reducing, also pay attention to the tourist season and protected areas – eg to protect birds. One of the problems with the Schwangau is the damage from biting – the expert suggested that the number of shots needs to be increased.
Mayor Stefan Rinke spoke of a high level of responsibility. Objective: The community forest should be managed in an optimal manner. Rinke also expressed his request for continued availability of government support. “The municipality cannot do it alone.” The Environment and Tourism Committee unanimously decided that the municipality should draw up an action plan for the coming years – detailed planning is still pending. “It’s a big project,” says Rinke.
