Reclamation for forestry

In this field we analyse the development of forest ecosystems in the North German lowlands. The investigations focus on basic questions of afforestation on mining sites. This includes substrate evaluation, the development of guidelines for a good soil preparation, the site-adapted selection of tree species and the tending of young stands. Even more our activities address the transformation of unstable pine plantations into semi-natural mixed oak forests. Changing environmental conditions and conflicting interests between profitability and ecological targets need management strategies that promote both timber production as well as ecosystem services.
