The "Thüringer Bündnis Wald & Holz"
(Thuringian alliance of Forest & Wood)
is a voluntary association of various important players in the Thuringian forest and wood industry. Common goal is the improvement of both, the public perception
and the economical, ecological and social importance of the value chain of wood.
Although being the most densely wooded country of the European Union, the Federal Republic of Germany is using its forestal potential but unsatisfactorily. A large part of the forest area is fragmented into very small partitions. These small private forests are often subject to unfavourable ownership structures. An often unsufficient silvicultural know-how on the part of the owners causes a bad cultivation of the forests, or even none at all, and withdraws these potentials from an ideal cultivation by forestry. It is the aim of the non-profit company (gGmbH) “Wald-wird mobil.de” to support forest owners in transferring their forests into a well managed forestry care.
„Privatwaldförderung Thüringen“ (Promoting private forests in Thuringia), is a project, which is working at improving the forestal structures of Thuringian private forests. In public-private-partnerships, a close cooperation between private enterprise and public authorities was initiated in order to recognize silvicultural problems and find ideal solutions especially for the small private forests. It is the objective of this project to include valuable private forests in longterm and well-managed forestry and cultivate and groom them in an ideal way.
