How Importsant is the Forest
The forest is more than just a habitat for plants and animals, a supplier of wood or the piece of nature in which we take our Sunday walk. An intact forest fulfills many other functions – which makes it all the more important for it to be sustainably managed and protected.

The forest is not in vain considered the “green lung” of our planet: it purifies the air, stores carbon dioxide and supplies fresh oxygen. Even a single tree, for example a 25-meter-high beech, produces enough oxygen during the summer to create breathing air for ten people. At the same time, thanks to the enormous leaf area of 1,600 square meters, such a tree looks like a dust filter – it takes us a ton to get it out of our air in one year.
In addition, for the development of the child a varied stay in nature is of great importance. Take advantage of all the opportunities that the forest offers to escape the stress and hectic pace of everyday life with your child. Not a few children, so-called “Zappelphilippe”, get tablets prescribed to come to rest. But is this always appropriate? Bringing calm and balance into the life of your offspring is a goal that parents can achieve with simple means and, on top of that, a lot of fun.
Another important aspect when considering the weather development is that a healthy mixed forest, due to the water-retaining ability of the forest soil preserves the landscape from soil erosion (= erosion) by rapidly draining surface water. The forest can also prevent the risk of ground slippage, as the widely branched root network of the trees provides support for the soil.
You see, the mixed forest has many tasks to fulfill. Conserving mixed forest is therefore an important requirement.
