Real all-rounders: Our forests
Forests secure income and green jobs, protect against natural hazards, provide energy, contribute to climate protection, are a habitat for animals and plants and offer people recreation. Sustainable utilisation is required to ensure that this remains the case in the future. Where the protective function of forests does insufficient, the WLV implements projects to prevent natural hazards.
Protection forest homepageProtective forests are indispensable in order to protect the living and economic area of the Alpine valleys against the various natural hazards such as avalanches, mudslides, rockfalls, landslides, etc. They are the most sustainable and cost-effective protection variant.
