Forest and climate

Climate change and the effects are also noticeable in Austria's forests: drought and pest infestation exert high pressure. That is why it is important to make forests climate-friendly for the future, to promote diversity, to think and act in the long term. The forest is not only affected, but also part of the solution. The raw material wood makes an indispensable contribution to climate protection in many possible applications due to the long-term storage of carbon.
