There should be a Meeting in the forest to talk to Hameln Manager Carsten Bölts Forestry Department over the latest low blow for trees and road closures. That it's raining on this Monday morning in buckets, was not planned. As Wilhelm Berger, a Forester retired, randomly comes over, he offers shelter in his former Forester's house at the Riepen – where the call for educational exchange between him and Carsten Bölts is. Because that old Book drop due to the drought, large parts of their crowns, know Berger from the 60s.
The current Situation: The Fink Borner way, the main access to the Klüt, is locked, the children, the holiday walk are not allowed to play in the forest, and the city of Hameln, warns us not to enter the forest in some Places, because life is a risk. Arm thickness Branches, says Carsten Bölts, is being dropped from the Book, where the dryness of the past years, adds. "The book responds late," he says, "and it lasts longer." A certain amount of time you hold out, then you start from the deadwood in their crowns free. That this would happen, "we have expected". To dry last summer and this still not wet enough, as that it is of no use to the trees in a sustainable way. Already last year, the Book would have shown damage.
The Situation 61 years ago: "in 1958, '60, we had an extreme drought until late in the autumn," says William Berger. Pure book locations with a high efficiency to be like that later on to the victims. It starts with "black spots mark the piece size, and later they were in the maximum diameter of a beer coaster big", which were in the book stem visible, "which knew no". The mucus coming out from the black Spots, allowed secondary pests, such as jewel beetles and Laubholznutzbohrer penetration, "to see a strange death of the book of crowns" was. 20 to 30 per cent, had been almost without a crown, "highly dangerous," says Berger, and yet, to his knowledge, is "nothing", where people would have been hurt. What Berger told then, lets Bölts sit up and take notice: "We have brought all of the affected stocks out", which proved to be a mistake, because the result was: "dense grassing and no taper". What this means, From describes Bölts crisp: "Grass – mouse–". Dense grassing is the worst thing that could happen to a forest.
Bölts' strategy for the infested, some 200 to 300 years old Book is: "I would now try to bring in as much as possible." He speaks of the ecological Gold, which serves as a habitat, especially since the infested trees can be used on the market only for pallets, firewood, and rack goods. What did Berger and his colleagues at the time also: Like, the wood looks like on the inside. The realization came when Berger and colleagues were invited to a Peeling: Even trees, which had hardly any or only small black Spots of meadows in the bark, were not use for the usual furniture-making to: "a place of black stripes, three, four meters long, along came", in the root. Rear Cabinet walls, Yes, and middle layers of shelves and cabinets for other purposes, none of us wanted to have the wood.
On the roads, such as the Fink Borner way to ensure the forestry Commission staff but ran to for safety. "Risk" is the motto, so too the Holtenser Landstraße. There, the Overhang is very strong, the Booking have to. Also on Fink Borner way the trees are cut down, but only after the hatching and setting time in the middle of September; currently, bats would have her in bed for one week.
Carsten Bölts would like to see, for all damages suffered by the forest due to drought and bark beetles, the Positive: "It will be a lot of, a lot of poachers, more stable and ecologically more valuable forest" as before. In the Rest of the brown, dead pines, which remain in many Places are offered, at best, semi-shade, where other plants can grow, and served as a water reservoir. He is excited about "every tree that comes now," on natural rejuvenation so that is in addition to the 20 000 to plant trees, visible. Rowan, for example, and also birch, is a classic pioneer tree species. It was not the "weed of the forest", as some my, but "the eraser of the forest", said his boss always told Bölts. They way to erase the errors made by the person.
The economic damage is great. The forestry Department makes otherwise about half a Million in revenue per year, has decreased, the goal drastically: "The half would be good." Nevertheless, Bölts Department gets to gain from another forest workers, because at the Moment much remains, because the beech and the spruce take so much time and work. Ways to keep free and exempt, for example. Or, how Bölts says: "I can't take care of banks." Oh, and the rain has not stopped yet – "until Christmas" it could pour now, so on, so Bölts, so that the forest is recovering.
