combined carbon offset project 
Deutschland Plus - Werdohl

Deutschland Plus Werdohl

Werdohl, Sauerland

The Sauerland is one of the regions most affected by the storm "Kyrill" in Germany. Also in the city forest of Werdohl "Kyrill" on January 18, 2007 tore big holes. In 2008, cooperation began to deal with storm damage in the forest.

On evacuated areas where the storms were raging, almost all the local deciduous trees are planted from the rowan to the beech tree to create a new, near-natural, stable forest generation.
On the dry upper slope, heat-loving species such as e.g. Dewberry and cherry are planted, in the lower valley areas e.g. the sycamore, which relies on fresher locations.
The young trees are not planted nationwide, but introduced in groups. Natural regeneration (e.g., birch, mountain ash, willow) is integrated into the planting area.

Further works to be done on this area:

  • Grouped planting on storm surfaces
  • Forest tending
  • Care of young trees
  • Targeted care of sustainable trees by hand lashing of oppressor trees
