Wooded buffer zones are left to border natural waters. The purpose of buffer zones is to retain nutrients from runoff so that they do not end up in the waters. Individual trees may be removed from the buffer zones, but they must remain wooded. The soil is not prepared in these buffer zones, and forest machinery is not used in them.
A valuable habitat differs from the forest surrounding it. For example, a bogland pond, floodplain, or cliff, which all have their own microclimate and vegetation, are valuable habitats. Their characteristics are preserved during forestry work. Many valuable habitats are already protected by law or forest certification criteria.
In the image, you will find more examples of the methods used to ensure the biodiversity of forest nature during forestry work.
