Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn GmbH

In order to ensure flight clearance for airport runways of Frankfurt-Hahn, certain trees must be removed. Various municipal forest areas are affected by these fellings. UNIQUE was commissioned to determine the resulting economic disadvantages for local forest owners according to current forest valuation guidelines. Based on a forest inventory of the concerned forest areas, the disadvantages of premature use or changes in the production target were evaluated. For one forest area a comparison of two scenarios employing different management concepts was carried out and evaluated economically. Additionally, management measures for a Natura 2000 site within the analyzed zone were elaborated in order to fulfil conservation needs while ensuring safety.

  • Valuation of six hectares of forest as a basis for sales negotiations.
  • Valuation of current value and loss due to premature use for 12 hectares of forest.
  • Comparative economic evaluation of a mixed oak-beech with a birch forest for fuelwood production.
  • Compilation of six reports about the resulting economic disadvantages for local forest owners.
