Changing climatic conditions in Germany, accompanied by severe natural disturbances have brought the forest in Germany into the public spotlight. One of the central discussions is the contribution of forests to carbon storage in order to reduce the consequences of climate change while taking into account nature conservation and economic concerns. Several approaches are being considered to compensate forest owners for the provision of these additional services. One of these approaches is the Wald-Klimastandard, which aims to enable CO2-certificate trading, similar to what is practiced abroad. In this context, practical recommendations are needed for forest owners to adapt their forest to climate change. UNIQUE was commissioned to develop a practical guide for climate-adapted tree species selection and for silvicultural recommendations for climate-re

  • Background study for the Wald-Klimastandard for carbon storage in German forests
  • Compilation of existing recommendations of climate-adapted tree species
  • Evaluation of the practical suitability of the listed tree species
  • Development of silvicultural recommendations for climate-resilient forests
