The forest wilderness in Lower Saxony continues to grow: In addition to the existing 33,000 hectares of natural forest in Lower Saxony, another 1000 hectares of forest area have been added in Solling, where the forest is to develop without human intervention.

On Monday, Agriculture Minister Barbara Otte-Kinast (CDU) and Environment Minister Olaf Lies (SPD) found out about the project that was implemented in connection with the “Lower Saxony Way”, as announced by the Agriculture Department.

Uslar - Agriculture, environmental protection associations and the state government agreed on more environmental and nature protection.

The state forests had previously mapped the area and recorded the biotopes, forest communities and species that existed there.

On this basis, a development plan was drawn up, spruce trees were removed and beech trees were planted.

Since the beginning of this year, the removal of hardwood has been dispensed with and paths have been dismantled.

"With the establishment of the wilderness area, we want to enable the migration of animals and plants that need movement corridors to preserve them," said Lies.

The country needs new trees: forest owners are calling for help

According to the Lower Saxony Nature Conservation Union (Nabu), the Solling is one of the most important habitats for beeches in Europe.

At least half of the beech stocks in this wilderness area are more than 150 years old.

However, it will be decades before the lack of human influence becomes apparent.

The development is scientifically accompanied by the Northwest German Forest Research Institute.
