Herbertingen (dpa / lsw) - According to Forst Baden-Württemberg, wood from local forests contributes to climate protection. "A densely wooded state like Baden-Württemberg bears a special responsibility when it comes to its use of wood and climate protection," said Alfred Rupf, board member of the Baden-Württemberg State Forest Association on Wednesday. "Domestic wood with short transport routes protects the climate."
In Herbertingen (Sigmaringen district), Forst BW gave, among other things, an insight into the use of forest machines. The timber harvest begins every year in autumn. The employees of the country's largest forestry company, Forst BW, are responsible for more than 300,000 hectares of state forest, they cut down trees and prepare them for further processing.
