under climate pressure.
The forest is a treasure trove of knowledge and an important tool for combating climate change, and it is endangered worldwide. Even in Germany, where the area of forest is on the increase, tree death on a massive scale can be observed. Views differ on the reasons for it. Is it because of the shift in climate cycles, poor soil or lack of species diversity? Some experts argue for the forests to be left to run wild, while others see a higher diversity of species and a stable stock level in commercially managed forests.
