Old-Growth Forests - Life Prognoses

Research in Romanian Boia Mica Valley

Large forest wilderness areas are a condition of our survival on Earth, but also a source of important knowledge for humankind. Our team works in most spectacular wilderness areas of temperate Europe. Our aims are to improve their understanding, increase public awareness about their importance and help to save them for future generations.

Storage of CO2 in the forests

Carbon emitted from the forest creates a problem for us in the atmosphere by changing the climate. Carbon stored in the forest is safe. 1 ha of primary forest can store the annual carbon footprint of 250 Europeans. Ceasing logging in both old-growth and earlier stage forests is the most effective measure we have, to take CO2 from the atmosphere.
