There are not so many primeval woods in Europe anymore. And if there are, they are really small. And these are very important, because only in such forest the real nature cycle can occur. Only such forests are really sustainable. The biggest primeval woods in Europe lie in Ural mountain in Russia and in Finland. But even in Finland these are only about 4% of all woods. Germany set the aim to have at about 1% of so called avalanche forests. This is not much, but it’s still a good start.
Recently I’ve visited such forest at the Kaltenbronn area in Black Forest. It is a moor area at about 1000m. Here some photos from this beauty.
