In literature, the Basedow forest district is considered one of the most important areas of occurrence of fallow deer in the Federal Republic of Germany, with decades old main rutting grounds. The care, preservation and game shooting of the entire stock of wild animals is handled by us personally.

Within the scope of the complete recompilation of the inventory (Forest Management Planning 2006) of the Basedow forest measuring almost 600ha, the National Archives were specifically consulted as a reference to stay true to tradition and reuse old names of the forest districts (Saupark, Hahnenhop and Fischerhütten).

With a sustainable annual felling of 3600 cubic-m(fm) solid measure of timber, the Basedow forest is the main district of our family estate and the chief producer of numerous types of timber.

Due to the setting of the district in the area of the "Mecklenburgische Schweiz Nature Park" and its unique natural beauty, some parts of the district are located in the ringfenced NATURA 2000 area.


In our sustainable Forest Management, we pay particular Attention to the Protection of Biodiversity. In special recognition for this, we received the Wildlife Estate Label recognized by the EU Commission with the European Landowner Organisation in 2020.

In addition, the district comprises a range of archaeological monuments.
To this day, the "Saupark" area contains features of a Bronze Age refuge and can only be used for forestry to a limited degree.


Along with the purely forestry-related administration on our Wolfskuhlenhof estate, we devote a great deal of attention to development potentials in the district for future infrastructure opportunities.
the backlog of pathway construction measures
 the approval of forest seed stocks
preventative forest fire protection
 the protection and development of shorelines
we also consider local tourism potentials.

For a number of years, we have seen the necessity in the area of private forestry in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania to refocus on the relevant market structure of our timber buyers.
As a co-market player, we joined forces with friendly private forest owners in the Müritz region to establish the Forstbetriebsgemeinschaft (FBG) MORIZANER w.V. ,to improve the timber supply structure in a joint initiative.
