beginnings of our family forestry in its 5th generation
lie in the Schwabenberg estate. This is situated in
the Hochsauerlandkreis between the towns of Elpe, Ramsbeck
and Heinrichsdorf, with one of the highest elevations
in the Sauerland, the "Steinmarkskopf" at
an altitude of 720m above sea level.
is characterised by many steep slopes with a multitude
of springs and wet valleys. The Schwabenberg forest
is certified according to PEFC. Due to its exposed
location, the forest district is constantly at the
mercy of different natural catastrophes.
by Lothar, Wibke, Kyrill or Emma - the various low-pressure
systems mentioned here by name - the Schwabenberg
forest constantly recovered in its laborious efforts
of cultivation and natural regeneration.
Thus in our almost perfectly developed forest estate
measuring 255ha and a sustainable annual felling
averaging 1136 cubic-m(fm) solid measure of timber,
virtually all of the storm damaged wood could be
processed and sold. How the storm calamities (8-year
felling) will affect the future cannot as yet be
assessed 13 year after Kyrill.
to plenty of rainfalls and primitive limy shale
rock, the district has enormous potential of natural
regeneration of pine and beech. Success here is
guaranteed all the more because of our cooperation
with our game tenant for over 10 years now.
