the forests on our Wolfskuhlenhof estate effectively
and with a view to sustainability continues to be an
extremely challenging undertaking due to their specific
location and its historical circumstances on the fringes
of the Ruhr area.
To this day, keeping a balanced age structure in our
relatively small structured forest land (approx. 30ha)
to ensure sustainability proves difficult in the aftermath
of random fellings during the war to meet the requirement
of firewood and due to shell splinters as well as natural
and environmental damage (wind breakage and damage due
has been a tradition practiced for many generations
in our family in the management and cultivation
of our estate in harmony with nature. For us it
is more than a newfangled trend.
Consequently, we endeavour to promote and maintain
forest growth, our forest areas and their effective
cultivation with a view to sustainability. The aim
of our principles at Wolfskuhlen is first and foremost
to care for and maintain forest land and young trees,
and thus to meet the local demand for small dimensioned
wood and different types of firewood.
Throughout the year, we take great pains to ensure
that we are in a position to provide you with oven-dry
wood for open fires from our Wolfskuhlenhof.

We will make the necessary
arrangements for you with the competent Untere Landschaftsbehörde
(Lower Landscape Authority - Wesel district) and offer
a number of compensation commitments.

At the same time, we hope
to increase our forest holding at the Wolfskuhlen development
area on the Lower Rhine.
