The forests in the Lötschental have suffered greatly in recent winters. Due to the limited finances in the forestry sector, the funds have been slashed dramatically. That is why the forest construction projects are limited to the so-called 'protected forests'. Sot htose forrests which directly serve for the protection of settlements and transport modes. All other projects are no longer supported.
To counter this negative development, the project "A tree for the Lötschental" was initiated together with the forest district Lötschental. By purchasing a casket for 48.00 CHF ia young larch tree is planted in the Lötschental.
