The Federal Conference 2020 was cancelled due to the corona pandemic. The new date for the federal conference is 09-11 September 2021
The project "Silver Fir 2. 0" was approved for a period from 01.02.2020 to 31.12.2022. Its aim is to colonise new areas outside their natural range with silver fir as a climate-tolerant mixed tree species. The factors of origin, assortments, hunting, plant procurement and regional organisation of the practical implementation play a central role in this context.
The ANW is intensively involved at the level of the Federal Republic of Germany in a fundamental reorientation of the Federal Hunting Law. Hunting must be made jointly responsible for the success of forest conversion. The balance between forest and game must be achieved through close cooperation between forest ownership and hunting so that mixed forests can develop without protection. The attached position paper of the German Forestry Council on "Hunting" is a first success.
