Bocholt trees crave for water

From BERTHOLD BLESENKEMPERDem German forest is (again) bad. This picture was drawn by Heinz Kowalski, Deputy National Chairman of the NABU NRW, during his lecture at Stadtsparkasse. Two periods of drought in the past two summers made the trees hard to deal with. Correspondingly hard it hit the forest farmers. One solution could, according to Kowalski, be the so-called contract nature conservation. The owners would then no longer be paid by the timber industry for the felling and delivery of trees, but by the state for the maintenance of a forest as natural as possible. The speaker had accepted an invitation from the BÜRGERFORUM REGIONAL of the Bürgerstiftung Bocholt and described the situation in Germany. Rolf Souilljee from local NABU then responded to the Bocholt situation. By the two hot summers with an almost 50 percent reduced rainfall here and there quite deficiencies can be seen. But still the damage picture is limited, he said. The city is trying to counteract the enlargement of root areas, regular watering and water bags on the trees. But she can not do it alone. "The citizens have to help," said the expert. Criticism from the public at the green space office, it is not planted enough, dismissed Peter Schlabs of the Department of civil engineering, traffic, urban green and the environment. Downy trees would always be replaced. And for the jubilee year 2022, the city plans to plant 800 additional trees, it said. Furthermore, he referred to the support program for ecologically valuable trees. To the Citizens' Forum: The CIVIL FORUM REGIONAL is one of the projects of the Bürgerstiftung Bocholt.
