About this book

Language: German

With some 11,500,000 hectares, forest covers about one third of Germany. In a highly entertaining and distinguished fashion, Detlev Arens shows the reader Germany's forest in all its diversity. He presents the various species – especially the beech woods – visits the large forest areas and national parks, and shows the forest borders with fields, water and mountains.

Detlev Arens tells of the forest use over the centuries, the timber trade and the great times of rafting, of the discovery of sustainability, but also of deforestation in the 1980s. Finally, it highlights the important role of the German forest in literature, music and visual arts.

This splendid volume covers the wealth and the rich diversity of the German forest. Over 400 colour illustrations, graphs and maps accompany the reader on this walk, which also looks ahread to some extent in the future.

Summary in German:
Mit gut 11.500.000 Hektar bedeckt der Wald rund ein Drittel unserer Heimat. Anschaulich und unterhaltsam zeichnet Detlev Arens unseren Wald in seiner ganzen Vielfalt. Er stellt die verschiedenen Arten – allen voran die Buchenwälder – vor, besucht die großen Waldgebiete und Nationalparks und zeigt dem Wald an Feld, Wasser und Gebirge seine Grenzen auf.

Detlev Arens erzählt von der Waldnutzung im Laufe der Jahrhunderte, vom Holzhandel und den großen Zeiten der Flößerei, von der Entdeckung der Nachhaltigkeit, aber auch vom Waldsterben in den 1980er-Jahren. Nicht zuletzt hebt er die bedeutende Rolle des deutschen Waldes in Literatur, Musik und bildender Kunst hervor.

Dieser prachtvolle Band entdeckt die Fülle und den Facettenreichtum des deutschen Waldes immer wieder neu. Mehr als 400 farbige Abbildungen, Grafiken und Karten begleitend den Leser auf diesem Spaziergang, der auch ein Stück weit in die Zukunft ragt.
