Beautiful parts of the Hohe Tauern area:

Deceptive idyll:
On the drive to the Hohe Tauern area, we saw many freshly cleared slopes and hardly any dedicated re-forestation. Even very steep slopes were cleared making avalanches in the winter and landslides/slope slides in the summer inevitable – a man-made catastrophe!



From local TV news, I gathered that a dedicated re-forestation plan was being considered! It appears that the huge clearances are causing concern even to the local authorities!

TIP: More forests provide increased security and health for the population!
Healthy forests attract more tourists and employment opportunities!

TIP: Pay attention to the quality of life of future generations! Don’t forget our children and grandchildren!
