Protection Forest project

Approximately 45 per cent of the forest area in Switzerland consists of protection forests. As "green" life insurance on steep slopes, they keep avalanches, landslides and falling rocks away from settlements and transport routes. They protect the lives and possessions of many people.

Protection Forest project

In cooperation with cantonal forest rangers, Helvetia supports (re)forestation and protection forest maintenance with the Protection Forest project. Approximately 135000 young trees have been planted in Switzerland since 2011.
