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.
Alpine protection forest award
Helvetia is an official partner of the alpine protection forest award of the consortium of alpine forestry associations (ARGE). Since 2006, excellent projects for maintaining and improving protection forests in the Alps have been awarded the prize every year. The award emphasises the importance of intact and sustainably managed protection forests.
