Helvetia's protection forest campaign

Whether we are travelling in a car, or hiking or skiing, we often underestimate how much forests contribute to our safety. Protection forests are planted especially to protect us from four key threats: rockfall, landslides, mudslides and avalanches.
Together we make Switzerland safer
Protection forests protect people, buildings, hiking paths and transport routes from elemental damage. Helvetia – in collaboration with the cantonal forestry services – supports the planting of protection forests throughout Switzerland.
