Austria’s forests

Almost half of Austria’s federal territory is covered by forests. Forests offer us space for recreation, supply us with the environmentally friendly energy sources, such as wood, and protect us against natural hazards like avalanches. By sequestering CO2 they help mitigate the effects of climate change, and can also purify spring water through the filtration of minerals and nutrients in their roots.
