Wuchshüllen stellen nach ihrer Zweckerfüllung in der Waldwirtschaft Abfall dar und sind nach abfall- und bodenschutzrechtlichen Vorschriften rückzubauen, vorrangig zu verwerten und nachrangig zu entsorgen. Wuchshüllen aus oxo-abbaubaren Kunststoffen dürfen nicht in Verkehr gebracht werden. Freiwillige Selbstverpflichtungen nach PEFC, FSC und Naturl...

Since the invention of treeshelters in Europe during the late 1970s new views on them have emerged. We identify critical challenges and propose new pathways towards a 'plastic-reduction strategy in forestry' by analysing available products on the European market, by raising questions on legal aspects at the end of their service life and by consider...

Obwohl in vielen Bereichen der Umweltnutzung der Verbleib von Plastik bereits diskutiert wird, gibt es noch keine kritische Bestandsaufnahme zu Wuchshüllen als wichtigstem, aber auch beispielhaftem Einsatzbereich von Plastik in der Forstwirtschaft. Mit einer jährlichen Neuausbringung im Millionenbereich und einer Rückbauquote von z. Zt. noch < 50 %...

Development of innovative and biodegradable treeshelters made of renewable resources & concepts to avoid plastic accumulation in the forest. Plastic products are under criticism for producing persistent particles in the environment. In forest estates throughout Germany tree shelters (abbr. TS, mostly made of PE, PP, HDPE, PVC) are amounting to a two-digit Million of newly installed items/y. Such plastic products play a significant role as many are not collected but often remain in the forest. In the future the use of tree species that are more resistant to the climate change however being rare and thus highly susceptible to browsing, the conversion of pure, even-aged into mixed and stable forests as well as low-cost reforestation after large-scale storm events will lead to an even higher need for TS in forestry. The project [TheForestCleanup] thus aims at both (A) constructing new and (B) removing of old TS from the forest. Requirements to innovative TS are: (1) made of renewable resources, (2) certified and fully biodegradable proven by test in labs and under real forest conditions, (3) at least as functional as classical TS and (4) finally with a better LCA compared to TS to date on the market. (A) A product challenge is organised where companies for extrusion and assembling of prototypes can apply. Laboratory tests, experimental plots on selected forest sites across Germany as well as advanced statistical analysis and finally LCA in feedback to the construction process will optimise a product immediately before series readiness. (B) Removal of old plastic TS will include setting up technical and socio-economic concepts followed by their implementation in forest estates. The framing conditions of TS are analysed at the whole country level considering the forest-people system comprehensively: drawing up a balance sheet (including disposal), costs, customer preferences, public & forestry-internal communication, legal aspects, government funding and rules for public procurement. Finally integrating forest stakeholders will ensure a successful innovation and improve turnover and employment in the forest-bioeconomy sector.
