The targeted management of forests can enable the CO2 store to be increased naturally over the years: The Frenktäler forest climate protection project in Canton Basel-Landschaft manages the forest in such a way that wood supplies can be increased continuously from 368 to 389 m3/ha by 2050. This increase will enable an estimated 900 tonnes of CO2 to be stored annually. A decision to avoid a planned reduction will mean that an additional 1,850 tonnes of CO2 will remain stored. This results in the availability of a total of 2,750 certificates of one tonne of CO2 each.
The Frenktäler forest division currently actively manages 1,076ha and leaves 170ha to nature. The forest is composed of about 60 per cent deciduous trees and 40 per cent conifers, and the forest areas are FSC- and PEFC-certified.
