Abstract

Alpine protective forests are vital to people living and working in alpine valleys. A protective forest must be protect reliably and continuously ; it also must be able to maintain its structure and vitality in the face of internal and external influences. Any intervention to improve a protective forest must be acceptable (minimal tending) rather than ideal because of costs : stability should be ensured for 20 to 50 years hence. This case study of the Ban de Ville forest found only a third of it was acceptably stable. Authors recommend ways to improve that forest. - (SLD)
