Suppression of negative effect of forest management

As a result of forestry and natural regeneration of vegetation, dense forests of pine, spruce and other trees occurs on some parts of both sites. These dense parts were thinned during this project. Some of the felled trees were left in place for the development of insects on both SCI areas. In contrast to project proposal, we decided not to cut juvenile trees in the parts with south exposition to enhance survival of Minuartia seedlings in the future years.

Tree cutting and shrubs removal was implemented on total area 15.9 ha.

Photos from action are available here.


The canopy openness was enhanced mainly on flat sites. The most intensive forest lightening was implemented on part B1, where canopy openness increased about 13%.
