When I walked this ridge path for the first time in 2013/14, I was almost thrilled by the beautiful, tall, dense beech forest.
In the meantime this forest is reminiscent of a theater of war in nature in some places; want to say how bombed are the tree ruins and the stumps on the slope.
Thinned out of the forest, the remaining beech trees, abandoned by the group of trees, which still defy the adversities, stand here and there with badly torn, sun-torn bark under sad residual crowns.
Adequate to this disaster, the last, also destroyed signs of the former forest nature trail are in the bushes.The beech will probably leave its traditional place in our regions and have to settle further north.
In ten years we will be walking through birch coppices here, if we should be allowed to.
