Tips

  • Michael-im-Flow

    A visit to the Staatsforst Burgholz in Wuppertal with its unique arboretum (planting of various trees from all over the world for study purposes) is always worthwhile. With an area of around 250 hectares and around 100 different deciduous and coniferous tree species from almost every continent in the world, it is the largest cultivation area with foreign tree species in Germany. There are many different hiking trails and / or MTB or gravel bike trails with a very demanding character (please drive cautiously and show mutual consideration!), Which always give you a new impression. What else can I say, best experience it ;-)))

    Staatsforst Burgholz is a forest area known for its nationwide unique arboretum, in which forest science studies are carried out, in which an ecological interlocking of foreign wood with native species takes place. This was achieved by planting the foreign tree species (including sequoia trees) within the local woody plants at the beginning of the 70s.

    Mermirising part of the forest, pictures don't capture the feeling of walking among these giant trees, Considering these trees live for 500+ years on average and they were planted in beginning of 1900s makes you wonder how young this forest is.!

    I can't resist and I have to quote the incomparable humorist Heinz Erhardt (1909 - 1979), who was known to a wide audience for his wit and "Noch'n poem", with a short quatrain:
    "Trees, trees, nothing but trees,
    and in between - spaces.
    But behind it, you can hardly believe it:
    Another tree!"
    (H.Erhardt)
