Wär die Arbeit mit dem Wald nicht mein Beruf, so wär sie mein Hobby


To work with trees is my life. I was born in 1964 in the city of Bonn/Germany, studied forestry and spent over twenty years as a civil servant in the forestry commission. I gave up my job because I wanted to put my ideas of ecology into practice, and I now run an environmentally friendly municipal piece of woodland in the village of Wershofen. I hold lectures and seminars and have written books on subjects pertaining to woodlands and nature protection so you can accompany me through the forests of my homeland and the whole world.
