Forest owners have to take good care of their firewood in view of increasing energy prices. "Anyone who is careless and puts it on the forest road, split and dried, is already risking something," says the managing director of the Saarland forest owner association, Wolfgang Pester. In the past, too, wood has been stolen from time to time, "but now it is getting more difficult".

Many state forestry companies and forest owners now use so-called forest trackers to monitor the beaten wood. Word had also obviously got around among the long fingers that a satellite-based GPS station is often hidden in a stack of wood. As soon as this moves, it can be followed by the smartphone where it is. "Then you can quickly be convicted," says Pester.

Slime Rancher 2: All Gordo Locations

  Slime Rancher 2: All Gordo Locations As the player explores the diverse biomes within the regions of Rainbow Island in Slime Rancher 2, they can discover a total of thirteen Slime Gordos.Fortunately, the solution to removing Gordos in Slime Rancher 2 is simple. Beatrix must feed this creature the same food type preferred by its normal Slime variant. For example, Cotton Slimes of the Rainbow Fields love Veggies, which include Carrots, Heart Beets, Odd Onions, and Water Lettuce. Therefore, if the player encounters the Cotton Gordo on their journey, they must feed it any Veggie to satiate its hunger. When fed enough of its preferred food, the Gordo will burst, exposing the pathway it once covered.

But because the costs for firewood increase - from 60 to 70 euros per solid meter last year to up to 200 euros - many try to get it illegally. The forest owner association AGDW in Berlin speaks of damage in the millions.

"There is also wooden theft in Rhineland-Palatinate, but luckily not to a large scale," says Jan Budde, spokesman for the Ministry of Environment in Mainz. So far, only individual cases have been recorded in Saarland, but now paying special attention to the topic. "The phenomenon of thefts increases, especially in tight goods, we can see that in the forest," reports Sabine Schorr, spokeswoman for the Saarland Ministry of Environment. "Our forester currently gives indications that there are locally to individual thefts of firewood."

  Can Biden save democracy one US factory job at a time? WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is working to create a manufacturing revival — even helping to put factory jobs in Republican territory under the belief it can restore faith in U.S. democracy.

also existed. In addition, people would now be increasingly checked in the forest in the forest. The authority asks to provide information on suspicious persons or vehicles with specifying the place, the time and, if necessary, a license plate ([email protected]).

Budde draws attention to the fact that taking smaller quantities with us is also prohibited: "Wood is not like mushrooms or berries." For them, collecting in small household quantities - for a meal - is allowed. "However, this does not apply to wood."

collection certificates, which were previously officially acquired at offices and thus could supply themselves for their own needs, have long been no longer exhibited for Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland forests. "The submission of the so -called 'Raffscheine', officially 'reading certificates' was discontinued over 20 years ago," says Sabine Schorr. With the introduction of the natural forestry, it was deliberately decided to leave the residual wood in the forest that occurred during forest work so that it can rotten there. Because this not only creates habitat for insects and mammals, but also supplies nutrients to the forest floor.

"Totholz is a very important factor for biological pest control," says Bernd-Peter Räpple, a consultant for forestry in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. "The more dead wood we have, the more breed antagonists there who, for example, feed on the bark beetle." Whoever believes that dead wood is actually dead, crazy. "It is full of life, with mushrooms and small life and has a very high ecological aspect that we need for our forest health."

stronger wood is harvested and also sold on the paths. The dates would be made known to this in the official sheets, and interested parties could also report to the forester.

If you want to get wood with wood in Saarland in a legal way, you can buy firewood from the Saarforst. "The district leaders are the contact persons here," says Schorr. Or the private forest owners.

Budde indicates that there are also so -called “wood -drilling tickets” that are considered to be legitimized - also for firewood buyers. In Rhineland-Palatinate, the wood disposal is checked “sample”.

more than theft, Wolfgang Pester is annoyed by the forest owner association that the wood burning is also literally "demonized" by the EU and the nature conservation lobbiesite and that they are presented as not climate -friendly. "Everything we burn avoids burning oil," he emphasizes.

oven and fireplace owners, whose supplies are used up and who now want to stock up for the cold months, have to rethink: «Fresh wood still has to dry and should have under 25 percent wood moisture, otherwise it can be in Rhineland-Palatinate are not burned at all, »emphasizes Räpple. "Anyone who thinks they are still getting wood and can easily get over the winter, should have thought of it two years ago."
