Support for afforestation in Central Switzerland
The SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne is very pleased to support the Central Switzerlands project of the "Oberallmeindkorporation Schwyz" for the sustainable care, reforestation and management of the forest areas. The aim of the project is to promote the forest as a CO2 sink in addition to sustainable management and thus make a contribution to climate protection. With the help of our support, the average wood supply is increased from 280 to 300 m3 / ha within 30 years in a controlled manner.
