Area situated between the spruce forest plateau of the highland forests and the succession area
The originally sampled highland spruce forest at 1,200 to 1,300 metres altitude were largely destroyed by the bark beetle (mainly Ips typographus) in the 1990s. It is assumed that this was a consequence of the climate warming.
Individual spruces which had survived the bark beetle infestation were destroyed by windthrow. The sampling site for spruce now covers the remnant trees and new grown areas from the 1940s which are slowly growing together by natural succession.
