Florian Steiner - The forest specialist
Forester and forest supervisor in Scheffau
After the deluge, the sky opens up again, the paths are soon dry and everyone can return to their excursions quickly. Where did all the water go? In town, everything would have long floated away. The forest, however, has taken up the water like a sponge – a single grown fir alone can store up to 3000 litres water in its crown.Florian Steiner can often be found out in the forest. As forest supervisor, he is in charge of reforestation, i.e. planting new trees. Today, we are returning to mixed forests, which among others, serve the important role of water storage. He is also responsible for caring for wild brooks, i.e. continually checking that brooks are not blocked by fallen trees or other objects. In a deluge as mentioned, this could have disastrous consequences."When water flows over three stones, it's clean again." You can see that his profession is a vocation as well when you meet him in the forest. He will gladly answer various questions and give you insights into the life in nature – and offer some sayings that you will remember.
