- Forester is my profession!
My hobbies are Hicking, explore the nature, mountain-climbing, woodcarving with chainsaw, skiing, snowshoe-hike,
To cut down once a real tree with the own strengt is a feeling you never knew. This day in the woods is an experience for your whole team, you won't forget easily. Learn about the hard work, maybee your grandfather was occupied.
And for climate change it is absolutly helpfull, to use our local wood for many contructions, instead of steel and concret. Here grow much more trees than we cut down.
So lets become a Lumberjack for a day !
