Kalkalpen National Park - Wild Ditch - Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe

Reichraming, Austria
08.06.2019

This transboundary property stretches over 12 countries. Since the end of the last Ice Age, European Beech spread from a few isolated refuge areas in the Alps, Carpathians, Dinarides, Mediterranean and Pyrenees over a short period of a few thousand years in a process that is still ongoing. The successful expansion across a whole continent is related to the tree’s adaptability and tolerance of different climatic, geographical and physical conditions.
