There are some old stumps although not visible in the photos. The area has been managed in the past but now it is protected as a nature reserve. Its extent is only 5.6 ha (14 acres).
Waldherr discusses in his paper how the reserve should be managed in the future. His opinion is the area should be conserved as a ash-oak stand and beech should be removed, for esthetic reasons. I hope they leave it untouched.
Kouta, is there an English version of Waldherr's paper?
