Die 200-jährige Fichte

Die 200-jährige Fichte
The 34.5 m tall spruce is particularly high for its age at this altitude. She was able to grow so fast because she is quite free and has a lot of space around her.


On the basis of the tree ring picture, it can be seen that growth stagnated only between 1950 and 1962. This may indicate a dry season or damage, e.B. by insect infestation. As a frugal tree species with shallow roots, the spruce could settle here on the slope debris with sandy soil and many large stone blocks. By the way, it is the most common tree species in Switzerland, the canton of Graubünden and the municipality of Ferrera. In Ferrera, in addition to the spruce, a few larches, pines and pine trees form the tree population.
