Abstract Forests are one of the formative landscape elements in the Alps where almost half (45.5%) of the area is covered by woodland. Consequently the Alps rank among the most densely forested regions in Europe. Woodland areas in the Alps are increasing slowly but continuously, particularly in areas where traditional agricultural uses have been abandoned. In many cases this happens to the detriment of traditional cultural landscapes that are often rich in species.
