Waldsterben: klimabedingt - Forest dieback: climate-induced

Waldsterben: klimabedingt - Forest dieback: climate-induced
Dieser Sommer war vor allem für Nadelbäume auf trockenen Standorten eine richtige Katastrophe. Fehlende Niederschläge und extreme Hitze brachten wie hier in einem Naturschutzgebiet bei Thüngersheim am Main serienweise die Kiefern (und andere Bäume) zum Absterben. Das gleiche Schicksal erleiden zur Zeit auch die Buchen im Forst. Wie wird es in der Zukunft weitergehen?

This summer was a real disaster especially for conifers on dry sites. Lack of precipitation and extreme heat caused the pines (and other trees) to die off in series, as here in a nature reserve near Thüngersheim am Main. The same fate is currently suffered by the beech trees in the forest. What will happen in the future?

Es ist traurig anzuschauen, wie große Waldflächen der Hitze und Trockenheit zum Opfer fallen.

Es ist schon schlimm genug, dass hier in Deutschland Wälder absterben, aber anderswo holzt man sie aus Profitgier ab!

*sigh* I'm so sorry to see this picture, but you did tell me of this terrible plight in your forests. I am sorry to say that the sight of dying forests is seen here as well. I didn't see anything bad up on Vancouver Island, I'm happy to say. Let's hope they are spared this tragedy.

All of the trees that have died...there's nothing to do about that. But perhaps there will be a positive change with climate change. People can do anything if they set their minds to it, and maybe some day we will all be involved in personally planting x numbers of trees where we live, to bring back our trees that have fallen.

The forests under the sea are in at least as much danger...the horror of what's going on down there is so bad. But they have learned how to breed colonies of corals and there is a little bit of hope.

Needless to say, it's going to get so bad before finally the world is forced to do something. Will it be too late as others here have asked...it's so hard to say, isn't it? We can only hope for the best.

Thank you very much for your comforting words.
From various comments on my pictures I have learned that the death of trees and forests is now taking place in many areas of the world, everywhere where summers have become too hot and too dry. Then, under these conditions, there are also the forest pests, which sometimes devour entire forest areas (bark beetles, gypsy moth). The German government is currently investigating how tree species from other regions of the world can be used to "combat" this new forest dieback.
But we must not lose sight of the fact that it is much more important to combat the causes of this forest extinction, namely climate change. The increase in temperature on our planet must (!) be slowed down, i.e. the cause of climate change, namely the carbon dioxide emissions of the industrialised countries, must be significantly reduced. Greta Thunberg warns us!

Da bin ich auch erschrocken, auf der Bahnfahrt nach Frankfurt Anfang September waren ganz viele Nadelbäume schon braun gefärbt -besonders im Leinetal zwischen Hannover und Göttingen überall zu sehen.
