Tree felling and Tree care

Tree fellings are the greatest danger for bats. Bats lower their body temperature from while sleeping, so in case of emergency they can not fly away like a bird. It takes about 5 to 10 minutes before they brought their bodies to air temperature in winter sleep it takes even longer. Thus, they have no chance to escape from a tree felling. Often animals are cut alive, splints penetrate deep into their bodies, there are bruising and fractures. If help from experts isnot available, hundreds of bats are killed due to the tree felling. Our urgent request: Before you cut down a tree (or let it make), please let experts check the tree for holes and examine them with an endoscope. The same applies to larger tree care measures, because there holes for bats are in thicker branches, too. Please, click here for further information. 

Bats are not just in thick trees!

Large caves can also be found at the bottom of tree trunks. Here you can see a felled trunk foot cave. In this case, the tree had to be felled due to traffic safety. The tree was examined in a faunistic manner before it was felled. No bats were harmed.

Artificial quarters can not replace nature

The preservation and creation of quarters is one of the most important tasks. Please note, that the artificial quarters are not a substitute for natural quarters, but merely serve as a supplement. The preservation of natural quarters is therefore still of great importance!    

Trees - old = new?

In the photo you can see a cross section through a tree. Below you can see still the hole where bats had access to her former home ... Here you can clearly see that an old tree cannot just replaced by a new one. Until a young tree can be an adequate substitute accommodation for animals, it takes several decades...
