Protection and care measures

Protective measures

In the area of individual protection, we offer dipping and brushing methods or mechanical methods such as protective spirals and wire trousers. For fencing as an area protection measure, you can choose from our range of fixed fences, scissor fences or horde fences. Likewise, your plants can receive additional packaging from us, such as fresh-keeping bags or coated paper bags.

Care measures

A planted crop is far from being considered secure. For this reason, we offer cultivation by hand or by machine. We discuss the optimal time during the year individually with the respective forest owners.
