“Bongerten” action plan

Orchard meadows (bongerten) are not only a typical feature of the landscape in the Mëllerdall Nature Park, they also have high nature conservation significance as a habitat for many rare animal and plant species. The Mëllerdall Nature Park helps to conserve the bongerten stocks in the region. The following projects are being implemented as part of the Bongert Action Plan:

  • Recording the diverse varieties of fruits in the Mëllerdall Nature Park
  • Multiplying and planting rare fruit varieties typical of the region (“conservation orchards”)
  • Planting of young and pruning of old fruit trees to preserve the orchard meadow stocks
