Switzerland got one of the most effective forestry laws in Europe. This law is from 1902 and because during the 1800s large numbers of
trees and forests was cut down, this caused floods and much damage. The law is about replanting and this interesting. I found some information about this law on the internet and it was revised in 1991.
I did mention this law even if it is not so much related to the Walnut tree, or maybe it is so I will talk some on the Walnut below:
I found some interesting information on the use of Walnut
as food and medicine. Also take a look at my United Woods gallery and read some on Walnut and the other special wood materials from the world.
It is interesting to read about the all the varieties
of walnuts and the uses, the leaves was used for medicine, picked and dried in June. The use of tea can be effective for inflamed mucosa and more.
This is interesting since I have read on the uses
of trees for medicine here in Norway. The use of the whole tree is an ancient tradition.
A proper cultivation of a forest and landscape is a very important part for the human race, I remember growing
up and at school we were thought about the rains-forests and forests in the world being cut down. This causes nature catastrophes and much damage for the world’s environment. Not to forget the air we breathe.
In 2010 I found some interesting information on Walnut:
The Project Nut-Village Frümsen is about reforestation/planting and the cultivation of Walnuts. I recommend reading on
it on the internet.
Then I found another article about Saving
Ancient Walnut Forests, in the Valleys of Central Asia. “The former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan is home to some of the world’s largest remaining forests of walnut and wild fruit trees” This article is in the Yale environment 360 and talks
about Swiss Government funds and about the cultivation and protection of this forests. This article mentions the people living there and helping them.
KIRFOR was launched in 1995
