Prince of Liechtenstein Foundation Receives Award

Prince Constantin received Austria's National Award for Exemplary Forest Management 2017 and the first ever State Prize for Best Climate Forest Management (Staatspreis für beispielhafte Waldbewirtschaftung) on behalf of the Prince of Liechtenstein Foundation. The national prize is given annually by the Ministry of Environment.

The Foundation cultivates 3,150 hectares of forest in the region. The Hohenau areas were acquired in 1457. One of the reasons for the award was the Foundation's strong commitment to nature conservation. Additionally, the forest contains a "remarkable" distribution of deciduous tree species with just 11 percent of the forest being coniferous. The forest also has a well managed an important set of flood planes.
