Protected landscape component Naßwiese in the upper reaches of the Waldbach valley
The protected landscape component Naßwiese in the upper reaches of the Waldbachtal with an area of 0.7 hectares is 350 m northwest of the hamlet of Gehren (Sundern) in the southern urban area of Sundern . The area was designated as a protected landscape component (LB) in 1993 with the Sundern landscape plan by the district council of the Hochsauerlandkreis . The LB is on Laurenziusbach. The landscape plan located the LB incorrectly at the forest stream .
It was a tall herbaceous field on the meandering Laurenziusbach, a tributary of the Waldbach . The LB is about 30 m wide and 300 m long. The Sundern landscape plan explains the LB Naßwiese in the upper reaches of the Waldbachtal : "... high structural diversity, high biodiversity and valuable for amphibians."
The Sundern landscape plan explains the protected landscape elements: “All protected landscape elements are culturally accentuated or near-natural landscape elements which, with their independent character, clearly differ from the surrounding forest and field landscape. The special protection of these small structures is necessary because of their prominent position for the efficiency of the natural balance and / or for the attractiveness of the landscape. The LB determination takes into account the landscape significance of the objects, which it sets out above the "normal" landscape inventory of a landscape protection area . "
Prohibitions and Commandments
As with all protected landscape components, according to Section 29 (2) BNatschG, it is prohibited to damage, uproot, excavate or separate parts of it or otherwise impair its growth or appearance. Proper care is exempt from the ban. It is also forbidden to attach, store, deposit, discharge or otherwise dispose of substances or objects in the area of the protected landscape element that could endanger or impair the appearance or the existence of the protected landscape element. This also applies to organic or mineral fertilizers and animal feed. Grazing of the LB was also prohibited.
The commandments were set to remove emerging woody plants and to mow the tall herbaceous fields every three years and remove the clippings in the process.
