Abstract

Complaints about outstanding regulations on indemunification or compensation for forest damage caused by air pollution ofter overloock the fact that a whole row of remedial measures has already been initiatied. They also frequently show no appreciation of the difficulties involved in finding a new ruling for compensating and supportive measures that is both fair and practicable. The report outlines the field of the determination and valuation of damages in connection with forest damages caused by air pollution. The forest owners concerned receive considerable financial aid through a row of forest-political measures. Tax privileges pursuant to article 34b of the Income Tax Law lead to substantial tax relief in individual cases. The search for practicable rulings on compensation for damages has brought up the idea of treating the issue in a wider context. Besides the financial aspect, an ouverall assessment of forest damages caused by air pollution should also consider the diverse social functions of the forest. This widens the spectrum of forest -political concepts for compensation and support. A general search for ways of improving the economic situation of forest enterprises seems expedient. The growing debate about differentiated surface premiums as part of the forthcoming agricultural reform should be taken  More>>

[Deutsch] Klagen ueber eine noch ausstehende Entschaedigungs- oder Ausgleichsregelung fuer immissionsbedingte Waldschaeden lassen haeufig ausser Betracht, dass bereits eine ganze Reihe von Hilfsmassnahmen auf den Weg gebracht worden sind. Sie verkennen oft auch die Schwierigkeiten, die einer angemessenen und handhabbaren Neuregelung der Ausgleichs- und Foerdermahssnahmen entgegenstehen. Der Bericht umfasst den Bereich der Schadensermittlung und -bewertung im Zusammenhang mit den immissionsbedingten Waldschaeden. Daran anschliessend werden Ausgleichs- und Foerdermassnahmen skizziert. Den betroffenen Waldbesitzern fliessen ueber eine Reihe von forstpolitischen Massnahmen betraechtliche Mittel zu, ueber die Steurerverguenstigung nach Paragraph 34b EStG werden in Einzelfaellen erhebliche Steuerentlastungen wirksam. Auf der Suche nach handhabbaren Regelungen eines Schadensausgleiches stellt sich die Frage, nach einem breiteren Rahmen. Neben den betriebswirtschaftlichen Waldschaeden sind aus gesamtwirtschaftlicher Sicht die immissionsbedingten Schaeden fuer die vielfaeltigen Sozialfunktionen des Waldes in die Ueberlegungen mit einzubeziehen. Dabei erweitert sich auch das Spektrum fuer forstpolitische Ausgleichs- bzw. Foerderkonzepte. Es erscheint angebracht, generell nach Wegen zur Verbesserung der wirtschaftlichen Lage der Forstbetriebe zu suchen. Die sich verstaerkende Debatte um differenzierte Flaechenpraemien zugunsten der Landwirtschaft im Zuge einer bevorstehenden Reform der Agrarpolitik sollte Anlass sein, solche Ueberlegungen verstaerkt voranzutreiben.
