This thesis elaborates the essentials for a silvicutural concept for the „Privatwaldgemeinschaft Oberammergau“, a private forest company in the bavarian alps, managing an area of 1800 ha. A silvicultural goal system was developed in close cooperation with the decision-making comitee of the Privatwaldgemeinschaft. Subsequent the goals were analysed in ArcGIS© regarding their areal relevance using a wide range of geodata and leading to a goal type map. According to this analysis the most important goal is the protection against natural risks and nature conservation (69,1% of the area). On 61,8% of the area the recreational use of forests is highly relevant. 53% of the area are important for a sustainable production of wood. The goal „minimisation of risks against calamites“ is higly relevant on 46% of the area. Using the goal type map, two demonstration stands were selected. In those stands all goals were considered as relevant. Field surveys were made in those stands to examine the fulfillment of the forest functions in the stands according to the considered goals. Using the evaluation of the field surveys a specific need for action, referring to the two stands was compiled. Based on this, different management prescriptions for the two stands were discussed. Another result of analysing the geodata is the mapping of the so called „leading forest type“. Based on the „WINALPecobase“, the prevailing forest type for each stand was identified and determined. Referring to the goal type map and the forest type map, different types of growing-stock objectives were developed. Those were used for the silvicultural recommendations in the two demonstration stands. Furthermore, the sustainable annual cut was determined by comparing the annual cut with the realised felling. Also the situation of forest accessibility has been investigated.
