This culture: Excursions in the middle ages invitation to a trip to the middle ages? Duderstadt of the 850-year-old town hall is the oldest in German-speaking countries. Rests in the city archives the birth certificate of Duderstadt, was dated in the years 927. settled 5000 years ago the landscape in northeastern of Germany.
The small town in the Eastern Lower Saxony has never experienced war times. Their streets are the image of a quiet slow growth. Hardly a stiletto is missing. Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, everything is next to each other, connected only by the architecture of the Lower Saxony half-timbered building.
The Federal Republic to end is at the gates of the city. The line of demarcation Duderstadt has lost half of its natural hinterland in the GDR. Since then fighting the small town, supported by State and federal, against the consequences of its border location: low economic growth, migration of the population. Hopes put the Duderstädter on the border between the two German States recently agreed.
To preserve jobs and to create new is necessary here as elsewhere. Resident companies receive Government grants. The settlement will ease foreign companies favourable conditions. An orthopedics company is one of the companies with regional importance now.
The Duderstädter are no exuberant breed of cat. They are considered sober and critical: properties that can help others more than some people insist the future. And the masters. feel that they still have their old city anthem must, whose refrain is: "We faithfully and firmly hold together!"
This technique: economic factor wooden acorns gather - long forgotten pastime from childhood days. While the small hard fruits of the oak used as before: today of less to the pig as for the new seeding of trees and forests. Motorized tree shakers today get the Acorn crop.
Automated harvesting means not only economic efficiency but also more quality that professionals can better control the quality of the harvest in this way. And only first-class acorns are used for sowing, for here too the biological principle applies: only good seed bringeth forth good fruit - in this case again oak, which reveal her later form several months later as a mini trees. Growth, which takes centuries.
E must go faster when large areas should - be afforested about after the storm disaster years three ago, when the storm uprooted entire forests. Without even then reached mechanization of forestry, vast tracts of land would have turned into jungles. The million cubic meters waste wood could be processed only with powerful special machines. Trees are like today, big pine, which like flowers, cut, transported and be - pushed all-in-one step in the processing machines.
Hardly an industry has transformed itself so in the last decade such as forestry. Machines have almost completely displaced the lumberjacks of yesteryear. A development that was long overdue. Because the forest became a losing proposition. Only through mechanization of forestry, the forests can be used in economic terms and for the population as a recreational space.
Economy wood. For example, the venerable cedar. It is for pencils manufactured in boards broken down, is the exotic tree through a confusing variety of machines being hunted. First devices milling grooves in the wood and fill them with glue. The second half of the wood pressed after inserting the pins: the pencil blank is done.
Also in the finishing moves the stylus from one machine to another. One grinds that paints next, another stamped serial number and specification of the hardness level of writing mine.
Ready for dispatch: the pencil, despite pen still a universal writer.
