Cover: Close-to-nature managed forest in Basadingen, Canton of Thurgau, Switzerland. This young, naturally
regenerated spruce will grow slowly for decades in the waiting room until parent trees are harvested. In the
additional light it will then develop its crown to become a giant like the tree behind it. C. Küchli.
