"Il god da Tamangur" (the forest of Tamangur in the local language Romansh) is the highest extended forest of swiss pines (pinus cembra, Arve in German) in Europe. It lays high up at 2100 to 2300 m above sea level in the valley of S-charl, near Scuol in the Engadin. Today it is protected as a forest nature reserve covering 86 ha, and no trees nor dead wood may be removed. Due to the harsh climate trees grow very slowly here, but can get very old. Some of the trees in this forest are 700 years old.
