The Jizerské smrčiny is a location of special natural habitat in the central part of the plateau of the Jizera Mountains. There are a number of specially protected and endangered species of plants and animals in the area. 

Due to a long period of cultivation of monocultural forests and often inappropriate farming methods rapid water run-off s are increasingly endangering the area. The project, supported
by VGP Foundation and led by the Ivan Dejmal Foundation for nature conservation, aims to cut unoriginal trees, plant new trees and build water retaining dams and baffles.
