German term or phrase: Erd-Luftbereich
Einen zusätzlichen Schutz erreichen Sie, wenn Sie nach dem Betonieren einen Streifen grobkörnige Dachpappe um den Stamm fixieren (ab Oberkante Fundament bis über Niveau Spielebene), da im Erd-Luftbereich die kritische Zone der Fäulnisbildung bei allen Holzarten liegt. Text talking about protecting wood from rotting but how would you translate the critical zone described?
