The two main conflicts in "The Interlopers" are interconnected in ironic ways. First of all, the long-standing conflict that exists between the two men, Ulrich and Georg, takes the form of a bitter family feud over issues of land and ownership. The second conflict is between the two men and the wolves who appear on the horizon, a manifestation of nature.
These two conflicts, the first involving man v. man and the second involving man v. nature, are related in their pointlessness. Ulrich and Georg are involved in a terrible argument that has nothing to do with their own personal preferences; the conflict originated years before they ever got involved, and so their continuation of the conflict is unnecessary. When the two men become trapped by the tree, another manifestation of nature, they reconcile, but their reconciliation comes too late; the wolves are sure to kill them, which makes even their mutual forgiveness pointless because their families will never learn of their peacemaking.
The conflicts are certainly resolved, but the resolutions are far from satisfactory. The men forgive each other and resolve their conflict interpersonally, just in time for nature to take control and render the men's resolution insignificant.
