Donation volume: The project volume in 2021 was €40,000, funded by The HELPING PEOPLE Foundation and Gutsmiedl Naturprodukte GmbH. With this amount, it was possible to plant 5000 trees in Germany and guarantee the aftercare for 99 years.
Organisations involved: PLANT-MY-TREE, a foundation from Germany with 30 years of experience in reforestation projects.
All people in Germany
The forest dieback in Harz moves us. It is close to home; so, in recent years, we have witnessed the negative change caused by storms, the bark beetle and monoculture.
Trees and forests are of high importance for the climate; they absorb CO2, release oxygen and contribute to keeping the earth’s temperatures stable. Forests promote biodiversity by providing a habitat for numerous plants and animals.
Every tree is important, even if it has to grow for at least 10 years before it absorbs CO². A tree is an investment in the future!
The donors are offered reforestation areas all over Germany. They can carry out planting campaigns themselves. PLANT-MY-TREE takes over the entire organisation: From purchasing plants, to staff acquisition, agreements with the forestry office and the aftercare of the trees for at least 99 years.
- Long-term storage of Co²
