Forester Wulf Böhmcker, 92, started with trees as a young student and still keeps himself busy with trees. He planted a tree only a few days before speaking to LifeTerra. Böhmcker said,“Trees, nature and forests are my life. And I am very concerned about the people who are losing their forest.” Scroll down for his words of wisdom.
92-yo Wulf Böhmcker from Hesse, Germany, has been active in forestry for the past 70 years and is still busy today. “Yesterday I drove 300km to get here and basically only through/past damaged forests.

LIFE TERRA: 500 MILLION TREES BY 2025
Life Terra is a foundation with a mission to enable people to take impactful climate action now. They facilitate tree planting, educate future generations, and develop tree monitoring technology.
Life Terra is founded on the knowledge that tree planting is regarded as the most cost-effective nature-based solution to capture carbon. As part of a multi-faceted mitigation strategy, planting trees can play an important role in the fight against climate change and the devastation it causes (heat waves, drought, forest loss, desertification, erosion, flooding).
Life Terra seeks to bring people together to plant 500 million trees in 5 years, harnessing and monitoring nature’s own carbon capture mechanism and enabling citizens to take urgent action against the climate crisis.
