On Friday, 28th May, Life Terra together with the local partner Stift Ehreshoven officially inaugurated the first “Klimawald” pilot project in Germany. Around 19,500 saplings of Spanish provenance were planted in March 2021 and are taking root, doing very well after the first 2 rainy months.
During the event itself there was a symbolic planting for which the local nursery provided a northern red oak tree and Life Terra demonstrated the tree tagging technology. A new overview board at the reforested area gives information about the cooperation, which was realised also through financial support from One Tree Planted. Amongst the small group of attendees were the local mayor Dr. Gero Karthaus and the German forestry legend Wulff Böhmcker who both expressed their hopes and expectations for such promising climate-resilient forest areas.
