Planting was a great experience for me, I have acquired new knowledge about the forest. Have met nice people from all over Germany.” – Dani von Latrinia (Volunteer attending planting activities)

CONTEXT

Forestry in Germany has been dominated by single aged monocultures that are ecologically and economically unstable, making these forests prone to soil erosion, limited water retention rockfalls and avalanches as well as rapid spreading of pests and diseases.

Bergwaldprojekt is a professionally run organization, effectively managing complex volunteering programs over several locations across Germany. They advance the regional rejuvenation of state forests, which are mainly composed of single-aged monocultures (pine or spruce) that are ecologically and economically unstable.

Project Narrative

BENEFITSThrough tree planting, Bergwaldprojekt aims at increasing the resilience of these forests against climate change whilst promoting the ecosystem services provided by these habitats.The project aims at raising the awareness of the German population about the direct link between the well-being of humans and the well-being of nature in general, and forests in particular Local Partners: Bergwaldprojekt Association Bergwaldprojekt is an association created in 1986 by Mr. Wolfgang Lohbeck of Greenpeace Deutschland. Their objectives are the conservation, regeneration, and supervision of the healing of damaged German forests. They lead an average of 40 projects per year in 25 forests. They have a strong experience in involving the public in the plantations: since 1987, 20,000 volunteers have participated in their projects. Since 1987, more than 1 million trees have been planted by Bergwaldprojekt.
