OUR MISSION

Tree Icon   másolata.png

 

Today, we are using the equivalent of 1.6 Earths to sustain our lifestyles and many of the ecosystems on this planet are degrading.

One way to counteract this trend is ecological restoration - the process of reinstating natural processes, often by bringing back lost species into the landscape.

We are

  • introducing key elements of the ecosystems - trees  - thus writing by this the opening paragraph of a fascinating story

  • offering you the possibility to take part in this story - making a long- lasting positive impact on the natural world

 

OUR PROJECTS

Oak-Leaf- másolata.png

We are planting trees in state-of-the-art ecological restoration projects. 

Only native tree species are planted, the ones planted can be found in the close proximity of our planting sites.

The native plant species are the ecological basis upon which life depends. The insects that co-evolved with them feed the local birds and other animal species. The complex and resilient ecosystems sustain us.

 

Your trees will create far reaching positive cultural and ecological ripple effects.

Reintroduction of the oak (Quercus sp.) species into the Ciuc Basin 

We initiated the reintroduction of the oak (Quercus sp.) species into the Ciuc-basin. Until the 17th century, oaks were wide-spread here, but they disappeared due to anthropogenic causes.

After the growth of the trees, the small planted oak groves will function as eco-logical stepping stones: the propagules (acorns) of the planted trees will be spread by birds, helping the trees to slowly recolonize the abandoned agricultural lands nearby.

Bee-eaters grove

We are planting sessile oaks (Quercus petraea) and their companion species (maple, aspen, hawthorn a bit rowan) in a small sandmine.

Our scope is to create a forest/hedge based on the Miyawaki tiny-forest method to separate a breeding colony of bee-eaters (Merops apiaster)  from human  disturbance.

Restoration of wind damaged forests of the Hășmaș Mountains

We are planting beech (Fagus sylvatica), fir (Abies alba) (tree species that develop pivoting roots) and spruce (Picea abies) mixed forests in Cheile Bicazului-Hasmaș National Park on wind-damaged surfaces in order to increase the resistance of the newly formed forests to the effects of global climatic change.

Reforestation of a land surface at the foot of the Retezat Mountains(Geopark of Dinosaurs Ţara Haţegului)

We are  creating an experimental plan-tation using native, early-successional (pioneer) tree species for the reforestation of degraded clay hill.

The species we are going to plant in 2022: Birch (Betula pendula) and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris).

Restoration of wood-pastures in Transylvania

Wood-pastures (pastures with scattered trees) are ecologically and culturally valuable landscapes formed mainly in the Middle Ages. 

The trees in a wood pasture are keystone structures – they serve as biodiversity hotspots. They provide habitat for a number of bat and bird species, lichens, fungi, and invertebrates. 

These habitats are in decline due to the changes in agricultural practices.

In the planting seasons Spring 2022 / Autumn 2022 we will plant sessile oak seedlings

(Quercus petraea) with the Conservation Carpathia Foundation on an area near the village of Cobor (Sibiu County).

OUR SERVICES

Tree Icon   másolata.png

Planting trees is a symbolic act with positive practical benefits to the planet that will last for generations and an important contribution to ecological restoration projects.

 

We can plant trees for you whether you represent a company, an institution or as an individual and will inform you about the fate of your tree seedlings in the following years so you can see the positive impact your contribution makes. The whole story of the young trees.

We also produce and sell in our gift shop merchandise that can serve as memento for the planted tree seedlings.

 

 

Planting with us means :

 

1. Your trees will be planted as part of ecological restoration projects -

their benefits will exceed the simple fact of tree planting

 

2. You / the persons to whom you've gifted trees will receive information about the planting event -

you are welcomed to join us personally at the planting events

 

3. You / the persons to whom you've gifted trees can register the tree seedling on our platform- choose the preferred planting project and receive the location of the tree and a photograph of the planted tree seedlings

4. You / the persons to whom you've gifted trees will receive news about the projects in every season of the year

 

Please contact us for personalised corporate planting solutions or visit our online shop to plant some trees.
