Protecting and restoring forests is an effective way to sequester CO2 from the atmosphere, to meet the challenge of climate change and at the same time promote biodiversity and benefits to society.

 

As part of the first CBC - WE CARE Challenge in May, we CBC members did a lot for our health and together collected over 15.1 million steps. Through this strong community effort, a total of 40 trees will be planted. Our first challenge was a great success for the CBC members as well as for the environment. Many thanks for the great commitment!

Project Description

With the planting in November 2020, an area of approx. 1,500 sqm was replanted. Due to the past droughts, the site has been subject to heavy pest infestation (bark beetle). The severe damage caused by the pests led to a completely bare area. The former spruce site could be replanted with a healthy mixture of about 50% broadleaf and 50% conifer. Tree species include sweet chestnut, black walnut, walnut, cherry and Douglas fir. The choice of tree species at this site is considered sustainable with regard to the changing climate in Central Europe.
The area is PEFC-certified and thus meets standards that take ecological, social and economic aspects into account. This project would not have been economically feasible without our help.
