Unsere zwei Baumpflanzprojekte im Juli - NIKIN EU

Our two tree planting projects in July

We are committed to tree planting campaigns around the world together with our community and our partner One Tree Planted. In July we are supporting two projects in Ireland and Lithuania. Find out in this blog why the actions are so important and what you can do.

Ireland has the lowest forest cover of any European country with a forest cover of just 11%. The aim of the Ireland 2023 - Nationwide Community Tree Cover project is to expand forest cover and plant 200,000 trees in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The aim is to plant native tree species made from certified Irish seeds and thus create different habitats, which also supports biodiversity.

More than just green trees

Particular focus is on involving local communities in the process of tree planting and care. This is intended to create more understanding and knowledge about the topic. The tree planting project also provides environmental benefits such as soil protection, water quality improvement, flood protection and air purification. A win for us humans and our environment.

No one is too small to be a TreePlanter

Our second project takes us to Lithuania. Together with our partner One Tree Planted we are planning to restore a forest in collaboration with the Vilnius City Council. Around 100 children from surrounding schools and kindergartens will be involved in this project. In child-friendly training courses, they first learn more about the importance of forests and the consequences of climate change.

«Vilnius Forest of Children»

In the second step, they receive seedlings and actively help with planting. Part of the children's task is to visit "their" trees regularly in the future. The trees planted are intended to enrich the landscape, neutralize CO2, clean the air and reduce the effects of global warming. The planted area of ​​the “Vilnius Forest of Children” project is monitored to ensure the best possible growth of the trees. In addition, recurring lessons are planned for school children.
