Planting trees for Lower Saxony
- On 25. April 2022
For years, climate change, storms and pests such as the bark beetle have been affecting the forests in Lower Saxony. The forest is essential for the survival of people and nature as well as for our local forestry and timber industry. Around a quarter of Lower Saxony’s land area is covered with forest. The initiative “Planting trees for Lower Saxony” wants to counteract this trend and is committed to sustainable afforestation in Lower Saxony. Each of us can participate and become a tree godmother or tree sponsor for the planting of a seedling with a donation of only 5.00 euros.
Optimum Media is therefore supporting the initiative “Planting Trees for Lower Saxony” of Antenne Niedersachsen, the initiative fit4future natur of the fit4future foundation Germany and the Niedersächsischen Ministerium für Ernährung, Landwirtschaft und Verbraucherschutzwith a donation of 100 trees.
The foresters of the Lower Saxony Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection coordinate the planning and planting of the seedlings. This ensures that the right tree species also come to the right locations. Great importance is attached to the sustainability of the initiative. Therefore, the seedlings are provided with a bite protection to avoid wildlife damage. Care is also ensured for at least three years.
