Together with our community and One Tree Planted, we are committed to monthly tree planting projects around the world. In December, we are supporting two reforestation projects in Greece and Romania. You can find out more about the two projects in this blog.
Project in Ostattika - Greece
Our project in Greece aims to combat the effects of the forest fires in the Ostattika region near Athens since 2018. By planting 40,000 trees, including cypresses, carob trees, laurels and Judas trees, we aim not only to restore ecological diversity, but also to improve the quality of life of the community. The planting campaign covers several locations and enables animals that have moved to inhabited areas due to habitat loss to return to their natural environment.

Project in Transylvania - Romania
The project in Romania focuses on the restoration of wind-damaged forest areas in the Eastern Carpathians. Monocultures of spruce, which are susceptible to extreme weather events, are to be replaced by a natural mixture of spruce, beech and pine. The project not only promotes biodiversity, but also actively integrates the local community into planting and maintenance measures, thereby creating jobs.

Sustainable reforestation and social commitment
Our projects go beyond mere reforestation. With these projects, we not only want to strengthen the ecosystem, but also create benefits for the local communities. In Greece, for example, the air quality and aesthetic value of the region is greatly improved, while in Romania long-term jobs are created by involving the local community.
