Grow For It collaborates with Hedeselskabet on tree planting on marginal agricultural land in the Baltics

In collaboration with Hedeselskabet, we have now also made it possible to donate for planting of climate forest in the Baltics. Climate forest in the Baltics is slightly more expensive measured per. tons of CO2 uptake than in the other tropical and subtropical areas where GrowForIt plants. This is because tree growth is not quite as fast in a temperate climate, and that the price level labor and cuttings is slightly higher in Europe.

We are convinced that there will also be interest in supporting tree planting in this Danish immediate area, which is within the EU.

Baltics, i.e. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are an ideal area for planting climate forests. There is a lot of marginal agricultural land that is suitable for afforestation, and there is good legal protection of classified forest. In addition, the price level is low, by European standards.

Plantings in the Baltics take place in collaboration with Hedeselskabet’s local subsidiary HD Forest. For these plantings, we have opened the possibility for interested donors to freely choose how much forest area they want to donate and thus how much money they want to donate, i.e. the crowdfunding model.

We have attained the new status thanks to more than one hundred donations of 200 Danish kroner each received from private individuals signing up for ”GO-FOR-IT memberships”. Additionally we have received  300 corporate Christmas gifts from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.

These contributions have enabled us to initiate planting of mangrove trees for 10.000 US $, making us a   ”Sapling partner” – read more: https://edenprojects.org/sapling-partners/.

De 10.000 US $ vil afstedkomme planting af minimum 100.000 mangrove stiklinger. Vi vil poste billeder af plantningerne, når disse er helt færdige, hvilket ifølge planen vil ske omkring nytår.
