We plant trees

We plant trees

We would like to actively contribute to environmental and climate protection and have been planting trees since October 2019.

We planted the first five trees - a walnut tree and four oak trees - ourselves. Here are a few pictures of the tree planting campaign of our first little trees:

We have been supporting the non-profit organization “I Plant A Tree” from Halle (Saale) since autumn 2019. The company specializes in the reforestation of leased and public areas and relies entirely on sustainable forestry within Germany . The organization takes care of the regional development of near-natural mixed forests. Clearings and wetlands where rare species settle are not planted by “I Plant A Tree”.

How much CO2 does a tree bind?

Each individual tree binds CO2 in the long term ( approx. 10 - 12.5 kg CO2 per year ) and thus makes an important contribution to climate protection. In order to offset one tonne of CO2 annually through trees, you have to plant at least 80 trees . For comparison: The average CO2 emissions per person in Germany is 11.1 tons annually.

Small donated tree

Do you know an organic hotel that is still missing from our portal and that we should include free of charge? Simply suggest it atäge and we will ask the hotel for permission to enter it.

Protecting native wildlife

If the hotel agrees to the entry, you donate a tree with your suggestion, which we pay for .

In this way you can easily contribute to climate protection and at the same time protect the local wildlife.

How much does it cost to donate a tree?

The price per tree at I Plant A Tree is €3.50 . In developing countries, trees are planted for as little as €0.10 to €1. However, we have decided to plant native trees whose protection is guaranteed. I Plant A Tree cultivates areas and trees and also buys land for reforestation.

Can I plant a tree myself?

Of course, anyone can easily plant a tree themselves. How about a magnificent oak tree? Oak trees can be up to 800 years old and reach a whopping 40 meters high. Collect an acorn and soak it in water overnight. The following day, plant the acorn in a small flower pot and place it on a windowsill that is as sunny as possible. The soil should always be kept slightly moist. The first shoots should appear after a few days. Now you can plant the small oak tree in nature. The most important thing is a sunny location , because oaks do not grow in the shade of other plants.
