Educational project to restore damaged forests in Wegscheid communal forest, France
1 tree: 23.00
Objective: 4260 trees amounting to 97980
In the communal forest of Wegscheid, certain plots are mainly made up of fir and spruce species. Since 2018, these species have suffered from drought and successive attacks from bark beetles. The project aims to replace the diseased spruce trees in Wegscheid forest with a diversity of species more resilient to climate change. This initiative includes an important educational component, too, by involving schoolchildren from the local community. A total of 4,260 trees of nine different species will be planted during two waves of planting.
