We’re preserving forests, planting trees, and even making it easier for people to get out among them—all part of our commitment to environmental stewardship in the country.

We started planting trees in Germany’s forests back in 2006 with our partner Bergwaldprojekt. In our first project, we planted 2,000 trees in a forest near Munich. Since then, we’ve helped plant over 18,250 trees in Germany with Bergwaldprojekt e.V. And, we’re not about to slow down.  

In addition to planting trees, we’re creating “Timberland Trails”— paths that let people get out and enjoy trees and the forests they’re in. We’ve already built one in Bad Kohlgrub (Bavaria). Find our second one in Munich/Neuried (Bavaria). The trails share a history of the forest, educate, and explain the science of forestry. Our goal is to improve the way people experience forests when they hike through them.  

Never heard of Bergwaldprojekt?

They’re a non-profit group who aim to conserve and preserve forests. They focus on alpine forests and cultural landscapes. They highlight our forests’ problems, their histories, and look for ways to improve environmental conditions. Learn more: www.bergwaldprojekt.de
