Trees are a valuable natural asset that require professional knowledge and understanding to ensure that they realize their tremendous potential. That is why every tree in the Climate Forest project goes through three stages – from a promising sapling to a living and blooming plant for years to come.
Every sapling in the project is cared for an entire year in a tree nursery – a space at educational institutions, old age homes, rehabilitation institutes, etc. Thanks to organized irrigation systems and ongoing care, the saplings in the nurseries double their height and the size of the root ball grows tenfold over the first year, ensuring that they are stronger and better equipped for replanting in the ground.
We examine the potential locations according to a set of strict criteria
After a proper site was selected, The trees will be planted in pits enriched with compost, Osmocote fertilizer and mycorrhiza (a fungus that lives symbiotically with the trees’ roots), will be tied to a support stake, placed with a tree guard and be connected to the drip irrigation system. The permanent planting will be managed in the by the Climate Forests’ team along with local communities and volunteers.
The Climate Forest’s team oversee and ensure that every tree that is planted receives all the conditions for its survival, through ongoing communication with the owners of the land and biannual supervision visits to each site. If necessary, saplings that do not survive will be replaced with new ones.
