Trees planted in Switzerland
Tons of CO2 will be absorbed in average
In collaboration with the biologist, Sylvie Viollier, tall fruit trees and hedges were planted to enrich the vineyard of the Domaine de Verex. These trees will bring a beautiful biodiversity and many animals, such as insects, birds and small mammals. These animals will find shelter and food. All planted trees will produce edible fruits and berries. These trees will also store CO2 and will be beneficial for the environment. Tree species for this living edge: Field Maple, Common Hornbeam, Field Elm, Chestnut, Sorb, Cherry, Wild Pear, Wild Apple, Sessile Oak, Small-leaved, Linden, Large-leaved Linden, Saskatoon, Cornelian Cherry, Common Hazel, Common Privet, Myrobalan, Squeeze, Wild Plum, Schwadernau Plum, Blackthorn, Mahaleb Cherry, Rosebush, Welded Style, Rose, Dog Rose, Gooseberry, Basket Willow, Red Currant, Wild Red Currant, Wild Raspberry, Black Elderberry.
Tree species for high-stemmed fruit trees: Apple trees, Pear trees, Cherry trees, Mulberry trees, Quince trees, Nefliers, Peach trees, Mirabelle, Plums trees, Apricot trees, Chestnut trees, Walnut trees
Located in the middel of the vineyard of Cartigny, this forest of spruce trees was affected by climate change. The trees were weakened and the bark beetle spread easily into this planted trees in monoculture. Changes needed to by done as the spruce do not have its place in this area anymore. With the help of Ballons du Leman, we planted oaks, which are more suitable to adapt with climate change.
This region has been affected by repeated droughts, windstorms and bark beetle. The spruces, already weakened, had to be cut down. On this parcel, the adaptation of the forest is strategic for the forestry service and the commune of Féchy. The idea is to plant species that are adapted to climate change and resistant, such as oaks, wild cherry trees and hornbeams
