Trees planted in Switzerland
Tons of CO2 will be absorbed in average
swisspor partners with Almighty Tree to preserve, protect and enhance the value of forests in Switzerland. swisspor plants trees in Switzerland to diversify the forests with species adapted to climate change.
swisspor cares about their footprint and would like to do something good for our nature. It makes sense for them, as part of their philosophy, to promote recycling amongst their stakeholders. Thus, swisspor plants young trees in the Swiss forests for sustainable wood management, greater biodiversity and carbon sink creation. swisspor plants 100 trees per year since 2021.
tree planting projects
This forest is exposed to droughts and climate change, which has weakened the spruce trees in the region. They have been planted many years ago in monoculture. Therefore, the trees affected by bark beetle had to be cut and leave a hole behind. We replanted oak, walnut, chestnut and wild cherry trees to diversify this beautiful forest.
This project aim to adapt a part of a forest, which was mainly sheltering spruce trees. Unfortunatela, the spruce trees were weakened by climate change and got attacked by bark beetle. Dried in a few weeks, they were cut down and replaced by Douglas trees, which are already present in this area and well-adapted to warmer climate.
It is a habitat for flora and fauna, a protection against avalanches, rock falls or erosion and it is a "green lung". After cutting trees affected by the bark beetle, we replanted larches in this mountain forest to diversify the tree species and create a sustainable forest in high altitude. Larches will color the forest in the fall season. They may live up to 600 years old like their neighbours with the famous larches from Balavaud, oldest ones in Europe.
The goal of this project is the creation of a new protection forest against avalanches and rock falls. This forest will protect the village, its inhabitants and also have an effect on erosion. swisspor participated in the creation of this forest of the future by planting white fir trees, sycamore maples and Douglas fir trees. These species, resistant and interesting for the future, will bring biodiversity and protection to this region.
