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. The trees were planted this fall 2021 in Valais and Fribourg.
tree planting projects

Fribourg

Altitude: 700m​

Type of trees planted: Chestnut and walnut trees

​Location: Piamont, FR

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 where larches and Douglas have been planted 10 years ago next to this plantation. 

Valais

Altitude: 1300m​

Type of trees planted: Larch trees

​Location: Val d'Annivers

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.
