Today, 16 May 2022, is international “Love a Tree Day” and we are happy to share some pictures of our recent tree planting action in the Harz Mountains, in Germany. Many trees there, or what is leftover of them, in one of Germany’s most beautiful National Parks, have been destroyed by a continuous bug plague and heavy storms, which have caused the death of especially the spruce trees.
We met with our partners from PLANT-MY-TREE® in a reforestation area nearby Hayn, a heavily affected region in the Harz Mountains. There, members of our Sustainability Team from Bertling Logistics Germany planted trees as part of our donation and corporate social responsibility project. The remaining trees were planted by PLANT-MY-TREE® directly.
With our donation, four different types of trees were planted to ensure the biodiversity and ecosystem of the forest get recreated. It will still take many years until these trees have reached a reasonable height to proactively filter CO2 from the atmosphere. However, therefore, even better to start now, so that we can jointly make an impact and fight climate change.
We would like to thank PLANT-MY-Tree® for the collaboration and look forward to the next tree planning event already.
