Travel & Tree: overview tree projects

We have various tree projects in our portfolio. The project sites are in Germany, one in Austria, and one in Tanzania.

Tree projects in Germany

Currently, we are working on different tree projects in Germany: in Hesse, the Black Forest, and the Harz Mountains. We may also start more tree planting projects in Eastern Saxony and Lusatia in 2022, and North Rhine-Westphalia and Schleswig-Holstein. We have completed the first projects in the Black Forest and Hesse. Soon, we will offer a tree project pool to enable you to support all projects equally.

The goal is always two-fold: to afforest and reforest damaged areas and regenerate them to preserve forests for the future. Usually, the forester considers 2-3 different tree species at one location and 1-2 tree species in very small areas. Tree species include fir, larch, oak, hornbeam, sycamore, cherry, tree hazel, walnut and others.

There are various ways to support our tree projects: onetime participation, occasional contribution, or monthly tree subscription. Of course, we can discuss PR or marketing activities for individual campaigns that go along with your tree sponsorship.

Tree project in Austria

We started a collaboration with an association in Austria to support the reforestation of 13,000 hectares of damaged areas in Lower Austria. In the past few years, bark beetle infestation has damaged an area of 20,000 hectares in Austria that we need to reforest quickly.

Tree project in Tanzania

The project is in the northeast of Tanzania, where almost 230,700 hectares of land are being reforested and renatured. This project means more than just a contribution to climate protection. Trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, and this is important for our climate. Planting trees in a developing country also fulfills other aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), according to the 2030 Agenda.
