Tree Project in Hesse
Tree Project in Koberstädter Forest
This project is a cooperation with the Rotary Club Dreieich-Isenburg and HessenForst. The area comprises 2 hectares where 13,000 oaks are going to be planted. In addition, there is another area of around 4 hectares in the immediate vicinity, which can also be reforested with another 6,500 oaks per hectare.
The Koberstädter Wald is a species-rich forest area in the south of Frankfurt, near Langen. Its size corresponds to about 10-12 km in north-south direction and 4-5 km in east-west direction.
It is an extremely valuable local recreation area that needs to be protected. It offers a sustainable habitat for numerous animal species and insects. Parts of the Koberstädter Forest belong to two European protected areas according to the Fauna-Flora Habitat guidelines. This project will only consider oak trees simply because it is the best choice for this location. This corresponds to the requirements of HessenForst.
