Life terra tree plating project picking up momentum across Europe

Recently we published a roundup of of this year’s activities so far from our friends and partners, Life Terra. Life Terra seeks to bring people together to plant 500 million trees in Europe, harnessing and monitoring nature’s own carbon capture mechanism and enabling citizens to take urgent action against the climate crisis, now. Well, if you thought they were busy in January and February, let’s take a look at what that momentum has produced in March and April, including first-time plantings in new countries.

‘We're making this island more beautiful with the planting of 22 different species of native trees and bushes at the national hockey stadium, adding much-needed green to the city,’ it reads on their blog. ‘We applied mulch to help retain moisture and also placed several Cocoons, water-saving devices to help grow trees. But would you believe it? After 3 months without a drop, it started raining in the afternoon, so all plants will get a good headstart! More photos?

28 March 2022: Spain – School planting with IES Alonso Quijano. On Monday 28 March, the Life Terra team carried out a planting event in the schoolyard of the high school IES Alonso Quijano with the collaboration of “1 Million Trees for Climate Change” from Alcalá de Henares. More than 120 first-year students and the school eco-delegates took part in the planting of about 200 trees and shrubs. The aim of this activity was not only to create a green barrier around the perimeter of the yard, but also to provide shelter and food for urban fauna, especially birds. Students learned how to care for and promote local fauna and the importance of green areas in urban environments as well as how to care for trees. More details ? Source: IES Alonso Quijano
The first professional planting in Italy has been completed. More than 9000 trees planted in 7 hectares. The AlberItalia team designed a multifunctional polycyclic planting that aims to create a more orderly future riverside Woodland. Among the species planted we highlight Sessile oak (Quercus robur), White poplar (Populus alba), Alder (Alnus glutinosa) or European black elderberry (Sambucus nigra). The planting area is within the Natura 2000 network, and this reforestation will undoubtedly bring great ecological value to the area, reducing erosion on the riversides and supporting the local fauna.

Life Terra are very happy to have been able to plant trees in Dublin in their first event in Ireland. About a hundred+ years ago only about 1% tree cover was left on this big island, now the country has about 11%. We aim to increase that percentage the coming years in collaboration with local partners. A big thanks to the EY Ireland team coming out to support this planting and partners One Tree Planted and Easy Treesie. More photos ?

Moritz, a master’s student of agricultural economics contacted Life Terra a few months ago with his idea to create a food forest at his friend’s Demeter farm in the south of Germany that is also going to be an evolving field lab and a potential destination for school field trips. Friends, family, neighbours and other supporters came to learn about the project. Over the course of a few days, finishing up this Easter weekend, the volunteers planted a biodiverse mix of certified organic shrubs and trees, created climbing supports for the young plants and prepared garden beds.

This spring, together with the University of Barcelona and Volterra, Life Terra are working with five students with the bachelor’s degree in Environmental Sciences (UB) to develop a reforestation project in Spain. They visited the project area in Camarena de la Sierra, in the beautiful region of Teruel, to analyse the ecological context, take soil samples, and interview key stakeholders and local people to understand their vision. This was an opportunity for students to get hands-on experience and apply their theoretical knowledge to a real reforestation project. More ?

How technology can help grow forests. Ned Dwyer, a specialist in satellite imagery, believes that technology has a role to play in helping us to restore the environment. Ned's role within Life Terra is to use satellite data and images in order to tell us about the health of the newly planted trees and the plots and how they are developing over time.
