We plant mixed forests in Germany
Why the forest is important
At Planted, we firmly believe in harnessing the power of the forest against the advancing climate crisis. After all, trees are our allies in the fight against climate change: they store CO₂, release oxygen, store and filter drinking water, our air, and provide a habitat for many animals and other species.
But our German forests are in bad shape, and the consequences of climate change have taken their toll. For this reason, we are planting climate-stable trees regionally and protecting existing forests. This is how we can combat climate change and preserve the planet for future generations.
Our plantings at a glance
49°29'13.9 "N 8°04'56.2 "E
In the Palatinate, we have planted in various areas to bring back the mixed forest there. Among other things, oaks, willows, alders and firs grow here to keep the forest climate-stable.
50°12'49.8 "N 8°14'11.2 "E
The forest near Idstein has been home to sweet chestnuts, oriental beech and red oaks since the fall of 2022. This is also an impulse for the mixed forest of the future, which should keep the area climate-stable.
47°55'13.7 "N 11°43'33.9 "E
Near Munich, we planted on different areas in the Hofoldinger Forest. Oaks, hornbeams and firs, which are to preserve the forest there in the future with all its protective functions.
50°39'52.3 "N 6°14'37.9 "E
In Aachen, we planted sessile oaks, common oaks, bird cherries, wild apples and wild pears. Five different tree species that are to grow into a mixed forest in the future.
51°04'43.2 "N 7°41'12.9 "E
In the forest near Gummersbach, we planted cherries, red alder and beech trees in spring 2023. In this way, we are also trying to keep the forest climate-stable for future generations and creatures.
Planted promotes the future
52°10'56.1 "N 14°18'42.7 "E

50°56'35.5 "N 7°11'15.1 "E
The Königsforst near Cologne is well-known in the city and a popular destination for excursions. Due to climate change, however, many areas have died off, which we are replanting together with forest and wood in a climate-friendly way.
Forest Frankfurt (Taunus)
50°18'13.7 "N 8°29'11.1 "E
After World War II, the Taunus near Frankfurt was mainly planted with monocultures that were heavily infested with bark beetles. With climate-stable tree species, we are giving impulses for the future here.
51°22'27.2 "N 6°50'04.9 "E
On an area near Mühlheim an der Ruhr, we planted four different tree species in spring 2022, which form a mixed forest with existing trees.
51°58'13.0 "N 8°34'39.0 "E
Near Bielefeld, we plant in the Holter forest and Bielefeld city forest on areas that have suffered from climate change. Climate-stable tree species are to preserve the forest for future generations.
50°40'16.7 "N 7°02'58.3 "E
We have planted a total of 10,000 trees in Bonn's Kottenforst to preserve the forest as a habitat with all its protective functions for future generations, animals and plants.
50°50'43.6 "N 7°50'16.5 "E
63% of the forest near Siegen is pure coniferous forest, which cannot cope with the new climate conditions. To counteract this, we have planted beech trees to expand the areas as mixed forest.
50°07'33.0 "N 8°11'42.4 "E
In the Taunus, more than 1,000,000 m² of forest area have been destroyed as a result of climate change. There, together with HessenForst, we are planting climate-stable tree species in various areas.
Mixed forest on former lignite area
50°53'13.3 "N 6°47'42.1 "E
In autumn, we plant climate-stable tree species on a former brown coal site. The creation of a mixed forest is intended to revitalise the area and bring back biodiversity.
The TREETOBEE® planting cartridges
50°07'33.0 "N 8°11'42.4 "E
The TREETOBEE® planting cartridge is a planting method in which trees are planted in the forest after a few months in the nursery in a way that is gentle on the roots. The advantage is that it makes it easier for the trees to grow in.
Community service for the environment
51°53'28.2 "N 8°36'41.3 "E
