"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." Chinese Proverb.
There are also great initiatives to plant trees in Europe. The Life Terra reforestation project aims to plant 500 million trees across Europe within five years. It involves an investment of 12.8 million euros. Sixteen participants from eight countries are associated with the project. The initiators of the reforestation project refer to a Chinese saying: The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. One of the objectives of the project is to make an important contribution to the European Green Deal, in which it has been agreed, among other things, that 3 billion trees must be planted by 2030. The trees are planted as much as possible on vacant lots in the cities, in areas where many trees have been lost due to forest fires and in other places restore biodiversity. Do you want to join?
