Reforestation in France!

/SARAH SALHI/Learn About Planting and All Blogs

At the Green Core, we believe that planting a diverse range of trees, including oak, beech, and adley is essential to creating flourishing forests. The Green Core is committed to reducing CO2 and has taken a proactive approach to reforestation. We have expanded our forest in France by planting more trees. This means a reduction of approximately 20.000 kg Liter of CO2 emissions per year. 

What trees are we planting and what role does each tree species have in our ecosystem?

Both beech and oak trees are well-suited to different soil types and can grow in a wide range of conditions. They are versatile and have deep roots that provide stability, making them useful for preventing erosion. While oak trees can grow in various soil types and absorb carbon dioxide, beech trees are helpful in stabilizing wet soils and reducing the risk of flooding.

Alder trees are nitrogen fixers, which means they can convert atmospheric nitrogen into a form that other plants can use for growth. As they grow, they shed leaves and branches that decompose and add organic matter to the soil, improving its structure and water-holding capacity. Alder roots can also help prevent erosion on steep slopes or riverbanks.

The Green Core's reforestation efforts also include reducing CO2, creating habitats for wildlife, improving air and water quality, and enhancing overall biodiversity. We are proud of our progress and will continue to expand our forest to create a more sustainable future.
