Wetlands are areas of land where water covers the soil either permanently or during specific seasons. These forest ponds, peat bogs and riparian zones are carbon sinks and essential for aquatic and forest fauna and flora. Peatlands alone store around 30% of the CO2 in terrestrial ecosystems and water quality depends on the abundance of life. Our wetlands work includes projects to restore peat bogs, rejuvenate ponds and clear forest streams.
Bees and honey hedges
Pollination provides 80% of our food. Honey bees are the most efficient insects for this in terms of numbers. Their presence in certain forests is recommended, not only for their survival but for the life of plants and trees. Together with experts we define the forests where beehives can be installed. If necessary, we plant melliferous hedges. We care for the bees and harvest the honey.
A flowering meadow allows the soil to rest between harvests and fits the framework of organic farming. Providing a wealth of biodiversity, flowering meadows are essential to the life of pollinating insects, birds and mammals. As part of our projects, we prepare the soil, sow and then plant seeds with great care to promote rare and native species.
Akira Miyawaki developed a method where dense forests are planted alongside local and indigenous tree species to restore the ecosystem that was once there. At EcoTree, we identify native tree species, enrich the soil, protect it with mulch and plant the trees. We then maintain the trees and carry out an inventory of fauna and flora.
Agroforestry is where trees and shrubs are planted on land dedicated to agriculture or grazing, which can make some crops produce better harvests. Trees enrich the soil by naturally adding nitrogen, as well as purifying water and maintaining soils. Of course, agroforestry allows farmers to diversify their income too, and our team studies and implements a number of projects.
We work with you to choose the right biodiversity conservation project for your business to support.
Our experts carry out and monitor your chosen project and how it benefits the forest ecosystem.
You and your team receive a report every year for you to learn more about your project’s progress.
You continue to get updates as your project evolves over time and we’re always here to answer questions.
We are experts in sustainable forest management. The trees you buy in our forests sequester carbon and help slow the erosion of biodiversity. When you buy EcoTree trees, you actively help the planet work towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and contribute to the fight against climate change.
