Despite Coronavirus putting many countries on lockdown, our foresters have been able to continue their work. Because we keep our operations local, our supply chains are not disrupted and we continue to source and transport seedlings and small trees grown in nearby nurseries to our future forests.
Some people wonder whether it's better to focus on old-growth trees in a forest or to cultivate young plants. Others wonder about the opportunities to invest in an existing forest or in agricultural land to be reforested. Which system absorbs the most carbon and, in turn, will do the planet the most good?
Why oppose tree species when we know that they contribute to the economic function of the forest, which is essential for its survival? Faced with the many questions that arise from this subject, EcoTree has decided to clarify.
Every day, we are committed to responding to the many comments we receive on social networks. There are congratulations and encouragement, which warm our hearts; and then, from time to time, there is also criticism. Some are justified and help us grow. Others sometimes seem unfair to us. But we want to answer them by stating here what we are and what we are not.
New fundraising, the beginning of the international expansion, a strengthened and growing team with a new structure… Summed up, a new chapter of the EcoTree adventure has commenced. And much has happened since the beginning three years ago.
