Rhein-Main Planting Event 2021, Germany

About the Project

Trees do not only serve as CO2-storage, but also occoupy an important function in the water circle, since they increase water storage potential of the ground and minimize water evaporation from the ground. The RG Rhein-Main will plant 300 trees in cooperation with the neighbour RG Rhein-Neckar and the Wasserbeschaffungsverband Riedgruppe Ost in a wildlife park on the areal of the water station. Red oaks and wild cherries will be planted next to the wild boar enclosure. The wild cherry, apart from its role in CO2 and water cycle, also serves as feed for ative birds and insects. So: Hands on the spades and start planting!

This project is part of the TeoG CO2-initiative and will be funded by RG Rhein-Main and TeoG CO2 fund. It makes an important part to climate protection and meets the following SDGs:
