Montplonne, Grand-Est, France

Planting trees

We plant 1.111 trees in the Montplonne forest to enhance it, sustainably preserve it and bring the biodiversity to its full potential. We will donate € 5000 to this project.

Nature is a master at carbon capture

The Montplonne forest is nestled between the communes of Montplonne and Stainville in northeast France. EcoTree took over the management of the forest in November 2022 with the aim of enhancing it and bringing it to its full potential. The forest consists of 3 clusters of more than 10 tree species, covering 83,5 hectares, or about 117 football fields.

EcoTree is a pioneer in its holistic approach to carbon certification. The company enables individuals and companies to take concrete action for the environment by supporting sustainable management of forests and ecosystem restoration in Western and Northern Europe.

What will be done with the donation amount?
We will plant 1.111 trees in the Montplonne forest. To preserve the forest's biodiversity, we will maintain the diversity of species planted on the forest edges of the plots and plant others to increase the level of biodiversity. Here, we will plant Downy Oak, Sorb, Pear, Norway Maple, Italian Maple, large-leaved lime, Whitebeam, Checker tree, Scots pine, Apple, Wild cherry, Field Maple and Italian Alder. These trees we plant offer diverse benefits, from supporting wildlife to improving soil quality, providing shade, and adding visual appeal. Together, they contribute to a healthy and biodiverse forest ecosystem in the Grand Est region of France.

Why is this important?
To sustainably preserve and restore nature by managing a diverse forest and thus creating natural, long-term, carbon sinks. This management excludes using chemicals and clear-cutting, promoting the forest ecosystem's biodiversity and ecological resilience.

What does this mean for the future?
The project represents a long-term commitment to environmental sustainability, focusing on carbon capture and the preservation of biodiversity. It is managed under a plan guaranteed for a minimum of 100 years, indicating a lasting impact on climate action and forest conservation.

How will you measure its success?
The project will be considered successful if it achieves its objectives of enhancing the forest's natural characteristics, managing it sustainably without chemicals, and effectively preserving its biodiversity over the long term. The project includes specific, measurable indicators such as the number of trees planted and the area of forest edges preserved. These metrics provide a clear basis for assessing the project's impact and success, you can read about it in their carbon methodology.

Once the new forest has been planted and the young trees have had some time to grow, the forest will be open to the public between March and September. So you are more than welcome to come by and take a look!
