Climate-Smart Forest Adaptation in Bavaria

Germany

Carbon Removal

Afforestation, Reforestation and Nature preservation

This project amplifies existing regional measures to protect and rebuild native ecosystems. By planting deciduous trees, the project aims to develop pure spruce forests into mixed woodland to make them more resilient against the effects of climate change like storms, drought, or pest infestation.

Climate-Smart Forest Adaptation in Bavaria

The project carried out by the Bavarian State Forests plants saplings and seeds to increase the pace of the redevelopment of monoculture forests of spruce trees into mixed woodland with at least 30% deciduous trees. By rebuilding forests as mixed woodland, the woods become more resilient against the effects of climate change such as drought, storms, and pest infestations. Overall, around 99k hectares of forest in Bavaria have to be converted from coniferous forest to mixed woodland.

By contributing to this project, you deliver earmarked funding for the Bavarian state forest administration to carry out the forest conversion. For each ton of CO₂ purchased, the project plants around 3.5 trees. Thus, every contribution increases the pace of the essential redevelopment of Bavarian forests. However, the project cannot issue any carbon credits, and your compensation cannot offset your emissions.
