Project summary: 

The beneficiary’s land is located on a difficult, mountainous terrain of poor soil fertility and thus was not suitable for any kind of profitable cultivation. As the beneficiary wanted to avoid the wild overgrowth of blackthorn, the only solution was the investment in an afforestation project.

Project results: 

The beneficiary currently has 22 500 trees on his land and each year another 1000 trees are planted.

The total area of the afforested land is 8 ha including firs, beech, oak, black alder, birch and pine.
