We Harvested & planted trees with European Commissioner Frans Timmermans and Zuhal Demir Nature Minister Vlaams BE

Last Saturday we Harvested & planted trees with European Commissioner Frans Timmermans, Flemish Minister of Nature & Justice Zuhal Demir, Belgian Foresters with #MeerbomenNu #MoreTreesNow @urgendanl #MEERGroen in Hoeliaart, Belgium.
Simple #circular sustainable inexpensive way to plant trees, take climate action at #grassroots #community level. MoreTreesNow harvests seedlings that would normally die due to lack of space & competition or land management techniques, these are collected &stored in hubs over winter and then donated to volunteers & locations & planted in the Spring.
MoreTreesNow aims to give away 1m unwanted saplings to individuals, farmers & councils with the hope that the idea and initiative will spread across Europe.
Healthy forests can be a significant ally in our fight against climate change.
