"Denmark plant trees" for new forests in Denmark
September 16th 2019
From us, Growing Trees Network Foundation, a sincere and humble THANK YOU for your donations to the telethon Denmark plant trees presented by TV2 and The Danish society for Nature Conservation. Your generosity and enthusiasm now leads to 46 new forests in Denmark, along with preservation of existing forests in Denmark and in Uganda. Well done! By planting more than 914.000 trees you have really made a difference and not only in Denmark. Now that the news about the telethon have spread globally you are inspiring other countries and cultures to do something similar.
We are so much looking forward to start the work of establishing all the forests together with the project owners. We will on the website of Denmark plant trees, our Facebook and in our newsletters (subscribe below) keep you informed when you can participate in the opening events of the new forests. We expect to be able to announce dates from the beginning of October.
Once again we thank you for your generous donations and looking forward to be establishing the new forests around Denmark together with you!
From our hearts
Growing Trees Network Foundation
We are very proud to be official partner of TV2s upcoming charity show Danmark planter træer to be transmitted LIVE on September 14th from 19:30 - 22:00.
All Danish citizens, associations, foundations and companies are now invited to take part in the upcoming charity show Danmark planter træer.
For every 20 DDK collected one tree will be planted in new forests in Denmark. Furthermore a share of the funds raised will be used by Den Danske Naturfond and WWF to preserve existing forests threatened by deforestation in Denmark and Uganda.
We, Growing Trees Network Foundation, will be in charge of establishing the new forests in Denmark.
Forest is the most efficient tool to withhold carbon from the atmosphere. In popular terms the forests are the lunges of the earth and according to the climate panel of the UN, more forests will be a very important contribution to combat and reduce our carbon footprint.
New forests are not only beneficial to the climate. At the same time they protect our ground water reservoirs, create new habitats for plants and wildlife and new areas of recreation for the citizens.
Growing Trees Network Foundation and everything we do is based on the values that everyone can contribute, everyone can make a difference and have a good experience doing it. It is all about creating the most value for Mother Earth - our nature, us humans and for the habitats of plants and wildlife.
A HUGE THANK YOU
The price of the land equals between 3/4 og 4/5 of the total cost of establishing a new forest. Therefor a huge THANK YOU to churches, municipalities and The Danish State for providing the land that makes it possible to establish new forests following the upcoming charity show Danmark planter træer.
