Created in 2011 in order to create a balance between
what we draw from nature and what we give back. This is why every year, thanks
to our donors, we plant trees in the areas that most need it. Professional care
includes the entire process from growing seedlings into adult trees in
protected areas that are not subject of felling. At the heart of Slovakia is our most important
ecological wealth - the High Tatras. Which in 2004 was severely damaged by
storms and damage was done to almost three million trees over an area of 8737 hectares.
As a result of this ecological catastrophe there was a widespread outbreak of the
wood pestilent European spruce bark beetle. In recent years this beetle has
destroyed more than 2,254,000 trees in the area of the Tatras on an area of
nearly 7,300 hectares. Therefore the original calamity area has almost doubled.
We are planting trees
Vysoké Tatry- HIGH TATRAS - eco heritage of Slovakia.

Trees infested with this beetle eventual dry out and die.
