Climate smart planting projects

Thousands of hectares of forests are threatened by climate change, pests, and diseases in Belgium and throughout Europe.  

That is why we decided to give the forest ecosystem a hand in our own country as well.

The projects include several diversified tree species adapted to the local conditions. We select the species based on the soil, climate conditions, global warming, etc. This ensures that we make a maximum impact.  

It is our ambition to make our rural territories resilient by planting hedges, orchards, innovative vegetable crops such a miscanthus but also by reforesting areas degraded by climatic and pest disturbances. These actions respond to different emergencies: act against global warming, preserve biodiversity, improve the quality of water and soil, contribute to the well-being of farm animals or even generate resources for local supply. We work upstream with farmers and foresters in organizing their planting project. 

Our partner, PlantC, conducts a monitoring visit in the summer after planting to ensure that the plants are recovering well. With the help of a “management plan”, there is more involvement by the forester. This way, we are sure that they are participating in a serious project that is treated in a sustainable and respectful way. 

Our action is not just about ‘planting trees’. Our ambition goes way beyond that. We want to develop productive symbioses between human beings and their environment. This is a message of optimism: we can, at the territorial level, diversify landscapes to accommodate biodiversity, store carbon and create new income opportunities. 

We plant trees with impact

Protecting and restoring our ecosystems should be on top of all of our lists. But having the proper knowledge is crucial to make a long-term change. From location, to timing, to care, there is a lot more to it than meets the eye, for a tree to make maximum impact. 

Reforestation

Go Forest does not focus solely on biodiversity but also aims to bring about behavioral changes to tackle the root causes of soil and deforestation problems. Each of us can have a positive impact on tomorrow’s world.

Care for communities​

At Go Forest, we don’t just plant trees. We engage in much more, such as ensuring sustainable support for local communities. We do so by using the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which serve as a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. Depending on the region and the project, you’ll be supporting different SDGs. Our project in Belgium focuses on the following SDGs: 

SDG13 Climate Action
SDG15 Life on Land
SDG17
GoForest Belgium 3

Let's plan(t) the future together.

Forests are an important player in the fight against global warming. A large portion of all the CO2 in the atmosphere is absorbed by the forests and stored in the form of organic carbon in the wood and soil. 

Unfortunately, deforestation and land use change also contribute 17% to the greenhouse effect. One of the most important and simplest ways to counteract global warming is to create greater biodiversity by planting forests. This is exactly what we at Go Forest, in partnership with various companies, are doing.

We don’t only plant your trees; we take care of them as well.

Argentina

The reforestation program in Argentina does not only address biodiversity challenges, but also social issues, by creating the conditions allowing indigenous communities to thrive, while recovering biodiversity.

Madagascar

Madagascar’s biodiversity is a very special one. The country has developed its own ecosystem and magnificent wildlife since it split from the African continent 160 million years ago.
