“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” – John Muir

Project Description

The Gifted Tree’s planting project in the heart of Alsace, the communal forest of Sélestat which has been strongly affected by a fungal disease: the chalarose. The fungus is responsible for the wilting of the leaves, the necrosis of the stems and the drying out of the branches; these consequences lead to the death of the affected tree. In order to anticipate and counteract the consequences of ash dieback, a new strategy is being adopted to reforest this declining mass. This involves, for example, giving priority to species other than ash (pedunculate oak, maple, black alder…) during stand renewal operations, giving priority to reconstituting the “gaps” created by chalarose. Our reforestation project will enable the stand to be restored and the new hardwood species will host a varied biodiversity, bringing the area back to life.

Once connected to the map, feel free to zoom in and out to get a feel of the general planting
area as well as its location in France, Europe, and the world. Please understand that this is the
general area of the tree planting. Your tree will be planted among thousands of other gift trees and
there is no plaque designating the gift tree and visiting the tree is unfortunately not possible.
Know that the tree planting project is making a monumental difference for the earth and
opening a new doorway to the world for future generations.

Preserve Their Legacy For Future Generations.
