Project Description

The Gifted Tree’s planting project is in the area around Sighișoara in the historic region of Transylvania, Romania. The area was densely forested until tremendous windstorms in February 2020 brought down a wide swath of trees. The degraded forest is in the vicinity one of Romania’s largest rivers, the Olt river, thereby affecting the water runoff into the river. Your project aims to restore the natural forest type and enhance it with species capable of making structural changes in the future forest stand in order to create a resilient forest with often occurring natural disasters such as high intensity storms causing windfalls. The restoration activities include planting species which are tolerant to higher temperatures and drought in order to prepare the future forest for eventual climate change. These species include Norway Spruce, Larch, Sycamore, Rowan, and Wild pear. Not only will your planting help in improving water quality, but by using species which offer fruits (pear, rowan) we will be able to help with habitat reconstruction and wildlife retention, including the brown bear, which will hopefully readapt and survive without having to descend into the surrounding villages.

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 Romania, 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.
