Project Description

The Gifted Tree’s planting project is in the area of Santervás de la Vega in northern Spain. With its over 45 million acres, the Spanish forest is highly beneficial in preserving local biodiversity, filtering water, and preventing soil erosion. However, due to climate change, the Spanish forest is affected by many scourges: diseases, fires, and storms. The challenge is to adapt the Spanish forest to climate change and to fight against soil erosion. Soil erosion, in particular, is a major problem for Spain. Not only does it cause dramatic flooding due to ground instability, but also makes it difficult to cultivate the farmland. Additionally, high frequency fires regularly wreak havoc in Spain. Your tree planted in Spain will help fight against soil erosion. The trees, mainly chestnut, alder and pine, will be planted strategically in pasture lands to help preserve plots from soil degradation and to create areas to shelter animals and stimulate biodiversity. Furthermore, your tree plantings will enhance the area’s resilience to disease and slow down the spread of wood-destroying insects. Finally, by restoring destroyed forests, you’re also helping to combat climate change through the new trees’ storage of CO2.

area as well as its location in Spain, 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.
