The ViitorPlus Association, through the afforestation project “Adoptă un copac!”, launches a unique planting campaign, suitable for the special circumstances in which we find ourselves. This year the pandemic made everything more difficult, including planting with volunteers, but we decided not to sit idle. We are organizing the first virtual planting in Romania, in the fall of 2020, and, at the same time, we are raising funds to plant, in the spring of 2021, a new protective forest belt in the south of Romania, a real living shield!
You can plant the trees together with your loved ones, in the place you choose, and we will send you everything you need, or you can help us to plant the newest protective forest belt in the south of Romania, by adopting a meter of forest belt.
Choose the option that suits you best!
Together, but from a safe distance, we gather on November 21st, for the first virtual planting event in Romania! The event will take place on Facebook and will unite all those who want to plant with us. Our team will plant a forest belt, and each of you will plant the trees received from us in the place you choose. From a safe distance, but united by the same goal, let’s all plant as many trees as possible, which will restore the balance of nature and ours, both!
How to participate
The counties in southern Romania have a degree of afforestation between 4.5% and 10%, and according to the Forestry Code any county with a degree of afforestation of less than 30% is considered a forest deficient area. Also, in today’s Romania, 20,000 hectares of forest protection belts are needed: over 16,000 ha to protect the fields and 3,500 ha to protect 1,720 km of roads.
We feel the need more than ever to connect with nature. We have stayed in isolation, far away from parks, forests, and mountains and we missed the balance they offered us.
We wondered how we could reconnect with nature to restore our balance. The answer for us is simple: we plant a tree. Now we give you the opportunity to do this for yourself, in two ways: you donate and we do the planting, or you donate and you do the planting.
“Adoptă un copac!” is a ViitorPlus project, which makes history greener since 2008.
Since then and until now, we have planted with 13,100 volunteers over 590,000 trees on an area of ~ 75 hectares in the counties in the south of the country severely affected by the low degree of afforestation and the phenomenon of desertification.
In addition to planting on degraded land, we specialize in planting protective forest belts, which, in addition to the benefits provided by forests in general, resolve problems such as infertility and soil aridity or blockages due snowfall of roads and localities.
