Native Tree, Michigan, USA – CO2 0,7 Tons
In the 19th century, Michigan was the primary source of lumber for the country, and extensive logging occurred to support the growth of cities like Chicago and Milwaukee. The original native forest was replaced by monoculture spruce plantations, which involve growing a single plant species over a specific area to maximize profits. Unfortunately, this practice is detrimental to the local ecosystem, as it destroys unique habitats, reduces resilience to climate change, and increases susceptibility to diseases.
To address this problem, this project aims to restore the local ecosystem in the Michigan Upper Peninsula’s Hiawatha National Forest by increasing biodiversity through reintroducing a range of native tree species. With your support, this initiative will create an ecosystem better suited to the needs of local species such as bears, wolves, and waterfowls, enabling them to thrive.
