Project Luckaitz Valley

Transforming a uniform pine forest into a near-natural biodiverse forest

632 ha in Brandenburg
23,685 t CO₂

Project Description and Activities

In the Luckaitztal project, Pina Earth is converting 632 hectares of pine monoculture in Brandenburg into a near-natural, biodiverse mixed forest over a project period of 30 years.

Activities such as promoting natural rejuvenation, planting new species and other activities listed on the right make the forest more resilient to the consequences of climate change such as storms, drought and beetle infestation.

Project activities

Stimulation of natural rejuvenation
Plant new species such as beech & oak
Promote tree species mixture
Wildlife management

Why we need forest adaptation

Storms

Forest areas with many tall and thin trees are more susceptible to storm damage (so-called windthrow). If, in addition, most of the trees in a section of forest are the same height, storms can lead to the loss of entire forest sections.

Forest fires

Wind plays a decisive role in the development of forest fires. In row-planted monocultures, the wind can easily push the fire through the stand, which leads to a faster spread of forest fires.
