Who are we
EcoTree is a company specialised in the ecological and economic valorisation of the French forest and in the restoration of biodiversity in France and in Europe. Its innovative model allows anyone to become a tree owner in sustainably managed forests. EcoTree also implements numerous projects in favour of forest biodiversity such as the restoration of wetlands, the planting of melliferous hedges, the creation of flowering fallows or the sponsorship of beehives.
Forests are home to 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity, but this biodiversity is under threat. EcoTree is responding to the issues of biodiversity loss through targeted projects in its forests: restoration of key habitats, installation of wildlife shelters, improvement of food resources for pollinators…
With BeeOdiversity, EcoTree is setting up bio-monitoring systems in several of its apiaries on the edge of the forest.
Thanks to this monitoring, valuable information is obtained on the quantity and quality of local pollen, as well as pollution (pesticides, heavy metals) in the area.
This data allows foresters to better target actions to improve the quality of local food resources for bees (for example, by planting melliferous hedges around the hives).
