The idea behind “TREES CONNECT” is to overcome borders in hearts and minds and to bring East and West closer together. Particularly with the background of the current political situation in Europe we, the Tree Nursery Lorberg – together with the project’s other benefactors – want the project to be an emblem for peace and a united Europe.
EUROPEAN CYCLE ROUT R1
The European Cycle Route R1 starts in Boulogne-sur-Mer (France), ends in St. Petersburg (Russia), and is 3,600km long. It runs from West to East through a total of nine countries and connects Europe like no other bike route.
A SUCCESS STORY:
2015 the Lorberg Tree Nursery donated 200 particularly robust Resista-Elms along the European Cycle Route R1 and followed on by sending a highly motivated bunch of sport cyclists along the route from Berlin to St. Petersburg. 2,350 kilometres, twelve days and two wheels – The positive media response, the great reception from the nursery branch, as well as all the wonderful meetings and experiences along the way, means there’s only one thing to do: TREES CONNECT must go on.
TREES CONNECT 2016
“The feedback was overwhelming” said CEO Stefan H. Lorberg. “As well as that, TREES CONNECT had a very positive impact on us and our employees. And that’s why we want to give our friends and partners – as well as everyone else – the chance to be a part of this unique project.” The green belt between the West and East will be completed with the section of the route between Berlin, Boulogne-sur-Mer and London.
1,270 kilometres in eleven days. The starting point, just as last year, will be the prestigious Brandenburger Tor. The route will run from Berlin through Potsdam, Dessau, Stassfurt, Goslar, Gütersloh, Munster, Utrecht and The Hague in Holland, as well as Brugge in Belgium, Calais in France all the way through to London. And just like last time, it’s planting first – pedaling second.
