The nature station “Silberweide” is a small but very fine nature protection centre/area at the northern end of the “Greifensee”
With a collaboration between the two, Desert Tree supports the protection of the local nature by sometimes planting a hedge here instead of planting a tree in Algeria in line with the main project. This does not diminish the main project as hedges are an important part, especially for birds (giving shelter) in otherwise open fields.
Furthermore, in 2015 a “forest couch” is supposed to be built, surrounding by local hedge plants which shall be financed by sales of room plants.
