The main objective of the Polish-German Project is to improve the management of trees representing the green infrastructure of the two countries. This happens through the devising and dissemination of guidelines and good practice concerning tree maintenance, as well as support for activity from the public and decisionmakers alike. The Project output is further disseminated to other countries of the European Union.
In October 2016, a start was made to implementation work on the “Trees for Europe’s Green Infrastructure” Project (LIFE15 GIE/PL/000959), as funded via the European Commission within the framework of the LIFE+ Financial Instrument. Our activity also seeks to improve the management of trees that are a key element of green infrastructure. The establish standards that help managers of trees to care for them, as well as backing public participation in tree maintenance and protection.
The main thrust to our activity within the Project framework is the devising of guidelines and good practice over the maintenance of trees as green infrastructure. These are to arise with the involvement of experts and representatives of the institutions they are to serve. We intend to work in the following main subject areas relating to trees as green infrastructure, i.e.:
A second aspect of our activity entails support for the friends of trees, i.e. people active in civil society who take care of trees and are concerned with their fate. We will seek to supply all the knowledge these people need for full competence, to ensure that they can play the role of partners for local government in efforts to increase tree cover in both urban and rural areas.
