The forest is a complex ecosystem
We are going through difficult times these days: repeated financial crisis and natural disasters perpetuated by climate change have pushed the world to the brink. Forest of Peace believes that now is the right time for you and your business to pause and reflect whether your involvement with your environment, be it human or nature, is at a responsible and approprivate level. Below we provide you with the information you need in order to understand our mission: growing trees, counteracting carbon emission and securing the future education of a child with our ‘intelligent Child Teak Education Trust’ – iCTET. We believe that with every small step we take, we can make a difference. We hope that you will be part of our achievements, because we cannot do it alone:
“What we cannot create alone, we shall achieve together”

The Top 5 | or even more..
- Forests protect against soil erosion, through the extensive root system of trees and shrubs in the soil washing a way of soil by water is prevented.
- Trees provide a balanced environment:.. it reduces the contrast between heat and cold and wind protection.
- Forests produce oxygen: Forest plants provide large amounts of vital oxygen through photosynthesis. A tree produces leaves with its 1 million per year around 4500 kg of oxygen, which is 3.2 million liters or 3200 cubic meters. For that he needs about 75,000 tons of carbon dioxide!
- Forest collects and purifies water: ..Loose forest floor with many cavities and pores torapidly takes rainfall, the water is only slowly starting again. The roots of the trees with moss and fungi form a symbiosis. Moss can store very large amounts of water. The runoff from forest areas are therefore spread more evenly than those from open areas. Floods are rare. Sources, which are located in the forest donate, even during sustained drought water. This water has almost always drinking water quality. The slow seepage of water replaced by the forest floor consuming cleaning procedures. Of 100 cubic meters of water that fall annually on the surface of a tree, he takes up 40 cubic meters and itsaves about 30 cubic meters.
- Forest of Peace takes a stand for trees and for kids: via iCTET, we provide financial security for the future tertiary education of a child:
“Nature, animals and humans together form an organism. We are all interconnected and interdependent. Therefore, it is important that we pro tect the planet and change our behavior. And it is the time to change some thing “here and now”. We believe that even the small est idea can achieve some thing great and have already implemented our projects. Above all, we want to give young people a voice, because in the hands of our youth is the future of the world.”
