Ten new urban trees for the Tempelhof-Schöneberg district
Rising temperatures, persistent droughts and exhaust fumes are taking their toll on Berlin’s tree population. In the last ten years, not all of the trees felled in Berlin could be replanted. The Berlin Senate estimates the deficit to be around 10,000 trees.
Thanks to our financial support of 15,110.89 euros, the Tempelhof-Schöneberg district office was able to plant ten more city trees in autumn 2020 than originally planned. Six trees are located on Rheinstraße and four trees on Cosimaplatz.
The tree planting was carried out by professional experts and the care and watering are also guaranteed over the next three years. This means that nothing stands in the way of the trees thriving.
Among other things, trees provide shade, produce oxygen and increase the quality of life. Planted in rows, they act as windbreaks and reduce noise. In addition, our healthy trees offer a variety of habitats for insects and birds. The average lifespan of Berlin’s urban trees is estimated to be around 60 years.
