Why the trees ?
To day, we become aware of the importance of the tree for the safeguarding of humanity.
The tree is one of the main agents of protection against climate change. Under house arrest, the object of mercantile covetousness, neglect and indifference, he demands our attention. Let’s not shoot without necessity according to the NFB’s criteria!

"Biodiversity" is not a buzzword. It’s a serious matter... The greening of cities is underway. What benefits do urban trees bring us! (according to FAO).
We have never cared so much for insects (insect hotels, apiaries), as a consequence of birds, who find shelter in the foliage, in the hollow of the trunks or in the nest boxes installed in parks and gardens.
