Under the European Green Deal, the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 commits to planting at least 3 billion additional trees in the EU by 2030
- In full respect of ecological principles: the right tree species in forests, agricultural areas, urban and peri-urban areas and along infrastructure corridors
- An effort to increase tree cover in the EU: in addition to the trees that are planted in a "business as usual" scenario
The EU forest strategy for 2030 includes a roadmap
on how to achieve the 3 billion additional trees pledge.
