Faster higher

These wonderful rainforest giants called Kuthiebie (Antiaris Toxicaria) grow in our protected forest in Kadingbilin. In Europe, one would assume that the tree was at least 100 years old – in West Africa, thanks to the tropical climate, it didn’t even need 60 years to reach this impressive size! Faster growth naturally also means faster CO2 sequestration. Every tree planted in Europe is good, but climate protection works more successfully in sub-Saharan Africa.
