The TWINT forest

Be part of our plan to make Switzerland greener. With your help, we are planting 150 trees in our own TWINT forest near Bern, in the heart of Switzerland. This year, the reforestation of Swiss forests is especially important: storms and extreme temperature fluctuations are making life more and more difficult for trees in Switzerland. Win your own tree and do good!

What effect will 150 trees have?

  • They will provide a home for a large number of insect species such as moths and beetles
  • 150 oak trees are an important source of food for animals such as birds, mice and wild boar, and will produce 1.5 billion acorns in their lifetimes.
  • Some 39 tonnes of carbon dioxide will be absorbed
  • The ground water will be filtered through the trees
  • The area surrounding the forest will provide a recreation area for the local population. When people walk through forests, their stress levels decrease by 28 percent.

Our partner Almighty Tree

To achieve our aim of 150 newly planted trees in Switzerland, we have entered into a partnership with Almighty Tree. Almighty Tree helps to ensure sustainable forest management by offering private individuals and companies the opportunity to plant trees.

In its endeavour to design a sustainable future and improve the social, economic and environmental well-being of our communities, Almighty Tree focuses on enhancing our wooded heritage, and developing our forests and biodiversity in Switzerland, while also raising the awareness of the population and companies by bringing them closer to nature.

Thanks to the activities of Almighty Tree, more than 4700 trees have already been planted in seven different cantons.
