project acreage: Deponie Wallendorf III

100% planted (trees: 8800 of 8800)

The area is located between Merseburg and Leipzig near the country road B181 on the edge of the village of Wallendorf. The 15-hectare site is a former dump, which was covered with sewage sludge and soil shortly after the turnaround. Analysis have shown that the potential hazard of the deposits can be estimated as low.

The Wallendorf dump is to be transformed in a nature-oriented and location-appropriate manner and "returned" to nature. To this end, we divide the area into individual sections and observe their development. After Wallendorf I and II, we will reforest the southwestern part with various tree species. The experiences so far have shown that maple is better suited to soil conditions (high nitrogen content, drought) than oak. After having consulted the responsible forestry and nature conservation authority we plant maple, wild cherry, linden and hornbeam. By planting additional tree species, we not only test their suitability for the site, but also increase biodiversity in this region.

Due to the strong growth of nettles, thistles and grasses, we must cultivate the area on an ongoing basis, especially during the first years after planting. The Deutsche Postcode lottery promotes the project with 10,000 euros. This ensures the financing of the care without having to increase the tree prices. The 1,5 hectare is planted with a total of 7,500 trees. Online is shown to be 20% more, so that we have a buffer to be able to compensate in the case of failures (eg. due to drought).
