First Social Friday in 2023

On March 31st we started the new Social Friday year fully motivated and planted more than 700 trees in the Waldviertel together with wald4leben.

Austria is one of the most densely forested countries in Europe. Due to the increased drought in recent years and the rising temperatures as a result of climate change, the forests in this country - and above all the spruce - came under strong pressure. So weakened, they were easy food for the bark beetle. Especially in the Waldviertel, Weinviertel and Mühlviertel, large stands of spruce were destroyed and had to be completely cleared. The wald4leben team is now making sure that these forest areas are reforested so that the climate protection effect of the forest can take effect again.

Since sustainability is a matter close to our hearts at Marketagent, it was immediately clear to us that we wanted to actively support this important initiative. On 31.3. the time had finally come: 13 agents defied wind and weather and planted 720 young trees in the Waldviertel. We are super proud and happy that the oak, pine and maple seedlings will grow into a stately Marketagent grove in the years to come.
