Trees for Lurë is a non-governmental, non-profit organization founded in 2019 with a mission to help with reforestation of the most damaged areas of the Lurë-Dejës Mt. National Park.
Our Reforestation project is 90% executed by the local team, this includes site preparation and planting the saplings. The team consists of 60% men and 50% women, usually whole families participate during our operations. Volunteers are invited for the remaining 10% of planting, only weekend events.
Our Tree nursery is located in Fushë Lurë at 1 100 a.s.m.l. and can produce 20,000 saplings per year. It provides additional job opportunities for the local community. We grow Pinus nigra, Pinus Peuce and Abies alba saplings using seeds collected from the national park. Our saplings fulfill all requirements for planting in the highest protected areas of the Lurë-Dejës Mt. National Park.
