Trees for Lurë is non-governmental, non-profit organization founded in 2019 with mission to reforest 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 remaining 10% of planting, only weekend events.
Our Tree nursery is located in Fushë Lurë at 1 100 a.s.m.l. and produces 15 000 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 highest protected areas of the national park.
