Collaborations

Unleashing synergies: The power of cooperations

Our strategy was clear when BaumInvest AG was founded: successive, appropriate growth – at all levels. 

It is important to us that we continue to develop and generate sustainable added value that can be measured. Thanks to continuous research, we have now become well-known for our innovative reforestation concept.

However, we do not rely solely on our own expertise: Since our founding, we have built up a large network of experts, because it is clear to us:

Together we can achieve even more!

BIODIVERSITY MONITORING WITH THE SENCKENBERG INSTITUTE

Since 2009, biodiversity monitoring has been carried out on the reforestation and natural forest areas of BaumInvest in cooperation with the Senckenberg Institute in Frankfurt.

Here, comparative data on the amphibian and reptile population is collected, which provides information on which species are re-establishing themselves in the area through the conversion of pastureland into forest.

Within only nine years, the species diversity of the amphibian and reptile population could be increased from 20 to 90 species. That is an enormous success!

THE FORESTRY DEPARTMENT WITHIN UNIVERSITY OF FREIBURG

The close cooperation with Forestry Scientists from the University of Freiburg has resulted in numerous new insights and suggestions for the sustainable management of our reforestation.

Long-term research projects have developed, such as the project on the “Development of a Management System for Tropical Mixed Afforestation” funded by the German Federal Foundation for the Environment (DBU), or a research experiment on agroforestry that investigates interactions between forest trees in the cultivation of crops.

The combination of science and practice brings us one step further in our knowledge every day and thus consolidates the foundation of our economic system.

INSTITUTO TECHNOLOGICO DE COSTA RICA (TEC) AND UNIVERSIDAD DE COSTA RICA

Within the last few years, numerous students from the fields of Forestry and Geography from both universities in Costa Rica have based their final thesis research by collaborating with BaumInvest.

The exchange of ideas between the students, accompanying professors and our forestry team always leads to innovative adaptations for the management of our areas and each data collection is a new building block of knowledge for the system.

COLLEGE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT EBERSWALDE

By now, about ten students of the Bachelor’s degree programme International Forest Economy Management have completed a thesis or their internship abroad at the BaumInvest fincas in Costa Rica. The stimulating exchange with the students enlivens the daily work routine with new insights from current research.

And we are also putting this into practice together: Through an internship of several months by two students, the NFCP trail – a forest experience and education trail – has been created on our Finca La Virgen in Costa Rica. This path leads through both the reforestation and the natural forest and offers an impressive nature experience.

BaumInvest is one of the first organizations to join the global network for the restoration of natural ecosystems. The initiative was founded by the Crowther Lab at ETH Zurich to actively promote exchange between science and practice.
