Greening Deserts Critically
Endangered Species Research and Protection Program (
started an extra project for endangered tree species to focus on the
most important issue of global biodiversity conservation and
establish more biodiversity in habitats and forests worldwide. This
will also promote many other ecosystems, and stabilize as well as
improve the atmosphere or air, biosphere, global climate and water
cycle. The contribution of trees to the improvement of soil, life,
air and water quality should be clear to everyone. There is as much
life in a handful of soil from a rainforest as in hundreds of soccer
fields, but not so much in fields and meadows. It depends also on the
history and vegetation. The
main focus of the special species protection project for critically
endangered tree species is the building of special seed storage
facilities (boxes and cabinets) and other innovative solutions in
various areas. The exchange and sharing of experiences are
particularly important. With the Urban Greening Camp we can store and preserve seeds professionally. In the field of
Indoor Gardening and Vertical Farming we can cultivate many species
of trees, especially for the European and Mediterranean regions. We
can share seeds and plants with botanical gardens and professional
nurseries around the world. Numerous international institutions,
organizations, universities, biodiversity and plant scientists, and
tree and forest specialists have already been informed about many of
these aspects and projects in 2020.
announcement and information of the new Greening Deserts project for
critically endangered species can be shared worldwide. The project
title is 1001+Critically Endangered Tree Species Seed Storage and Tree Cultivation

The Trillion Trees Initiative will help to share the trees and seeds worldwide in the future,
especially in regions where more biodiversity is needed or trees have
become extinct or very rare. Some of the other Greening Deserts
projects and special programs can also help establish many of the
endangered tree species on which many other species depend. These
special biodiversity conservation, ecosystem restoration,
environmental greening, ecological reforestation
and species protection projects can save millions of life forms
worldwide. Healthy ecosystems like forests are habitat for countless
organisms and can save many endangered insects, fungi and microbes.
That's why Greening Deserts species conservation projects will focus
on biodiversity forests, drylands, grasslands and wetlands. Urban
greening and biodiversity in cities will be supported by the upcoming
greening, research and species protection camps.

conservationists, tree experts, botanists, tree growers, and all
friends of nature are invited to join the project, for example by
exchanging useful information or sharing constructive feedback and
resources. Of course, other experts and scientists who are able to
support the project can also join. Together
with the CES-RPP, we can set a goal to recultivate and replant
forests, typical tree landscapes, and regions with critically
endangered tree species and key plant species worldwide.

If we focus on cultivating and exchanging seedlings around the world,
we can save many tree species from extinction. If all goes well, we
can lift the critically endangered status of many trees and truly
save them by cultivating plants and sharing seeds. Other important
tasks are to show natural alternatives to pesticides, and to promote
nature-based solutions and permaculture.

gardens, nurseries, tree experts, forestry companies and tree-related
businesses should pay more attention to these factors. One big cause
of the biodiversity loss and mass mortality is deforestation and too
many monocultures. This issue is not only about the few established
tree species in forestry, it is also about many other important
plants and keystone species. With the endangered tree species that we
want to cultivate and share worldwide, thousands of other species can
be saved and protected. These trees and plants may even bring back
other species that were thought to be extinct. Biodiverse
forests, meadows and fields are the key to counteracting global
species extinction on a large scale.
of the critically endangered tree species play a particularly
important role. On the pages of Greening Deserts and affiliated
projects, you can read more about the real problems and good
solutions in almost all areas, especially how to act in a truly
efficient and sustainable way.

Environmental satellites, GIS
systems, and satellite imagery of global vegetation can also help
select the right trees for the right areas. Historical archives and
plant databases can be used to find suitable tree species for those
regions with low biodiversity, like in Europe and North Africa, where
few tree species exist and many have been lost or
forgotten—especially in relation to the approximately 60,000
tree species, of which about 10,000 are endangered and 1400 are
critically endangered.

That's why Greening Deserts has set the goal of saving the most
endangered tree species, while working together with interested
species protection organizations, tree nurseries, botanical gardens
and institutions in this area. It is not only about biodiversity
hotspots, new forests and a few more tree species, but about many
other plants, animals and ecosystems that used to have a greater
biodiversity. Biodiversity in cities and urban regions is more
important than many people think. Ecosystem and landscape experts can
help to find good places for greening and reforestation, or even for
completely new forests, such as in man-made deserts or urban concrete
jungles. Urban greening and urban forests will play an increasingly
important role over time, especially in relation to the issues of
biodiversity, global greening, health and the urban cooling aspect. 

cities are now already up to four degrees hotter than in the old
days, i.e. the
1.5 or 2 degree target has long been exceeded in some regions!

Many people around the world have died as a result of the droughts
and heat waves of recent years. The passive effects of the climate
crisis, such as environmental or natural disasters and pandemics are
underestimated, especially when it comes to poverty. Experts estimate
that over 100 million people will fall into poverty during the actual
crises. All the more reason why we need holistic solutions to the
climate crisis and global solidarity with these poor, sick and weak
people. Healthy ecosystems and a healthy environment are the basis
for the health of all life forms. Adapting to climate change and
strengthening cultures is important not only for humans but for
animal and plant species. Only together with nature we can overcome
the crises. Nature-based solutions play an increasingly important
role. One can see the Corona crisis as part of the climate crisis.

protection and environmental protection is also species
protection—and therefore human protection.

Species recovery, species conservation, and biodiversity with species
protection camps and special protection programs like the Trillion
Trees Initiative

can reduce global species extinction with appropriate international
support. The camps primarily serve to restore near-natural
ecosystems. Global greening can accelerate the peace-building process
and reduce climate change effects like global warming and air
pollution. Environmental awareness, ethical and social principles,
sustainable production and work, and human
rights and indigenous rights

are very important for future development. For years, we have been
informing organizations and institutions about Greening Deserts
projects. Requests for funding and support of these important
developments and projects have been sent several times. 

global extinction of species, lack of biodiversity and species
protection or too little species rescue in many areas also
increasingly affects human health. The current crisis and drought
years have clearly shown everyone how quickly ecosystems can collapse
or become unbalanced. The important role of missing tree species,
especially in tree-poor regions of Europe and the Mediterranean, is
greatly underestimated. Several
hundred other species can depend on each individual tree species!

Since many thousands of tree species are critically endangered and
only rarely present, hundreds of thousands of species that depend on
these trees are missing. This is one reason behind the extinction of
numerous species. Trees fulfill important functions and are key
elements of ecosystems and cycles. Climate and weather systems are
also significantly influenced and stabilized by trees and forests, as
well as all associated plants.

unfortunately still hears many limited arguments or opinions in
agriculture and forestry. Agroforestry, food forests, flowering trees
and more trees with fruits for animals and humans are possible to
combine more sustainable agriculture and ecological forestry! AI,
aquaponics, cleantech, hydroponics, greentech, permaculture
techniques and vertical farming, scientific developments or

can also help improve all these areas or sectors. Many of the long
discussed conflicts are really unnecessary, especially the land use
conflict. Think about all the space in the air, underground,
underwater and on waters. A lot of things are possible at the same
time if one is creative, willing to compromise and understanding.
Often there is simply a lack of awareness and will. If all nations
plant a few billion trees during the next years we could reach the
goal of a trillion trees extra for planet Earth easily. If the most
of the humans plant a few hundred trees in their life the humanity
could plant another trillion trees in just one generation – it
could be so easy if all humans would act together. In the meanwhile
we will push the trillion trees initiatives with good actions,
examples and projects. Many people and organizations were informed
about the Greening Deserts sustainable developments, innovative ideas
and outstanding projects.

first Urban
Greening Camp

will be located in Leipzig, Germany. The state of Saxony is a
relatively central region in Europe. Effective logistics, sustainable
working and sustainable packaging as well as shipping should not be a
problem. The founder and initiator Oliver
Gediminas Caplikas
is working hard on the concepts and projects, at the moment he
prepares a new location and the launch of a new startup. The startup
project mainly deals with palms and palm products. More about the new
project development in the next article and press release. Many
interesting developments, information and projects on the topics have
been published in scientific networks and on various platforms during
the last years. Read more on Greening Deserts official project pages.

feedback and real support is always welcome. Feel free to contact and
to connect by the social networks or other official channels.
Sustainable joint ventures, investments, partnerships and
sponsorships are always welcome.


There will be special programs in future to join and to collaborate, for example the school forests program.
