More than 40,000 fruit trees grow in Wiesbaden, but when these old trees are no longer maintained, they die an untimely death. Naturefund cares about these often forgotten trees and works to cultivate both the old trees and new ones of the old types.

Threatened Paradise, Right Under Our Noses

In the state capital of Wiesbaden, there are more than 40,000 fruit trees on meadow orchards. If the old fruit trees are no longer cultivated, they gradually die and with them, well-adapted native varieties disappear.

For hundreds of years, many old fruit varieties have been produced and they represent an important gene resource for future generations. In addition, old apple varieties are particularly well-tolerated by allergy sufferers.

Meadow orchards also have an important ecological significance. They provide habitat for many endangered animals and plants. More than 1,900 species of animals can be found there. Of these, 90% are insects such as grasshoppers, bees, bumblebees and rare butterflies. In addition, 60 different bird species breed here, including the Green Woodpecker, the Little Owl and the Nuthatch for examples.

For only 5€, you can protect 1 m² of meadows for the long term. For 25€, you will be planting a tree seedling of an old fruit variety to ensure the longevity and health of native species.
