Atmosmare’s forestation project in Lieto, South West Finland combines Baltic Sea protection and carbon dioxide removal. Our project area is an old steep field next to a small river. Such an area is not well suited for agricultural use due to heavy nutrient runoff and was selected as our test area. We have planted oak, birch, spruce and have let nature do her share. Our project area has reduced nutrient runoff and has removed carbon dioxide from atmosphere since 2008.
