Nestlé to plant 100 trees to encourage cross-pollination at Malta park
Nestlé Malta will plant over 100 trees at the Fort Rinella nature park in Kalkara, in partnership with local NGO Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna, and permanently take on the upkeep and care for the trees.
A variety of trees, including several oak trees, almond trees, and pine, which will encourage cross-pollination, were selected for planting.
Also to be planted are indigenous olive and carob trees
The trees are also meant to enhance this popular heritage venue and park.
This initiative, which is taking place in place of Nestlé Malta’s regular corporate Christmas gift-giving, is in line with Nestlé’s global goal to plant 200 million trees by 2030.
Wirt Artna chairman and CEO Mario Farrugia says the collaboration with Nestlé is a crucial step towards the involvement of key players in the private sector that would benefit both the cultural and the natural heritage,
