How do I become forest shareholder?
To buy one or more shares click at “Forest Share Now” in the menu bar at the left or on the button “Buy a share” top right. Both lead to an overview map of our forests, characterized by the round symbols of white trees on green background. After clicking on an icon a detail of the respective forest area will open. Here you can select your personal plot. Already reserved lots are filled with a circle or with the logo of a sponsor. After a click on an empty plot a window will open and the purchase process can be started. If you want to buy ONE share, go to "Checkout" and follow the further instructions.
If you want to buy MORE shares, go to "Buy More" and select another plot. You can also choose plots from different forest areas by clicking at "Overview map" in the menu bar at the left. Then the general map reappears and you can select additional shares. Finally, go to "Checkout", fill out the form and submit the order.
A few minutes after submitting your order you receive an email with an activation link and the prompt to click to confirm your order. Should the link not be activated within 8 hours, the order will expire. The e-mail also contains the account information for payment of the forest share. You will be asked to remit the amount due for your purchase within 14 days to the specified bank account. If payment is not received within 14 days, your order will forfeit and the selected plot will be released.
When your payment is received, your stock order will be sent by post to the specified shipping address. Additionally, you receive by e-mail a personal stock code with which you can edit the data of your plot at the Forest Shares Web page.

WARNING: You acquire no shareholder rights, because forest shares do not constitute a share for the purposes of company law! The forest share is rather a symbolic contribution to improving the CO2 balance.


Is the forest share issued in my name?
In the process of completing your order you specify a client and a stock holder. There you can freely specify the inscriptionof the share. This means you can determine whether yourself ore someone else will be the owner whose name appears in the caption. If you want the shares unlabeled just leave blank the corresponding fields.


How do I order shares for different owners?
Within an order you can create arbitrarily many issues of the various forest areas, but only with the same client and owner data. We please you to initiate a new order if you want to specify different owners or labels for individual shares.


What information will appear on the reserved plot?
You can specify in your order if you want to remain anonymous or which data is to be published. You can change this setting later at any time by login with the share code or through us.


What can be the reason being that I won’t receive confirmation e-mail?
Unfortunately there seemto be spam problems with some e-mail services to give. Above all orders that were made with an AOL e-mail address appeared to receive no confirmation email, so they can not be activated. Unfortunately, these orders are then lost! Please pursue your order the by using another e-mail address, or by phone. There was no problem so far with Web.de or gmx.de.


The website and the order are not displayed properly. Why?
For correct representation of the website and the ordering process you need an updated Flash player. You can download it free at www.adobe.de
Where can I buy the forest share?
So far, the purchase is possible via the Internet and DAZ. Soon the purchase of the share will be possible via other channels, eg in tourist information offices or hotels.
Can one give away the forest share, too?
Yes, this is possible.
Because you can specify with your order a new holder and the individual labeling, the stock may be issued by us to the correct name. Likewise, a different delivery address can be entered if you want to send the forest share directly to the recipient.

Can I subsequently change the data of my plot?
Yes, this is possible at any point In the menu “Forest share now” you find the button “Login” next to the maps of the individual forest areas.The shareholder can then log in with the share code that is printed on the forest share and he can edit previously entered data.

Sylvia Bretschneider Sylvia Bretschneider
Landtagspräsidentin Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Klimaschutz fängt bei jedem Einzelnen mit dem Bewusstsein für eigene Handlungen und deren Folgen an. In der Waldaktie Savanne sehe ich die Chance, einen kleinen persönlichen Beitrag zum Schutz der Umwelt und ein Stück gelebte Solidarität zwischen Nord und Süd zu leisten.

Till BackhausDr. Till Backhaus
Landwirtschafts- und Umweltminister Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern werden Klimawälder seit 2007 gepflanzt. Urlauber und Bürger aus MV haben aus der Idee Waldaktie einen großen Erfolg gemacht. Gute Ideen und einfache Lösungen finden immer eine breite Akzeptanz. Aber Klimaschutz braucht weltweite Aktivitäten. Darum unterstütze ich gerne die Waldaktie der Savanne in Togo und wünsche ihr viel Erfolg.

Ole Schwabe Ole Schwabe

Ein innovatives Projekt, welches uns allen die Möglichkeit gibt, für Mensch und Natur aktiv einzutreten und in unsere globale Zukunft zu investieren. Der Klimawandel wird sich nicht an lokale Grenzen halten und so müssen wir ihm heute schon aktiv begegnen. Am besten in einer Art und Weise, die auch noch den Menschen in einer der ärmsten Regionen der Welt nachhaltig hilft, sich selbst zu helfen. Ich wünsche uns allen, dass Ansätze wie die Waldaktie Schule machen und wie all die kleinen Bäumchen in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern und Togo Wurzeln schlagen.
