Germany | People heading to Harz NP, other forests to plant trees to fight climate change

SCHIERKE, Germany — Several retirees, a few millennials, a local couple and a technology specialist who saved overtime hours to take a day off from work gathered around a pile of birch twigs sprouting leaves on one end and a tangle of fine roots at the other.

One by one, they grabbed a bundle of the seedlings and picked their way through snow-clad fallen branches, searching for holes that had been dug into the black earth on the edge of the Harz National Park in the heart of Germany.
