The Robinia – tree of the year 2020

A polarizing piece of nature

The Dr. Silvius Wodarz Foundation has chosen the Common Robinia as tree of the year. We are particularly pleased about this, as it is one of the most important plants for bees in the early summer. Its white flowers have an intense bergamot scent and attract thousands of bees.

The foundation wants to draw attention to the polarizing characteristics of the Robinia with its election. As it grows very quickly, it can be used for rapid planting. On the other hand, it overgrows other plants with its rapid growth.

The Dr. Silvius Wodarz Foundation presents the robinia in detail on its website and has a large number of beautiful pictures available:
