Transforming a parking lot into a forest.

Kragh & Berglund have transformed Hvidovre hospitals parking lot into a forest.  Working with stormwater delay and planting of 150 new trees we are now intercepts 614.000 L stormwater and accumulates 17 ton CO2 in the planted tree mass. In 20 years the Hospital parking lot make a positive difference with ca. 120 trees, intercepts 4.940.000 L water and accumulates 140 ton CO2. It should be a political goal to transform all the plain parking lots in Denmark to forests with parking. KB are supporting the “Denmark are planting trees” Saturday on TV2.
