Currently, Best Planter cooperates with the Lithuanian Agricultural Advisory Service. We also participate in projects with Lithuanian schools so that we can share about forests and their secrets with the youngest inhabitants of the Earth.
By cooperating with different organizations, we can achieve one of our goals - to educate the public about the forests around us.

Starting this autumn, KMAIK and UAB SKOGRAN, which works in the field of forestry, will start a close mutually beneficial cooperation. One of the goals of this cooperation is to acquaint college students with work in the field of forestry from a practical point of view, with the specifics of the work organization of a company working in this field.
According to the tripartite agreement, students will be admitted to a production practice for forest planting and maintenance work in Lithuania, with the opportunity to work abroad during the summer, at the same time encouraging students to choose this young, energetic and strongly growing company as their future employer.

Forest breeding - where to start?

The forest is important for society both economically and socially. After the forest owners have cut down the forest, it is mandatory to restore it within three years. However, not only forest owners have the opportunity to plant a forest. It is also possible to plant a forest on agricultural land with the support of the European Union. We will discuss support options and give advice on how to plant the forest correctly.
What should you do firstly?:
- Those who wish to plant a forest using EU support must register their land holdings in the Agricultural and Rural Business Register of the Republic of Lithuania.
- Apply to the National Land Service (NŽT) at the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and obtain a permit to plant a forest (if it is planned to plant a forest on non-forestry land).
- If the land is managed by common, partial or joint ownership, the consent of the co-owners, certified by a notary, is required.
- Have a greening and thinning project prepared and coordinated with the State Forestry Agency.
