Alicja and Mariela founded SilviBio in Autumn 2019 to mitigate the climate crisis through products designed to increase tree seed germination and seedling survival. In particular, our products minimise the harmful effects of water scarcity on tree seeds and seedlings. Given increasing governmental and private tree planting commitments alongside growing commercial demand for sustainable timber, maximising the number of trees that successfully germinate and survive past their adolescent seedling phase is paramount to crafting a more sustainable future.
SilviBio's role is to be one of the myriad of flagstones that will pave this pathway to a more equitable and environmentally conscientious world.
