Office for Tree Migration (OTM)  

Trees are `rooted`. Though longterm observations have shown, that trees actually do move throughout the landscape and regions, just very, very slow and over decades. Climate change appears to happen faster than the trees can escape to more suitable areas in order to survive. Scientists are discussing “assisted migration” in order to help speeding up the process of tree adaption.

The Office for Tree Migration (OTM) relates to the need of trees and other plants to move and migrate. It focuses on transformations in nature that are happening too slow to be seen with the naked eye, but yet are crucial for the ecology on our planet. At the same time it can be considered as a metaphor for the general need of migration as one fundamental resource of survival.
