Trees for MTB World Cup 2018 in Stellenbosch

A world class mountain bike race requires world class trees. And that’s exactly what they received from us!

“The 2018 UCI World Cup series kicks off at a new venue – stunning Stellenbosch, the mountain biking mecca of South Africa and a favourite venue for riders from around the world.” – http://worldcupstellenbosch.com/about/

The mountain bikers of Stellenbosch felt that some of the epic trails needed some epic trees to go with it and contacted Trees SA. We helped to select, supply and install the optimal indigenous species to suit the soil and climate of Stellenbosch. The Forest Elder (Nuxia floribunda) was the winning choice. A total of 8 trees were planted along the trail of which 2 were donated by Trees SA. 

We are currently monitoring the trees to ensure that they are flourishing in time for the big event.

Join us on 10 March as we see the world’s best compete in one of the most beautiful countries (with the most beautiful trees)!

UPDATE: 11 March 2018

The World Cup was a roaring success and our trees posed a nice obstacle for the racing cyclists as they had to navigate the low branches of the trees up the steep slopes of Stellenbosch Mountain.
Below is a compilation of some photos on the day of the race.
