Short summary of the initiative (<100 words)
The agricultural sercice supply of Mr. Timo Kirn offers a tree care service in the northwest area of Stuttgart , Sersheim, where some smallholders have their extensive fruit tree plantations. After the pruning period the prunings are left on the field and gathered beside the field for 1-5 months. Afterwards they are chipped beside the field and then transported to the local heating power plant or to nurseries to heat their greenhouses.
