Before planting a tree, we cultivate the land that has been completely deforested will require a lot of effort in addition to planting – like removing shrubs, grasses and weeds – before it can be turned back into a forest.
By contrast a land considered a “degraded forest” is one where not all trees have been cut, and where biodiversity is still present. This means that spontaneous regeneration can kick in, assisting the tree planting efforts and making the whole restoration process faster and cheaper.
To maximize the impact, our partner will determine the most appropriate species of a tree to plant that are relevant to a specific area of the tree inhabitation. Popular species include Mahogany, Rosewood, Teak and Eucalyptus.
The reforestation initiative is helping to fight create more jobs, improve local economies, and combat climate change by planting trees.
Our tree-planting project will not only establish healthy forests but will make a measurable impact for local farmers and communities, who will be able to generate a lasting income. The pollutants captured by each tree will also improve health, providing oxygen and fresh air for the communities they surround.
