HOW WE REAFFOREST
TREES SHOULDN'T JUST BE PLANTED.
THEY HAVE TO BE GROWN.
Harsh dry periods combined with the extreme sunlight intensity in the tropics make it very hard for seedlings of most species to survive their first year. Moreover, many of the species we reintroduce can only survive under a canopy similar to a rainforest. Such that once a forest is clearcut, those species simply disappeared from the region.
Our network of 2,500 beneficiaries, alongside the innovative practices we implement, helps us alleviate these challenges. Our beneficiaries provide the care required for seedlings to reach maturity and the pigeon peas (Cajanus cajan) seeds we supply to them build the much-needed canopy.
