Assisting Reforestation and Socio-Eco Regeneration in the Garden Route

Precious Tree Project is a small local non-profit initiative that concentrates on creating patches of Forest, by planting indigenous and endemic Forest Trees in The Garden Route. We`re on a mission to grow & plant millions of indigenous & endemic trees in the Garden Route; while addressing job creation, local economic & community development, social upliftment, preservation of local animal life, climate change and sustainability.

We concentrate on creating bio-mimicked patches of indigenous forests as we plant out endemic forest trees along the Garden Route. The Garden Route, although lush with vegetation, has about 50% of its indigenous forest left. Our long term goal is to improve that figure significantly. By planting different species of indigenous forest trees in “bio-mimicked” mixed lots, we are emulating the wondrous biosphere of a mature indigenous Forest.

Each one of us has an impact upon earth and our environment. You can lessen this impact and give back with a precious gift to the world. Sponsoring the planting of an indigenous tree contributes towards the lives of future generations, compensates for your greenhouse gas emissions and begins to off-set your carbon footprint.

When you sponsor a tree you help to cool the world, clean the air, improve the soil, clean water sources and create a “home” for so much life. When a forest is created and and particularly as it matures, these benefits expand exponentially and become a wondrously complex biosphere for current and future generations to enjoy.

As a non-profit organisation we rely on your sponsorship so get involved and help us achieve our vision. Have a question? Contact us.
