Precious Tree Project
Indigenous Reforestation and Regeneration in the Garden Route
We concentrate on creating patches of forests as we plant out indigenous and endemic Forest trees in 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. We plant different species of trees in “bio-mimicked” mixed lots, 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. Gifting and thereby 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, these benefits expand exponentially and become a wondrously complex biosphere for current and future generations to enjoy.
