Buy a tree … grow a forest

Simply click on the Buy a Tree button and select an option. By buying a tree, you help grow a forest. Every tree sponsored goes towards regenerating and expanding natural endemic forest areas along the Garden Route.  However, you are doing way more than that  …..

 

By sponsoring a tree and expanding our indigenous forest areas, you are also contributing to: 

  • Sustainable harvesting and propagation of rare and common indigenous Knysna Forest Trees.
  • A carbon ‘sink’ off-set against your modern lifestyle, albeit fairly unmeasurable at this stage.
  • Local community empowerment and job creation for the unemployed.
  • The creation of a tree planting programme for local schools (including food bearing trees).
  • The growth of existing small ‘organic’ local indigenous tree growing businesses.
  • The development of new mini satellite nurseries along the Garden Route to support our vision.
  • The development of a Tree Removal Program for non-indigenous trees (which creates jobs and provides firewood).
  • The growth and development of small local ‘vermiculture’ (earthworm) businesses along the Garden Route.
  • General peace of mind that somewhere in the world you are positively influencing future life for this planet.
  • Contributing to the growth of the biosphere’s natural balancing system.
  • Continued care of the newly planted saplings to ensure survival and growth (currently we have a 95 percent success rate).
