An update from our tree planting partners in Tanzania on recent success and future plans.
All our Tree Planting Projects create sustainable livelihoods. All the Trees absorb CO2, offset carbon emissions and contribute towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
All our Tree Planting Projects are ForestNation certified, which means they promise:
All Trees are registered with the UNEP’s Planet for the Planet Trillion Tree campaign.
The Trees all absorb CO2 and offset carbon emissions and create sustainable livelihoods.
To use agroforestry techniques where trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland to increase natural reforestation and biodiversity as nature intended.
To focus on sustainable livelihoods and contribute towards at least the following SDGs:
To work towards a future where all of the trees we plant throughout their life contribute to all the 17 of the UN’s SDGs
To make follow ups and send monthly updates to ForestNation with photos and/or videos.
Version 2 certification coming soon:
Carbon credits for trading. You can report all the trees you plant with ForestNation for you CSR. Trees absorb carbon even without “carbon credit certificates”. We are working hard to give you this added financial benefit.
Drone timelapse aerial photography. This is awesome and entertaining proof that will be coming soon.
ForestNation is a social business. We combine commercial, social and environmental goals equally. We empower individuals, companies and organizations to fulfill their own missions whilst growing a forest and creating sustainable livelihoods. We believe that giving back to Mother Earth should be fun and inspiring.
CO2: A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of carbon dioxide per year on average throughout its lifetime.
O2: Trees breathe out oxygen 4 to 5 times the amount of CO2 they absorb each year.
Land reforested: 1000 trees per hectare is a general reforestation best practice.
Jobs created: It takes 68 hours for 1 caretaker to create 10000 tree seedlings and 1 hour per day to maintain them. That translates to 40 hours of work for every 1000 trees.
For every 10,000 trees planted at least double that will germinate naturally within 5 years providing for generations to come. Also the forest provides habitat & shade for animals, natural resources for locals and adds to the beauty of the region.
