The need for reforestation is global and always changing, so here is where we highlight where trees are most needed now. Every month a new project is selected so you can make the best possible impact. Our current spotlight initiative is planting fruit trees in India. India is recognized as one of seventeen "Megadiverse" countries in the world, home to 8% of the world's flora and fauna.
This tree-planting project will establish a healthy tree canopy and make a measurable impact for local communities who will benefit from access to nutritious fruit and income if they sell the fruit. The pollutants captured by each tree will also improve health, providing oxygen and fresh air for the communities they surround. Thank you so much for your support of healthy forests and communities! 🌲
These fruit trees will help small and marginalized farmers increase their families' nutrition and income, while fighting pollution, conserving water, and preventing soil erosion.
Three years after planting, each fruit tree will help generate additional income at an average of US$10 per tree per year. These trees will considerably reduce hunger, malnutrition and poverty in the villages and communities where they are planted.
A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates about this project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
India's megadiverse forests contain thousands of species, but this project will focus specifically on fruit trees that will thrive in harmony with existing ecosystems. Species include Mangifera indica, Psidium guajava, Artocarpus heterophyllus, Prunus domestic, Prunus persica, Prunus armeniaca, Musa, Citrus lemon, Phyllanthus emblica, Punica granatum, Syzygium cumini, Moringa oleifera, Annona reticulata, Limonia acidissima, and Carica papaya.
