How are local communities helped by the Trees4Trees Program?

There are many ways that local communities participating in the Trees4Trees Program are benefited. Our objective is to help the environment by making it economically advantageous to the people who are part of the program. Here are a few of the ways that they gain from participating:

  • They get free seedlings of high value tree species  that will grow into valuable assets for them
  • They get access to fair market pricing to sell their trees when they have matured
  • They get training to optimize the value of the trees they are planting  and to help them improve their local living environment.
  • They get the improved local environmental benefit of having greater forest cover which helps to reduce erosion, keeps cleaner rivers and better air quality.
  • Some communities are the beneficiaries of seedling nurseries that Trees4Trees has sponsored. This provides an employment and high quality seedlings for use in their own newly established community forests.
