It’s tree time! The most relevant updates from a few of the projects your searches are financing:
The nurseries that your searches helped us build last year are running at full capacity! The seeds of future dry deciduous tree species are currently being put into the tubes, all in preparation for January and February. By then, the trees will have grown large enough to be planted into the earth, contributing to the creation of forest corridors (which are great for animal species such as Lemurs, who otherwise get attacked by predators when strolling through open fields). The Mangrove forests you’re also helping us plant here are looking just as splendid. They’re super easy to restore, too: All one needs to do is stick their dart-like propagules fallen from older trees into the earth. These contain the seeds and, boom, the tree starts growing. If only everything was that easy, *sigh*.
This project is our most delicious one, so to speak: we mostly plant fruit trees here. And, as you can see, they are already about one meter high after only a few months since your searches started financing this project. But the good news does not end there. Slide to the next picture. You’ll see, additional tree nurseries are being built. Soon, the seeds of more future, yummy fruit forests will grow here.
This is one of our newest projects. In fact, not even Pieter, our Tree Planting Officer, has visited it yet. And while we wait to do so, we are already getting updates from our partners. After growing for a few months in the nurseries, the trees are now being planted into the earth. These are mostly agroforestry trees, such as cacao. Farmers participating in the project will benefit not only from planting diverse forests, but from their fruits, either for their own consumption or to sell on local and international markets.
Now you: What was the most interesting update?
