WeForest

The WeForest mission is demonstrating and advocating through the planting of millions of trees that well planned reforestation can be the solution to today's biggest challenge: global warming. The organization is promoting scientific research on forests & climate while creating a movement, engaging the greatest brands and their millions of customers to act.
20,000 New Trees to Restore Community Forests
 
Nongbri Bansaranlang lives in Dympep, a small village in the remote northeast of India. For her livelihood she depends on the forests surrounding her village. But these forests are under threat. WeForest helps Nongbri and the people from 62 other villages in the East Khasi Hills region to plant trees and restore the original subtropical forest and its unique biodiversity. project reportread updates from the field
Reconnecting the Atlantic Forest, Brazil
 
WeForest plants trees to Make Earth Cooler for climate, people and planet. Trees are the best known 'technology' to cool our planet: they absorb the excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help produce clouds. The Brazil Atlantic Forest is one of the most biodiverse forests in the world but only 7% of the forest remains. To combat further forest degradation and loss of biodiversity, WeForest is planting corridors of trees between fragments of remaining forest in Pontal do Paranapanema. project reportread updates from the field
Help communities plant trees in Amhara, Ethiopia
 
In Machakel wereda, a mere 8.61% of the land area is covered by forest. Here, villagers are at the heart of our restoration efforts, which takes a holistic approach in tackling environmental threats and promotes the resilience of local people. The strategy for combatting the soil degradation involves planting indigenous trees on community land, gullies, river banks and farmland with the potential for assisted natural regeneration in the future, and planting fruit and timber trees on farms.
Help Zambian farmers reverse deforestation
 
Zambia is a country with one of the highest rate of deforestation where approximately 300,000 hectares of forest are destroyed every year. WeForest is supporting farmers to restore the native woodlands that are disappearing from the region. By employing assisted natural regeneration of Miombo woodlots (plots of native woodland on farms) and introducing economic activities such as bioenergy, fruit and honey production, local communities can restore their forests.
Combatting Desertification in Northern Ethiopia
 
This project aims to restore Tigray's dry afromontane forests, combat adverse climate change effects and build community resilience. To help conserve the native species in the dwindling forests, the communities are equipped to identify and manage restoration 'zones' on non-productive land. Community members are trained in nursery development & management as well as sustainable forestry, and given the opportunity to take part in more sustainable livelihood initiatives to increase food security.
