10 millionth tree 3 years later
WeForest is close to planting its 20 millionth tree. Did you know that the 10th million tree was planted in the project that you support?
Indeed, the “African tulip tree” was planted in the Yewebesh village, Amhara, in November 2015. After only three years, the tree has grown to 3.15 meters which is almost 6 times its original size! Thanks to its many leaves, shading is provided in the training centre which is much appreciated by the local community members. Thank you for planting millions of trees with us!
Your support enables training framers in agroforestry
Agroforestry is a system combining tree, livestock, crop and insects in a spatial way to boost agricultural productivity and maintain ecosystem wellbeing.
In populated areas like the Machakel district which has limited land holding size, agroforestry practices are the best option to harness food production and satisfy household tree products need. From the beginning of 2018 until now, we have been able to select 263 interested model households to practice agroforestry in 6 villages. Together with your help, different cash crops, such as coffee and rhamnus, as well as fruit trees (avocado and apple) will be planted in farmers’ backyards as homegarden.
