Pruning Trees makes them grow bigger
Growing a new rainforest involves so much work if it is going to be successful. And we love this because it creates the opportunity to make fair pay jobs for community members who otherwise would be struggling to find work. Plus, we educate about sustainable management of the trees we plant on their own farms along the way. It really is a labor of love and awareness grows along with the trees.
For example, we have recently returned to manage over 4000 trees that are 6 years old in order to assure that they keep growing in the most robust way possible. By trimming off the lower branches, we let in more sunlight and protect the growing forest from getting too shady. This means the understory also keeps growing which draws in additional carbon dioxide in the soils not to mention attracts bees and butterflies and pollinators, so impiortant to our very survival. The soils continue to grow more fertile fromt he naural decay of the trimmed branches and leaves or biomass. And the canopy of the trees continues to grow even taller and the trees themselves even fatter in girth.
Our workers see and participate in the process and we love to educate in this way, hands on. We guarantee your trees for 25 years and beyond. And we feel confident in this proimise because we are creating real relationships with the families and the forests we are growing. Everyone gets paid and is accountable for every counted tree and certainly, we overplant each zone to make sure our tree numbers stay on track.
We appreciate our workers and our sponsors and truly we love to do the dirty work! We love Trees! THANK YOU!!!
Branches and Leaves decompose and create fertility
Fair pay jobs for workers stops deforestation
Look at the rainforest we have regrown together!
