Restore Trees in Somalia

by World Care Trust

Summary

Somalia and Somaliland's forest cover is less than 7% and Mount Somalia and Somaliland Forest constitutes some of the most significant reserves of remaining forestland in the country. Somalia and Somaliland has lost about 90% of its forest cover through various illegal activities such as timber harvesting or charcoal burning. World Care Trust will support both governments of those countries to plant more than 10 million trees in the next 5 years.

Challenge

Somalia and Somaliland's forest cover is less than 7% and Mount Somalia and Somaliland Forest constitutes some of the most significant reserves of remaining forestland in the country. Somalia and Somaliland has lost about 90% of its forest cover through various illegal activities such as timber harvesting or charcoal burning. World Care Trust will support both governments of those countries to plant more than 10 million trees in the next 5 years.

Solution

The tree planting will be carried out by the volunteer members of World Care Trust and other community groups, who are mostly smallholder farmers committed to protecting their local environment and helping to combat climate change. They will establish nurseries and raise seedlings until they are ready to plant out in the forest. The trees planted will be indigenous trees. Transporting millions of seedlings to deforested areas will be a huge task.

Long-Term Impact

Trees are an expression of sacred life. They generate oxygen, beautify, provide shade, provide homes, and help capture rain water, support bio-diversity and everything else mentioned above. They have been an integral part of every culture and tradition that human kind has evolved. Trees, analogous to being with nature, have been an immense source of peace. Forests are further the homes of so many indigenous species, whose loss would be critical for the balance of the eco-system.
