Restoring habitats in the US with GreenTrees
The GreenTrees Reforestation Project is a reforestation project located across the Mississippi Delta in the USA. The project helps to restore habitats and clean water, as well as supports the local economy by offering alternative revenue streams. As well as absorbing more CO2 emissions from the atmosphere, this initiative increases biodiversity, helps to prevent flash flooding, and provides local communities with additional sources of income.
So far, the project has:
  • Reforested 120,000 acres of land
  • Planted 45 million trees
  • Generated an average of 500,000 carbon credits a year
Conserving forests and creating carbon credits in Canada
In recent years, wildfires have significantly impacted the lands and communities of the Tŝilhqot’in Nation in the Canadian province of British Columbia. We are helping to address this issue by working with the Tŝilhqot’in National Government to reforest areas that have either been slow to regenerate on their own or have not done so at all. As well as restoring wildfire-devastated areas, the project has the potential to deliver other benefits, including indigenous and local employment – as well as improvements in the local ecosystems.
The project will:
  • Reforest 700 hectares of indigenous lands devastated by wildfire
  • Plant an estimated 840.00 trees, all native species
  • Plant an estimated 840.00 trees, all native species
