Eden Reforestation Projects: Recreating healthy forests by planting 100 million trees per year

description

An effort to plant millions of trees each year

The Problem

The destruction of healthy forest systems causes many different problems. Trees provide a habitat for animals, they purify water sources, they control flooding, and they help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. When farmers can’t grow anything their farms fail and they are often displaced.

The Solution

Eden Reforestation Projects works to return control over threatened forests back to local communities. They start by hiring the local villagers to plant trees. This gives the local villagers a decent income, so they can provide for their families again. As the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests begin to emerge and the negative effects of deforestation begin to disappear. The organization claims to plant millions of trees each month through its projects.
