Help restore nature with TreeClicks
Planting trees is the best way to combat climate change. Millions of healthy trees are needed to cool the earth. That is why we plant trees all over the world through various forest projects. The programs focus on reforestation and agroforestry.
Reforestation: planting trees in deforested areas
TreeClicks supports reforestation projects in Australia and the Amazon. Reforestation involves planting new trees in deforested areas. Think of tropical forests that have been cleared for soy or palm oil plantations. Reforestation will naturally restore the area by replanting native trees and shrubs.
The importance of reforestation
Every year 6.5 million hectares of forest disappear from our earth, which is the equivalent of 17 football fields per minute. This gigantic amount of forest clearing threatens the biodiversity, ecosystems and habitats of both animals and humans. The ecosystem is restored by planting trees in previously wooded areas. Nature grows back and thus biodiversity is revived. Do you want to support a reforestation project? Enter your choice below.
Agroforestry, a sustainable form of agriculture
Via TreeClicks you can support an agroforestry project in Tanzania. Agroforestry is a sustainable combination of forestry and agriculture: farmers grow food as well as trees and shrubs on one piece of land. Trees provide shelter for crops, provide natural water regulation and aid in soil recovery. The different plants together form a healthy habitat for wild animals, creating a richer biodiversity.
Agroforestry as an alternative to monoculture
Agroforestry is a sustainable alternative to monoculture. In this agricultural method, farmers only grow one crop and as a result the soil is increasingly depleted. Hardly any nature grows on the poor soil and this is at the expense of biodiversity. Agroforestry helps in the recovery of the depleted agricultural land and prevents nature from suffering under agriculture. Want to contribute to sustainable agricultural developments?
