Trees provide a wide range of products such as timber, fruit, fuel, fodder and secondary income opportunities such as forestry, wood industries and bee keeping. They also provide carbon sequestration, erosion control, watershed retention, soil fertility, animal habitat and shade.
Empowering local individual and communities to sustainably manage their planted forests and obtain benefit for their families and community from the use of these resources is a primary goal of the Trees4Trees™ program.
With our strategic education and skills development approach, Trees4Trees™ is developing local leaders and advocates that can articulate a clear vision and the means to achieve it, for the benefit of individuals and their communities through the implementation of good forestry practices.
The establishment of mutually beneficial partnerships with local communities and households, to harness the social and economic potential of sustainable forest management and utilization, is central to the program and its success.
