Within the last few years, Vietnam has lost a lot of trees to deforestation.
Below is a summary of the situation outlining why tree planting is so important.
*Primary forests are untouched native forests in original condition.
Vietnam’s tropical forests support rich biodiversity and a precious, sensitive ecosystem. 25 million people depend on forest products for subsistence.
Over-exploitation of the land has endangered many native species of plants and animals, and increased the impact of natural disasters. Planting trees here will help conserve threatened species, regulate climate, provide economic stability for local villagers, and protect watershed areas that serve the community on a daily basis.
Our experienced partners in Vietnam work hard to ensure tree-planting is both environmentally and economically sustainable. By planting native fruit trees and replenishing endangered timber species, we can restore balance to the area’s flora and fauna while educating the local community about forest conservation. The project will create jobs for villagers (including site clearance, planting, tending, protection), and provide long-term income through collecting fruits of Son Tra trees.
To maximize the impact of your donation, One Tree Planted’s partner will determine the most appropriate species of tree to plant, depending on the time of year. Threatened native species that will be planted include: Kim Giao, Bach Xanh, Gioi, and Tram den, as well as Forkienia timber trees and Son Tra fruit trees.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit charity based in Vermont, USA. They plant trees around the world and every dollar raised helps plant one tree. OTP works with amazing reforestation organizations around the world that need financial support to help them get more trees planted.
