Did you know F&T has a forest?
Together we have planted 713 trees of 28 varieties, and offset 439.46 Tons of CO2.
In our commitment to sustainability, we are contributing to reforestation projects all over the world by planting trees with Tree-Nation. Employees are awarded trees that are planted on their behalf to a chosen reforestation project. Some of the projects we have contributed to include:
The Eden Project is helping to protect and create a reforested buffer zone that is vital to protect animal habitat.
Forest Garden Program, Senegal
This Trees for the Future agroforestry project partners with local farmers in Senegal. The project's local technicians train 500 farmers on sustainable land management practices, develop tree nurseries, and plant 2,000 trees per farmer for a total amount of 1,000,000 trees resulting in hundreds of sustainable forest gardens that will rejuvenate the region, along with creating food security and revenue for the farmers.
Usambara Biodiversity Conservation, Tanzania
Preserving Biodiversity in the Eastern Arc Mountains rain forest is the primary goal of this project.
The Adivasi Bhatra, Gond and Abhuj Maria tribes rely on forests for food security and livelihood through the collection of forest produces. The project involves the planting of highly valued native trees in various villages, with the goal of helping restore forests, and enhance ecosystem services and rural economy.
