LET'S PLANT TREES
As trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Trees provide many benefits to us, every day. They offer cooling shade, block cold winter winds, attract birds and wildlife, purify our air, prevent soil erosion, clean our water, and add grace and beauty to our homes and communities. A typical tree can absorb around between 10 and 50 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.
BENEFITS OF TREES
- AIR : Trees help to clean the air we breathe
- TREES : Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters
- BIODIVERSITY : A single tree can be home to hundreds of species
- HEALTH : trees reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and improves mood
WHAT IS A SEEDBALL ?
A Seedball is a seed inside of a ball of charcoal dust mixed with some nutritious binders. The biochar coating of the ball helps protect the seed within from predators such as birds, rodents and insects and extremes of temperature until the rains arrive ! Once soaked, the seedball will help retain and prolong a moist environment around the seed to encourage germination.
Our non profit organization collaborate with a partner in Kenya that has pioneered a method of mass producing seedballs for low cost and efficient reintroduction of trees and grass species into degraded areas in Africa.
