How will I know if my trees are growing?

All the trees will be maintained by our field staff to ensure maximum survivability.

How long will it take for my trees to grow?

Saplings are planted when they reach a height of 2 ft. Within the first 2 years, the tree will grow to heights of more than 3 metres (approx. 10 ft) which reaches the understorey canopy level . To form a suitable tree canopy of more than 8 (approx. 26 ft) meters, it will take about 10 years.

What will I get for the contribution to this initiative?

All contributors will receive an e-certificate with the GPS point and a photograph of the planted tree.

Can I see the progress of my trees?

There are a few ways to do so! One would be to join us on our project. We will be able to bring you to the tree planting site where your tree has been planted. We will also update you at the end of the one year period with a photograph of the site.
