We need to protect the our healthy forests now for the immediate climate security they provide, but we also plant a diversity of trees to restore lost forests on degraded landscapes.
The strong interlocking roots of mangrove forests hold soils in place against waves and flooding, but these critical ecosystems are threatened. We work with communities to grow and restore mangroves on Zanzibar’s fragile coast-lines.
We plant a wide diversity of trees in degraded landscapes to bring back the lost forests for future generations. Trees are important allies in the fight for a climate secure future, and although tree planting does not have an immediate climate impact within 10-15 years newly restored forests begin to draw a significant amount of carbon out of the atmosphere.
The coastal forest of Eastern Africa is rated highest worldwide for ecological diversity, and 40% of this forest type is found in the coastal regions of Tanzania. We work with local partners to establish community-owned and operated tree nurseries, growing and planting over 30 species of trees for restoration, food production and income generation.
