As part of our ongoing commitment to helping businesses create positive environmental and social impacts, we’re thrilled to launch three new tree planting projects on the More Trees platform, in partnership with Eden Reforestation. These vibrant projects will help restore local ecosystems, combat climate change and support local communities. Let’s take a closer look.
Pokhara, Nepal: Restoring the Himalayan Gateway
Our first new project takes us to the scenic city of Pokhara – known for its unobstructed views of the Annapurna range. This project plans to restore several areas in the Kaski District by planting native tree species including Pinus Patula, Rhododendron Arboreum and Cryptomeria Japonica.
This corporate tree planting project not only focuses on reforestation but also shines a light on gender equality. Women’s employment is prioritised in the tree planting process; providing local women with a variety of rewarding livelihood options, from managing nurseries and leading teams to restoring the local environment.
- Site coordinates: 27°46’14.03” N, 84° 5’33.87”E
- Tree species: Pinus Patula, Rhododendron Arboreum, and Cryptomeria Japonica
- Climate: Warm and temperate
La Muralla, Honduras: Reversing Devastating Destruction
Next, we head to La Muralla, Honduras – an area known for its remarkable beauty, rich cultural heritage and abundant biodiversity. Unfortunately, its forests have been devastated by deforestation caused by climate change, fires, urban sprawl, illegal logging and disease-carrying pine beetles. Our Honduras tree planting project plans to reverse this by replenishing degraded forests with a variety of native tree species and protecting existing flora and fauna to enhance local biodiversity.
In addition to the environmental benefits of our Honduras project, this initiative also has a remarkable social impact. Local communities are being employed and empowered to help this project run, flourish and succeed.
- Site coordinates: 15°02’05.9” N, 86°44’52.4”W
- Forest type: Native (Pinus oocarpa)
- Elevation: 975m
Canitoan-Pagatpat, Philippines: Empowering Local Communities
Finally, we journey to Canitoan-Pagatpat in the Philippines, where we’re joining a unique community-focused reforestation project. Planting native tree species including the Tectona Grandis, Pterocarpus Indicus and Cordia Myxa, this initiative will restore tropical deciduous forest in this water-dependent area.
However, this project is not just about trees. By reforesting the forests and bringing biodiversity back to the area, the Canioan community will receive legal title to the land from the local government – seeing them own land for the first time in their history and allowing them to become stewards of its future.
- Site coordinates: 8°27’9”N 124°34’51”
- Forest type: Tropical deciduous (Tectona Grandis, Pterocarpus Indicus, Cordia Myxa, Garuga Floribunda Decne and Shorea Contorta)
- Site Size: 1,360 hectares
