Forests are our best defense against climate change
and in an alarming state
Deforestation shatters the ecological balance
Trees are the root of our ecosystem. They keep our climate stable, absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, regulate our water supply and provide a home to more than half of all species found on land
More than 2 billion people are depending upon forest for their daily livelihood
And: Deforestation accounts for 10% of global CO2 emissions
50% of world’s forest is already lost due to human impact
Human impacts have already led to the loss of around 50% of the world’s forests. And today, an area the size of a football pitch is still being destroyed every second. Protecting and restoring forests has never been more urgent.
Only 10% of the forests will remain intact on earth by the end of 2030.
Planting is great. Saving so much more urgent & 50x more powerful!
It’s well known the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
A mature tree not only absorbs 5X more CO2, cutting it down also releases it’s 1 and more tons of captured CO2 into the atmosphere. That makes saving a tree 50 times more important and urgent than planting one.
“Reducing deforestation and forest degradation must be part of the solution to the global climate change problem”

1 oak tree with the age between 40 to 70 years old weighs around 600kg to 1000kg of biomass and is retains 900kg to 1600 kg of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
By sponsoring this tree you will become it’s patron for the next 5 years. That will not only ensure it is saved from being cut down. It also includes a 5-year-care-package where we involve and educate the local communities to create a truly lasting alternative to current deforestation.
