Benefits of planting trees.

ENVIRONMENTAL

Put simply, trees promote life. Not only do trees produce oxygen and sequester carbon dioxide, they also provide homes for animals, recharge groundwater, replace soil nitrates, prevent erosion, remove air pollution and more.

SOCIAL

In South Africa, there is huge disparity between ‘leafy’ privileged areas and ‘barren’ under-privileged areas. Urban greening improves pride of place in communities, has even been linked to reductions crime, drug abuse and stress.

ECONOMIC

Money does grow on trees! Fruit and olive trees can provide produce that can be used in feeding schemes. Indigenous trees increase property values and can provide natural air conditioning for homes and classrooms.

SYMBOLIC

Planting a tree is an incredible symbol of hope. It symbolises a belief in the future – of our communities and our planet. It brings people together – with each other and Mother Nature. It is a living, breathing gift to the generations to come.
