Afromontane – Kenya
CO2 Offset per tree: 400 KG
Average Lifetime: 100-250 years
In Kenya, Afromontane forests cover only 0.5% of the country’s land area. The Afromontane forests occur along the mountainous regions of Africa but generally they only occur in well-watered areas, including ravines and south-facing slopes. The Afromontane forests are intolerant of fire, and the frequent fires of the surrounding fynbos, savanna, and grassland limit the expansion of the forests. Despite their small area, the Afromontane forests of Kenya produce rare tree species, responsible for high CO2 absorption.
By financing one tree in this project, you will plant one of the following Afromontane trees (funds are equally split among species, in order to support biodiversity):
Please note that average lifetime and KG of CO2 offset are conservative estimations made by Evertreen based on external consultants, papers, articles and comparable platforms. In case of numerous planting orders, afromontane trees in this project may be substituted by agroforestry or mangrove trees of the following species:
These trees are planted in Kenya by our partner Eden Projects.
