Coniferous Tree, Cariboo, Canada- CO2 900 Kg
CO2 Offset per tree: 900 KG
Average Lifetime: 180 years
In 2017, 2018, and 2021, British Columbia in Canada was ravaged by wildfires, which spread across more than 1.3 million hectares of land. The intensity of the fires was such that they killed off the forests and damaged the soil, leaving a scarred and barren landscape. The local wildlife’s habitat and food sources were severely impacted, and the Indigenous communities lost their traditional hunting grounds and food sources, threatening their way of life.
To address this issue, we are contributing to a reforestation project aimed at restoring the area. We plan to plant a variety of species, including Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, Ponderosa pine, hybrid spruce, and western larch, with the goal of assisting natural regeneration and allowing the damaged ecosystems to flourish once again. With your support, we will help restore the soil, which has been damaged by burn scars and erosion. It will take an estimated 13 million trees and years of hard work to restore the Cariboo region. However, this effort will not only help the ecosystem but also enable the local communities to rebuild their livelihoods and secure their futures.
