The PomeGran Forest
$15,000.00 / year
The project entails the planting of 10,708 trees. The estimated Co2 offsetting power is conservatively 150 to 380 KGs/tree. The project aims at protecting and restoring forests on a massive scale by involving local farmers and creating livelihoods for people living in extreme poverty by offering them the dignity of employment and the possibility to become transformational agents of global forest restoration.
The following tree species are involved:
- Mangroves in Kenya: Avicennia marina (Grey Mangrove), Rhizophora mucronata (Red Mangrove), Ceriops tagal (Yellow Mangrove), Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (Black Mangrove), Sonneratia alba (White Mangrove).
- Kelp in British Columbia Canada: Giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera), Bull kelp (Nereocystis luetkeana), Alaria marginata, Saccharina latissima, Saccharina groenlandica
- Coniferous trees in British Columbia Canada: Lodgepole Pine (Pinus contorta), Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), Englemann Spruce (Picea engelmannii), Subalpine Fir (Abies lasiocarpa), Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata), Western Hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla), White Spruce (Picea glauca)
- Dry Deciduous trees in New Brunswick Canada: Red Maple (Acer rubrum), White Ash (Fraxinus americana), Yellow Birch (Betula alleghaniensis), and American Beech (Fagus grandifolia).
The management of the work, the procurement of resources and materials as well as the survival of the trees over time will be carried out by Evertreen’s planting partners.
