Description

The SportsWorks Int’l Ngo trees in Nepal: 200 trees. Monthly offsetting power of CO2 30.000 KG

This reforestation package is intended to be an exclusive offer for the organization SportsWorks Int’l Ngo.

The project entails the monthly planting of 200 trees in Nepal. The estimated CO2 offsetting power is 30.000 KG.
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 project
Forestry trees account for 75% of the gross primary productivity of the Earth’s biosphere, and contain 80% of the Earth’s plant biomass. The world’s forests contain about 606 gigatonnes of living biomass (above- and below-ground) and 59 gigatonnes of dead wood. The world’s total biomass has decreased progressively since 1990 due to human action.
Forest ecosystems can be found in all regions capable of sustaining tree growth, at altitudes up to the tree line, except where natural fire frequency or other disturbance is too high, or where the environment has been altered by human activity. Forests sometimes contain many tree species within a small area (as in tropical rain and temperate deciduous forests), or relatively few species over large areas (e.g., taiga and arid montane coniferous forests). Forests are home to many animal and plant species, and biomass per unit area is high compared to other vegetation communities.

A forest is made up of many layers. The main layers of all forest types are the forest floor, the understory and the canopy. The emergent layer exists in tropical rainforests. Each layer has a different set of plants and animals depending upon the availability of sunlight, moisture and food.

Benefits
Forestry trees are an important part of the terrestrial ecosystem and have multiple benefits, such as providing essential habitats for communities of organisms, improving soil structure and healthreducing erosion, and carbon sequestration. Forestry trees stabilize the soil, prevent rapid run-off of rain water, help prevent desertification, have a role in climate control and help in the maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem balance.

By financing one tree in this project, you will plant one of the following Forestry trees (funds are equally split among species, in order to support biodiversity):

Acacia katechu(Khair);
Adina cordifolia(Karma/Haldu);
Albizia spps(Siris);
Alnus nepalensis (Utis);
Brassiopsis hainla(Chuletro);
Chukrasia tabularis(Chekrasi);
Cordia dichtoma(Bohori);
Dalbergia latifolia(Satisal);
Fraxinus floribunda(Lakhuri);
Gogan;
Latahar;
Litsea monopetala(Kutmero);
Maleta;
Michelia champaca(Champ);
Paile;
Pterocarpus marsupium(Bijaya sal);
Shorea robusta (Sal);
Shorea seminis(Malaysian sal);
Tectona grandis(Teak);
Terminalia bellerica(Barro).

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, forestry trees in this project may be substituted by agroforestry trees of the following species:

Acacia katechu(Khair);
Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam(Rukh katahar);
Azadirachta indica(Neem);
Bauhinia variegata(Koiralo);
Citrus limon(Kagati);
Coffea arabica(Coffee);
Ficus cunia(Khanayo);
Ficus nemoralis(Dudhilo);
Kavro Dendrocalamus (bamboo);
Leuceana leucocephala(Ipil Ipil);
Litsea monopetala(Kutmero);
Moringa oleifera(Sheetal chini);
Cinnamomum camphora (Kapoor);
Juniperous indica(Dhupi);
Rhododendron arboreum (Laligurans).

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 partner Eden Projects.
