Back to Terrific Tropical Trees

‘Installing Forest Ownership Spirit in Our Community.’ With additional funds from private donors, UBoC are also planting more than 15,000 Terrific Tropical Trees in Madagascar via the International Tree Foundation. The EDENN (Education, Développement, Environnement Naturel) project tackles key issues in Madagascar: loss of forests and biodiversity, unsustainable land use, and declining livelihoods. EDENN Women and Youth group helps the community protect the forest by planting a carefully chosen range of native and economically valuable trees for their own benefit around it. The project arises from local aspirations: people see that deforestation is having a negative impact on farming and beekeeping.

In Madagascar, the tree planting season is December to March so there’s more time to prepare the seedlings. First steps are the mobilization of actors and the development of the community and household forest nursery. Ms. Soazara Ranivoarivelo, President Fundraiser says ‘I hope that you will visit us. This would be a great motivation, not only for us but also for the beneficiaries.’
