Why Trees Matter

‍The trees we plant with Eden Reforestation Projects via theGoodAPI support wildlife diversity, improve coastlines, provided meaningful wages to the indigenous population, and grow Mangrove trees which are an incredible carbon sink.

Impact of planting Mangrove trees

‍Mangroves are unique ecosystems found throughout a wide range in the tropics and occupying the intertidal areas of more than 120 countries. Mangroves, and coastal wetlands in general, are globally important for the many services they provide to humans and the planet. These services include protection against storm surges, sheltering nurseries for fish and other marine life, providing building materials, firewood, and providing critically important services to stabilizing the global climate as an important store of carbon.

Mangroves, an incredible carbon sink

With the rapid increase in greenhouse gas emissions over the last century, the need forenduring carbon sinks has grown. The latest models suggest that to remain within“acceptable” global temperature increase, it is no longer enough to simply reduceemissions, and protect existing forests, but rather that we need to rapidly increase theability to sequester carbon. Globally, mangrove systems are estimated to hold an astounding 20 petagrams of carbon. For a biome representing less than 5% of the world’s terrestrial area, this makes mangroves one of the most important carbon stocks, even more than many rainforests like the Amazon. Equally, as a relatively fast-growing group of species, mangroves sequester carbon at a very fast rate.

Help support wildlife and diversity

As forests are destroyed, wildlife species lose their natural habitat, forcing them to relocate, limiting their ability to survive. Madagascar is one of the world’s greatest conservation priorities, with over 200 species of mammals, 100 species of lemurs, 300 species of birds, and almost 300 species of amphibians. Around ninety percent of all wildlife in Madagascar is endemic. Our work with Eden protects these wildlife species in Madagascar by restoring their natural habitats.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we provide tree planting certificates on a monthly basis to all customers who plant trees. We also showcase the certificates we have received from Eden here on our tree planting ledger.

How can you guarantee that trees are being planted ?

Transparency is key. Here are some links that show the impact we have made together with our customers.
  1. Our Eden account page that shows a summary of all the trees we have planted
  2. Our tree planting ledger which keeps a running count of all trees that have been paid for and their corresponding certificates.

How can you ensure trees survive and don't die quickly after planting ?

This is a fair concern and here is what we are doing to alleviate it:
  • Our partners work carefully with all levels of government to secure written agreements designating the restoration sites as protected in perpetuity.
  • They hire people from local communities to plant trees. In this way, we alleviate extreme poverty within the impacted community. Fair and consistent employment provides an economic incentive to ensure the well-being of the restoration project. Additionally, those who plant the trees have a sense of “ownership” over the restored forests, so they protect them with great care.
  • A percentage of the trees planted are agroforestry species (fruit, fodder species designed to provide food security and benefit legitimate human needs). Over time these trees become a source of sustainable income.
  • They do everything possible to supply the local communities with alternative fuel sources (e.g., fuel-efficient dry wood stoves and solar parabolic stoves), reducing and or eliminating the dependence on charcoal.
  • They hire forest guards as part of the labor force to protect the forests. Forest guards are part of the overall budget.
  • Most significantly, we have seen the local communities fall in love with their forest. They benefit from the restored forest through an increase in fisheries, improved farming, cleaner water, and the formation of micro-enterprises. As the employees work to restore their land, their lives are transformed as well.
  • Eden has also created a Forest Guard Endowment Fund, whereby one cent of the price of each tree is put into a fund for the long-term guarding and protection of our sites.

Will I receive certificates for tree planting ?

Yes, we provide tree planting certificates on a monthly basis to all customers who plant trees. We also showcase the certificates we have received from Eden here on our tree planting ledger.
How do I pay for the trees?
To pay for the trees, we have a simple and convenient process in place. For every order placed, we automatically allocate $1 from the total order amount as the tree planting fee. This means that with each purchase, a portion of the payment is dedicated towards supporting our reforestation initiatives. 

By incorporating the tree planting fee directly into the order process, we ensure a seamless and hassle-free experience for our customers who wish to contribute to environmental sustainability. Rest assured that the funds collected from each order will be used exclusively for planting trees and supporting reforestation projects.
