Follow our Tree Planting in Haiti

Reforestation is a major challenge for Haiti. Centuries of over-farming and poor agricultural methods have destroyed the region’s soil. Erosion makes it very difficult to grow food, and dramatically increases the impact of natural disasters.

Over 70% of Haiti’s annual energy comes from wood-based fuels, creating a serious threat to air quality.

By planting trees and learning proper environmental practices, Haitian farmers can grow more food, combat climate change, and lift themselves out of poverty.
