What T4T do?
The foundation distributes free seedlings of high value species including teak, mahogany, mango and other furniture grades to local farmers and resident land owners in Indonesia.
The program provides technical guidance on planting and best forestry practices in addition to long term monitoring to help the tree recipients maximize value.
The foundation also sponsors outreach educational programs in local communities and schools to raise awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of growing healthy trees. By increasing the area of community planted and owned forests, the negative effects of deforestation are reduced and the environment is renewed.
Trees4Trees™ has planted over 650,000 trees in 2008/09/10 planting season.
The activities of the foundation are supported through contributions made by manufacturing and retail participants to fund the replacement of the trees used in the manufacture of their products.
