A tree species with multiple benefits for the restoration of South African ecosystems

In the Eastern Cape, South Africa, land desertification is caused by the increasing pressure of livestock on grazing land. Today, the depletion of vegetation cover and the degradation of the land of local farmers and surrounding reserves are causing many adverse environmental effects, such as the depletion of water resources, biodiversity erosion and soil erosion. In this context, Reforest'Action is partnering with C4 EcoSolutions and AfriCarbon, two South African companies, to restore these ecosystems by planting 500,000 trees of a local species essential to the ecological functioning of the region.

Haiti (Lavial): continuation of the project with 200,000 additional trees in 2021

From September 2018 to October 2019, a first part of this reforestation project in Haiti was financed by Reforest'Action and conducted by our technical partner OJUCAH. Following the success of this first operation, the project will resume in 2021 in a new dimension. While one of the objectives is still to develop family agroforestry around the town of Lavial, in the south of the country, the project now doubles as an ambition to also restore the forests of the region, which were heavily affected by deforestation and Hurricane Matthew in 2016. A total of 200,000 trees will be planted over the course of 2021, bringing the number of trees of various species funded via Reforest'Action in Lavial since 2018 to 400,000.
