While we may understand that the carbon dioxide emissions from air travel are significant contributors to atmospheric carbon, many of us must still fly periodically for work or to visit far-flung family. If that’s also the case for you, please support our projects! We not only plant native species trees in the rainforest and savanna of Brazil, but we also benefit rural community systems that are guardians of biodiversity, care for the health of the soil, the trees and the land in perpetuity.
iGiveTrees has been supporting smallholder reforestation and agroforestry projects in rural Brazil since 2010. Current field partners are now collaborating, sharing best practices with one another while also teaching neighbors in their communities in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Goiás.
10,000 tree plantings can regenerate 20+ hectares of pasture with 500+ trees per hectare using agroforestry methods to plant food crops among the trees.
Other projects use assisted natural regeneration methods to bring back corridors of forest between neighboring patches.
