What are concrete impacts of the TforTrees projects on your personal ecological footprint?
Reforesting and afforesting barren, unused land can provide valuable wood which can be used as a substitute for fossil fuels. Wood can be used as fuel oil, to generate green electricity and power rural areas of the world, synthetic gas or kerosene. Thus, TforTrees promotes the use of renewable resources which reduce CO2 emissions. Afforestation increases carbon capture and sequestration while also helping to anthropogenically improve biodiversity (creates habitats for animals and plants alike). Forestry is also an important economic factor responsible for the creation of numerous national and international jobs.
