How It Works

Partnership

We partner with the local community to cultivate fast-growing Gliricidia trees on their land.

Sponsoring Trees

We support the local community by sponsoring the tree saplings to be planted on their land, through the contributions of our supporters.

Planting Trees

We guide the farmers through the benefits of using trees to protect, diversify, and get the best out of their crop land, while providing financial compensation for the successful planting and maintenance of the trees.

Harvesting

We will sell the wood harvested from these trees to a biomass gasification plant, the sales of which will provide extra income and enhanced welfare for the local people.

Planting Trees, Changing Lives

Planting trees provides families with more than just food. It empowers them with income, education, leadership and unity. Plant a Tree with Me is agroforestry for the people and for the planet.

ABOUT

At Carbon Plantations, we're focused on more than just planting trees. We want to help change lives. Reforestation revitalizes infertile soil, generates oxygen, and absorbs carbon. It directly benefits the community by providing wood and foliage for fuel, food and fodder for livestock, and employment for locals.

Other benefits from the plant

We also partner with new generation biomass gasification plants to use this wood as fuel to generate clean and renewable energy, as well as biochar and other solid or liquid products that will keep the carbon safe from being pushed back into the atmosphere.

Biochar is a stable form of carbon which, when added to soils, will not decompose for hundreds to thousands of years.

When used as a soil amendment, the carbon embodied in the biochar will effectively be taken out of the Carbon Cycle, providing a multitude of benefits for the soil and the life within it. In other words, producing biochar and adding it to soils will be taking carbon out of where it is doing the most harm and putting it where it is doing the most good.
