L'AMERIQUE  NORD & SUD      EUROPE     L'ASIE     AUSTRALIE      L'AFRIQUE

UNSDG Haiti.jpg

Il existe de très nombreux projets de plantation d'arbres à travers le monde  qui ont besoin de notre soutien. L'approche de Trees4Travel est de  sélectionner et se concentrer sur quelques forêts à la fois. Nous travaillons en étroite collaboration avec des partenaires de plantation d'arbres certifiés et contrôlés, des experts dans leur environnement local. Nous ne planterons que des arbres indigènes d'une région et pour assurer un taux de survie élevé, nous ne plantons pas seulement des graines mais une variété de jeunes arbres. Le reboisement qui restaure la biodiversité et les écosystèmes naturels est notre priorité, contribuant au changement climatique et améliorant la santé et le bien-être humains. En surveillant de près nos projets sélectionnés, nous pouvons communiquer les progrès à notre communauté de voyageurs attentive et apporter des changements positifs à notre monde.

les Etapes

  • L'achat d'un arbre est effectué par un voyageur.

  • Nous combinons les fonds de tous nos voyageurs.

  • Le partenaire de plantation d'arbres prépare le site et cultive les jeunes arbres.

  • Pour s'assurer que les jeunes arbres ont le meilleur départ, ils vont dans le sol pendant la saison qui convient le mieux au type d'arbre.

  • Pour assurer la survie des jeunes arbres, les partenaires de plantation d'arbres arrosent et entretiennent les jeunes arbres nouvellement plantés.

  • Notre équipe photographie & films sur place, vous pouvez ensuite suivre vos arbres, vos voyages & votre impact dans votre tableau de bord.

Haiti Nursery.jpg

The team is utilizing a variety of planting methods including Bare Root, Cutting, Direct Seeding and Seedling Nursery.

The planting seasons:

·Bare root: April-June & August-November

·Direct seeding: April-June & August-November

·Nursery: April-June & August-November

The team has primarily used bare root methods and also focus on germinating seeds in the nursery. 

Bare Root: At the onset of the rainy season, wild seedlings are harvested from healthy or remnant forests, which typically see a large influx of small seedling growth beneath the canopy. Bare root (wild) involves the gentle collection of these seedlings and quickly replanting them at an adjacent deforested area. Transferring the seedlings does not harm the healthy forest, as overcrowding and excessive shade from the canopy means only a tiny percentage of the seedlings would have survived. This planting method strategically leverages nature’s abundance

During dry seasons the team collect native seeds & prepare them in the nurseries.

Traditional seedling is the process of germinating seeds in the nursery, temporarily moving them to a bag or pot until they reach maturity. When the rainy season begins the saplings are then planted in the fields - in just a few years a sustainable forest emerges.

  Tree Species Planted  

Gliricidia Sepium Tree.jpg

Gliricidia Sepium

 

The species Gliricidia sepium is cultivated and used for a variety of purposes in tropical regions. The flowers of Gliricidia are edible when cooked. The whole plant is a folk remedy for various conditions such as but not limited to colds, cough, fever, headache, bruises, burns, rheumatism, ulcers, and wounds. It can also be used as a rodenticide and general pesticide. 

Leucaena Leucocephala

 

Young leaves, pods, and flower buds are edible and usually eaten raw, steamed or mixed in soups or with rice. The seeds can also be eaten either raw or cooked, or dried then used as coffee substitute. The plant also yields edible gum used in sauces. Roasted seeds can even be used to moisturize skin. The wood is often used for its fiber, mainly to make paper.

Delonix Regia Tree.jpg

Delonix Regia

 

Besides its ornamental value, it is also a useful shade tree in tropical conditions, because it usually grows to a modest height (mostly 5 m or 15 ft, but it can reach a maximum height of 12 m or 40 ft) spreads widely and its dense foliage provides full shade. In areas with a marked dry season, it sheds its leaves during the drought, but in other areas it is virtually evergreen.

As you can see these saplings are well on their way to becoming strong, beautiful trees and in the near future this site will start to become a thriving forest again. By working together in the fight against climate change we are truly building a more sustainable and equitable world.  This reforestation project has so many essential co-benefits such as helping to improve the communities economic situation, improving soil strength, which in turn will help water quality and restoring ecosystems. Let's keep up the great work for people and planet!

November 2021

The plantation managers organise and collaborate with local farmers to also plant agroforestry species within the reforestation areas. They arrange the training of field staff, developing training materials, and expanding agroforestry seedling distribution to all local farmers. Agroforestry can improve the resiliency of agricultural systems and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Agroforestry is a land use management system in which trees are grown around or among crops or pastureland. This diversification of the farming system initiates an agroecological succession, like that in natural ecosystems, and so starts a chain of events that enhance the functionality and sustainability of the farming system. Trees also produce a wide range of useful and marketable products from fruits/nuts, medicines, wood products, etc. This intentional combination of agriculture and forestry has multiple benefits, such as greatly enhanced yields from staple food crops, enhanced farmer livelihoods from income generation, increased biodiversity, improved soil structure and health, reduced erosion, and carbon absorption.

Haiti Reforestation Updates

June 2022 Haiti La Vallee..jpg

La Vallée is a massive terrestrial reforestation site. This site is located at an altitude of 800 meters near the town of Jacmel. The community of La Vallée de Jacmel has a population of approximately 33,217 inhabitants. The population relies on agriculture, growing legumes, grains, and fruit, especially different citrus varieties, for income. It was once famous for its sweet potato production. According to reported stories, this city was once a coffee-producing basin with lush forest cover. The terrestrial reforestation program aims to reforest the area to enhance the bare land, restore its landscape, and make it more resilient. This project will contribute to increased plant coverage of the site, a higher frequency of precipitation, and improved plant species diversity.

Haiti Update Oct 2022.jpg

October 2022

This reforestation site is a shared site, where many companies and individuals contribute to help restore the land and forests. From October 2021 to September 2022, through this support, the locals where able to plant 565,683 trees, which employed an average of 23 employees per month and created a total of 7,813 working days. With a steady income, the local employees can put savings aside, invest in their households, start micro-enterprises to diversify their income opportunities, and provide healthcare and everyday needs for their families. Additional significant socio-economic impacts include improved diets and health due to purchasing nutritious food and increasing education as families can afford to send their children to school.

History & Location
Haiti April 2023 Update.jpg

We can see the growth of the trees, many of them already over 1 metre in height. With the rainy season about to begin, they will continue to thrive and newly planted saplings continue to be planted on the site which has an estimated capacity of 6.3 million trees needed to restore the area. Throughout this project, the reforestation teams will actively protect the site and replant any losses to ensure the native ecosystem reaches its full potential. Ultimately, many of these trees will mature, producing seeds of their own and helping the forest return to the point of natural equilibrium.

Trees4Travel and its partners were grateful for the opportunity to be able to learn about the important role of reforestation in Haiti and to have been able to help the indigenous communities restore their land. We have now completed our agreed reforestation commitment on this site. The local communities and government will continue to manage the land and protect the trees planted, so that not too far in the future, beautiful abundant forests and biodiversity can once again thrive and return to this place .
