GZ has partnered with Precious Tree Project (PTP), a dynamic Wilderness-based NPO on a mission to raise the presence of endemic and indigenous forest areas along the Garden Route. We fully support their understanding that we are all intrinsically connected to our natural environment and that the health of our environment impacts our own well-being.
PTP concentrates on creating patches of Forest, by planting indigenous and endemic Forest Trees in The Garden Route area of South Africa. The Garden Route, although lush with vegetation, has only 30% of its indigenous forest left. The long term goal is to improve that figure significantly by planting different species of trees in “bio-mimicked” mixed lots, emulating the wondrous biosphere of a mature indigenous Forest.
Trees help to cool the world, clean the air, improve the soil, clean water and create a home for so much life. When a Forest is created, these benefits expand exponentially and become a wondrously complex biosphere for current and future generations to enjoy.
Precious Tree Project – Sponsor a Tree
Planting trees is simply the coolest and “greenest” way you can mitigate and offset your carbon footprint, and regenerate the planet.
There is a lot of work that needs to be done after the devastating fires that ravaged Knysna and the surrounding area in 2107 and 2018 – we want to help raise awareness, support and raise funds for this project, and get our green hands dirty during tree planting events.
