Save Trees And Save World

Transform the World Agency offers you to get a tree sapling. Plant trees for better tomorrow.

Trees Benefit The Environment

Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow and the carbon that they store in their wood helps slow the rate of global warming. They reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves. It’s estimated that trees can reduce the temperature in a city by up to 7°C. Trees also help prevent flooding and soil erosion, absorbing thousands of litres of stormwater.

South American Countries That Undergo Deforestation

Brazil

Mato Grosso, Rondônia as well as Amazonas are the regions where most of the deforestation occurs in Brazil, due to agriculture, as well as constructions of dams, roads, and other infrastructure since the 'Forest Code' has been weakened.

Ecuador

Ecuador has witnessed a 22% decline in forest cover since 1990. Ecuador was originally largely forested, but today has about two-thirds of that forest cover remaining. The comparatively good news is that about 37% of that is a frontier forest.

Mexico

Mexico’s huge agricultural network is unfortunately responsible for the loss of vital tropical forests. The avocado industry is wreaking havoc, thinning out the pine forests, affecting the atmosphere and wildlife. Monarch butterfly have massively decreased because of the appetite for avocados.

African Continent and Deforestation

Benin

Benin didn't start with great amounts of forest cover - only about 16% of the land used to be forested. A high deforestation rate of 31% doesn't help preserve what remains. Less than 4% of those original forests remain, and none in a frontier forest state.

Ghana

At one point about two-thirds of Ghana was covered with forest. Now, less than 10% of that forest cover remains and none as frontier forest. At a rate of decline since 1990 of 28%, that remaining forest doesn't stand a chance without the induction of better forestry practices.

Sudan

Sudan has a beautiful landscape, covered in forest. Over 30% of the land is luscious greenery. At the moment, 500 miles of trees are cut down for cooking and heating. Large commercial companies which generate steam and electricity are also tapping into the biodiverse landscape.

Tips on Tree Planting

When to Plant

Ideally, trees are planted during the dormant season – in the fall after leaf drop or in early spring before bud-break. Weather conditions are cool and allow plants to establish roots in the new location before spring rains and summer heat stimulate new top growth. In tropical and subtropical climates where trees grow year-round, any time is a good time to plant a tree, provided that sufficient water is available.

Preparation

Balled and burlapped trees lose a significant portion of their root system when dug at the nursery. As a result, trees commonly exhibit a state of slowed growth and reduced vitality following transplanting. Container trees may also experience this, particularly if they have circling or kinked roots that must be cut. Proper site preparation, careful handling to prevent further root damage, and good follow-up care reduces transplant shock and promotes faster recovery.

Right Tree – Right Place

Planning before planting can help ensure that the right tree is planted in the right place. Proper tree selection and placement enhance your property value and prevent costly maintenance trimming and damage to your home.
