HELP AND INVEST WITH GOOD CONSCIENCE
Mankind have managed to cut the number of the Earth’s trees in half. To provide the growing population with food, fuel, living space and the ever-increasing demand for wood, about 15 billion trees get cut down each year.
You, as a consumer, decide how the world looks like with a choice of supported projects. You can choose between Social Projects, “Green Products” and Green Investments: Teak, Mahogany and Cacao.
THE MAMA EARTH FOUNDATION
✓ Professional wood investment
✓ Afforestation of deforested lands
✓ More than 1,600,000 planted trees
✓ State-approved foundation
✓ Ecological-social project support on-site
WHAT MAMA EARTH STANDS FOR
With a choice of supported projects, the consumer concretely determines what the world will look like. You can choose between social projects and/or investments in Teak, Mahogany and Cacao.
For years we’ve been selling concrete products. If you buy a tree or a bag, you get an exact equivalent.
Conservation in connection with investment? We have been successfully investing in Teak, Mahogany and Cacao for years: ‘Money does not grow on trees, but your money grows on our trees.’
When it comes to environmental protection in connection with investment, transparency is our top priority. Therefore, we would like to convince you, on our website and in a direct conversation, and inspire you on our aspiration. If that would not be enough, you are welcome to visit us and see for yourself.
Our social projects are not just based on afforestation, they are also accompanied by fundamental information. Ranging from the provision of school supplies for events about proper handling of nature, to the construction of greenhouses – we support the local population.
YOUR TREES MAKE OUR WORLD GREENER
Mama Earth has already planted over 2,000,000 mangroves and hundreds of thousands of trees. A mangrove costs only 0.33 euros, an endemic tree 7.50 euros as a download or 10 euros with a noble gift card in which the photo of your tree with coordinates is inprinted.
Concrete projects. We want to make your support available. To create a 100 percent transparency, we developed a straightforward system: every tree is photographed, together with it’s coordinates during the planting. Each of our products help make our planet a little bit greener. In addition, you can bring joy to yourself and your loved ones! As a foundation, we offer our products at cost price. Any support is very welcome!
Green investment of Mama Earth
Nature conservation in connection with investment? For years, we have been successfully investing in teak, mahogany and cacao. Our program is designed for sustainability. It should not only be financially rewarding for you as an investor, but also for the farmers who we cooperate with and especially our environment. Each tree is a great help, so you can get started with even the smallest amount as an investor.

Our monthly work reports
We do not hide behind beautiful pictures or advertising texts. We are outside for you every day, planting trees, talking to the institutions and further developing our projects. All with the goal: More trees on our planet. Our monthly newsletters contain all the information you need. You can also register here.
Our Projects in Progress
Our social projects are not just based on afforestation, they are also accompanied by fundamental information. Ranging from the provision of school supplies for events about prober handling of nature, to the construction of greenhouses – we support the local population.
The goal is to plant 5,000,000 endemic trees to help nature redevelop forest areas. To achieve this goal, we do not collect donations. Instead we offer the acquisition of a clearly identified tree. With the help of the coordinates on your myTree photo, you can see the exact planting position in Google Earth. Optionally as a download, gift card or as a set of 10.
The Davao Gulf is twelve times bigger than Lake Constance. It supplied over three million people with fish, which for various reasons is no longer possible. More than a decade ago, the mangroves were cut down thoughtlessly. But without mangroves, not only local biotope collapses but the spawning areas for fishes also get thinned out. So, support the afforestation with the purchase of mangroves.
Vegetables are expensive in some provinces of Mindanao for various reasons: sometimes the soil is not suitable for cultivation or done very unprofessionally, at times it is pouring down and a few days later the sun burns ruthlessly. Although the tropical climate makes the trees grow quite well, but it is also a serious strain on sensitive vegetable roots. Vegetables grow well in the mountain areas, but the transport raises the price of the goods. Our answer: The Mama Earth “Veggie House”!
What lies behind Mama Earth?
For many years we have supported the establishment of protected areas and afforestation, including the planting of mangroves in the Davao Gulf, Philippines to encourage fish wealth. So far, we have been able to plant 1.037.000 mangroves (2017). The goal is 1,2 million, so only about 163,000 mangroves remain to reach that goal.
To put a hold on the catastrophic illegal impact in natural forests, we also plant mahogany and teak commercially. Within four years we managed to plant over 128,000 mahogany and teak trees. Due to the low entry-level price, we generate a good income and local farmers receive about 50 percent. Everyone who wants to participate in the hardwood program is welcome!
As a non-profit and recognized foundation, we are committed to transparency and sincerity.
By buying our products and investing you give new hope to unfortunate areas. Thank you very much!
We are where the trees are missing and not in any office. Every week, our president, Ulrich Kronberg, drives to the plantation side and joins in.
Our green investments are certified by a notary and legally executed.
We support and are supported by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of the Phillipines (DENR).
