YOUR MYTREE IS UNIQUE
After long preparations our campaign myTree has finally brought to life. The thorough studies have grown into a tree planting program, which is unique on a global scale. You are very welcome to volunteer and plant with us!
The process: Mama Earth is releasing endemic trees into the wild and photographs each tree during the planting. The trees will continue to grow all their lives and create new forest areas.
The myTree planting campaign aims to plant 5 million trees in Mindanao, Philippines. It is important for us to guarantee the highest transparency. How is that possible? Every planted tree is photographed with its coordinates. So, there will never be two trees showing the same coordinates! This way you can be sure that we planted exactly that tree on your photo. If you enter the coordinates in Google Earth, you will ‘fly’ to your tree. Our foresters and their helpers take care of the trees for three years, after that their survival is safe.
✓ Each tree helps the afforestation of our project ‘wild forest’ in Marilog
✓ The planted trees will not be for logging
✓ This mixed forest is part of sustainable environmental protection
✓ The afforestation is supported by the environmental state authority
✓ Development of livelihoods for humans and animals
✓ Ideal as a gift (weddings, birthdays, clients, family)
HELP THE FOREST HELP ITSELF
Forester and author Peter Wohlleben puts in a nutshell: ‘Forests thrive best without human intervention.’ But when there is no forest, trees are the first requirement. We plant them for you. At points where formerly wood companies raged, but also at ecologically important places.
In the program myTree, we only plant trees that are not intended for commercial logging. Of those almost twenty different species, most of them are already on the Red List. Cutting down these trees are prohibited and violators will be prosecuted. Your trees will grow in the Davao region, where, among other things, the Philippine eagle – the largest eagle worldwide – desperately needs space to live.
The afforestation areas are provided to us by the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). Most of them are sensitive areas, such as water conservation areas. The larger the areas, the more options we must resettle wildlife there.
