Trees For Haiti

Mission: To reforest and feed those of the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

 

Haitians will not cut down a tree that provides food, such as a coconut

Twenty years ago, scientists calculated that at the rate of deforestation, the country’s tree cover would be completely depleted by 2008.

In the town of Fosse Capois, 15 miles from Cap-Haitien, the planting of 10,000 fruit-bearing trees began on Green Friday, February 1, 2008.

Haiti frequently experiences life-threatening floods and mud slides because of rampant soil erosion due to the lack of trees. Click here to plant trees.

In the severely deforested country of Haiti, Food For The Poor is making major strides to restore the natural balance of the island’s delicate ecology.

Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, has experienced a major ecological disaster with the deforestation that has taken place.

In 2007, Food For The Poor, the foremost international relief and development organization in the Caribbean, began an extensive tree-planting program. Over 100,000 fruit trees have been planted in Haiti, providing a source of nutritious food for the residents, and restoring the natural environmental balance.
