If you needed more reasons to plant a tree, there are SO many reasons to plant a tree.

The area where we are planting trees; within our 'rebuild area' was once used for agriculture, meaning a lot of the natural bush was once cleared.  The area, asides from a few stunning old marulas (which are protected) and some fast growing knob-thorns and sickle bush trees it is a barren area; which is the main reason we chose it to build our new facilities.  Through planting trees we can regenerate the natural environment, and already we have seen a huge increase in the population of birds which chose to nest in some of the trees.

Trees are beautiful, natural and produce oxygen for us to breathe.  Trees are a place of sanctuary, rest, shade.  Trees should never be underestimated.  Every day hundred of trees are cut down, if we plant more, we are helping the planet and the animals. 


Additionally, trees make delicious fruits for us and animals to eat!
