Just One Tree- 10,000 Tree Challenge
Join us in donating $20 to plant an Endangered Alemendro Tree!
The Almendro Tree is so prized for its wood used in construction (it is so dense it is termite-proof) that it is now extinct in many locations, including many of the islands in Bocas del Toro.
This tree is a "Keystone Species" and is essential to lowland Caribbean Rainforests. It is also the only tree the highly endangered species, the great green macaw, will use as a nest.
As a way to fight against the Almendro's possible extinction, Planet Rehab launched the project "Just One Tree". This initiative consists of the reforestation of the Almendro Tree in Bocas del Toro, and hopefully in other areas in Panama and Central America.
We believe one tree more is a step closer to winning the battle! This is why we grow as many Almendro trees as we can in Green Acres, and assure they are protected and have all the right conditions to grow healthy and happy.
Once they are big enough, we look for the right home for the trees, so they can keep living and growing, and we have some room for new trees. The right home is the one that would assure the tree won't be cut and will be respected as well as any animals or insects that visit it.
We keep a close eye on the tree to make sure it is being protected and is growing safely. At the same time, we keep helping to inform local and international communities of the importance of these and other trees, and how we can protect them.
Each $20 donation will go towards planting an Almendro Tree! This will be used for:
-Growing and caring for your sapling
-Transitional transplanting to reduce "shock"
-Transportation costs to take your sapling to new Island homes
-Planting your sapling in its new home
