Trees for Tourism is a program of the South African Reforestation Trust, and a non-profit organisation.
People and companies active in the tourism industry of South Africa have come together to enhance and create pristine forest eco-systems on selected sites in different parts of the Western Cape.
The planting of indigenous trees, funded through the collective effort of the tourism industry, will help to safeguard the richness and robustness of South Africa’s biodiversity and store carbon for generations to come.
Trees of many different indigenous species are planted such as Cape Beech, Milkwood, Wild Olive and Yellow Wood, mimicking the natural formation of forest eco-systems.
Planting a tree in any spot is always a good idea, but planting a tree as a component of a natural forest has the added benefit of creating a safe habitat for natural wildlife, supporting entire eco-systems and storing extra carbon.
Forests produce clean air, pure water, rich soil
Forests prevent erosion
Forests store carbon
Forests create food and shelter for wildlife
Forests create a sanctuary for man
Forests are part of our tourism capital
Forests are what makes us live
Sponsor a Tree
For only R120 you can sponsor a tree and choose which site you would like it to be planted on. The properties in which the reforestation sites are located are all aimed at nature conservation and rehabilitation i.e. Farm 215; Grootvadersbosch Conservancy; Klein River Cheese Farm.
