CREATE! ’s Tree-Planting Program
Did you know that Senegal loses an average of 45,000 hectares of forest per year? CREATE!’s tree-planting program helps reforest and replenish regions that have been stripped of nutrients due to land exploitation and increasing desertification. Not only do trees support the health of the soil but they also increase food security for families in rural Senegal.
The benefit of trees:
✔Nourish the soil and reduce erosion
✔Reduce air temperature
✔Provide shade and windbreak
