Click A Tree plants these trees

How closed ecosystems are created

By reforesting in tropical regions, we are making an effective contribution to global environmental protection. We also support local people with fair wages for full-time positions.

Click A Tree is currently planting trees in three projects: in Thailand, Ghana and the Philippines

In total, over 40 different plant species are used in used for reforestation in Thailand.

The seedlings are grown in our own tree nurseries and are used to create closed ecosystems.

The following trees are planted here to preserve forests and reconnect woodlands so that elephants and other wild animals can retain their natural habitat:

  • Teak trees
  • Cluster fig trees
  • Indian laburnum
  • Lucky chestnuts
  • Yellow trumpet trees

In western Africa, on the Atlantic coast, new forest passages are being created with Click A Tree. The special feature of Ghana is that crops are also planted here.

Permanent full-time employees take care of the company’s own tree nurseries, planting and maintenance of the trees. The harvests from the crops are entirely up to you; you can eat them yourself or sell them.

The tree species that are most frequently planted in Ghana include:

  • Moringa
  • Baobab
  • Cashew
  • Neem
  • Mango Local
  • Fever Tree
  • Paper Tree
  • Azanza
  • Tamarind
  • Teak
  • Guava
  • African mahogany
  • Bread Fruit
  • Shea Nut Tree

The association of trees and crops and the imitation of natural mixed forests is also known as “syntropic agriculture”. It ensures that forests are more resilient to pests and environmental extremes. Care is also taken to ensure that closed ecosystems are formed, which then also require a closed water cycle and, as a result, little or no maintenance by humans. There is also a solid storage of CO2 in the soils of syntropically afforested forests.

Mangrove trees grow particularly well in the Philippines, as they cope well with the high salt content on the island shores.

The people in our projects are employed full-time and thus enjoy financial security. The tree seedlings in the Philippines also come from our own tree nurseries. Care is taken to plant only those mangrove species that have a good chance of survival and are beneficial to the local flora and fauna.

The main mangrove species currently planted are as follows:

  • Pagatpat Mangrove
  • Bakauan-Lalaki Mangrove
  • Bakauan-Babae Mangrove

And these species are associated with them in order to counteract monocultures:

Piapi, Api-Api, Tungog, Tabigi, Ragoyroy, Nipa, Taualis and Piagau Mangrove

These species are also used, but in much smaller numbers:

Aroma mangrove, Baok-Baok mangrove, Malibago mangrove and Talisay mangrove.

Mangroves protect the coasts from soil erosion. They soften strong waves and provide a safe habitat for fish and other marine animals, as well as storing a particularly large amount of CO2.

Reforestation as a climate protection measure

Goal 13 of the United Nations is climate protection measures. The 17 global goals for sustainable development of the 2030 Agenda are known as the SDGs for short (Sustainable Development Goals). They are aimed at government institutions and aid organizations, but also at academia, the private sector and civil society.

The 13 goal of this is climate protection measures. It’s about preserving our habitat.

Ecologically sound reforestation in tropical regions has a positive impact on the global climate. The trees planted by Click A Tree are guaranteed to survive. If a seedling fails to grow well within three years, it is replaced by Click A Tree.

The reforested areas are maintained by the full-time staff on site, they are created to stay.
