Plant a Tree in Haiti

$
$1.00
Gives 1 tree
Gift Description:
$1 gives 1 tree planted and cared for by a Haitian student. Trees restore soil and water sources, bringing productivity back to the land. Deforestation is a huge problem in Haiti, as it has increased the erosion of nutrient-rich top soil, taken away shade, prevented crop growth, and caused many water sources to dry up. Additionally, removing trees reduces crop productivity. This leads to more tree cutting to generate a short-term income, further decreasing crop productivity and creating a vicious cycle of poverty and deforestation. Nitrogen-fixing trees, which add nutrients into the soil, combat this cycle by restoring soil, shade and water sources. More trees result in increased food production, nutrition, and income. It also leads to increased biodiversity in Haiti and a greener world.
