of CO2 are estimated to be sequestered
An average of 0.95 ton of carbon dioxide per year is estimated to be removed from the atmosphere and absorbed, or ‘sequestered’, by one rai of slow-growing native trees. To deliver this level of carbon absorption, a tree must have a diameter of at least 15 cm when measured at 130 cm above ground level. A rai is a unit of area equal to 1,600 m2 (Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization, 2011).
Become a tree sponsor by donating 100 baht per tree or more. You can donate through the Taejai crowdfunding website.
With your donation, smallholder farmers in Santisuk District, Nan Province, will plant and care for your trees. They will plant diverse tree species suitable for each farmer’s agricultural plots.
This website features an online database that registers each tree’s data. The farmers track and report the growth of the trees. You can monitor the progress of the trees you sponsor.
Our project report is available publicly, and you can keep track of the project progress and benefits.
Our project site is in Santisuk District, Nan Province. Nan is mostly mountainous and an important source of water, providing about 40 percent flowing into the Chao Phraya River. Over the years, however, Nan has lost more than 1 million rai of forest due to monoculture cultivation. This is affecting the supply of water to the Chao Phraya River, the lives of local people, and people living downhill in both urban and rural areas. The Trees4All project by RECOFTC and the local smallholder farmers is a start toward resolving the problem of deforestation and can be replicated in other provinces in the future.learn more
Our farmers are highland smallholders in Nan Province who voluntarily agree to reduce the size of their monocropping areas and diversify by planting native trees to restore the ecosystem and let it thrive sustainably. We promote social inclusion and gender equity in our cooperation with the farmers, develop their capacity in tree planting and growth monitoring, and support the development of community enterprises that create sustainable local jobs.
