Dear friends. TreeForce is switching to a "page" (as opposed to a personal account). Pages can't add people until people add the page...so if you are still interested in following treeforce, please add TreeeForce page (shared below) to your ciricles.
Thankyou so much for your patience.

Dear all.
Good news = Your still getting your trees.
Bad news = Unfortunatley we made an error when creating our G+ profile and set it to a personal account instead of a page. So unfortunatley google has deleted our personal page. So if it is not too much trouble would you mind adding TreeForce..the page...? so we can keep you updated on the progress of your little photosynthetic babies.

Thankyou so much for your understanding

Site preperations are DONE!

It was a hot day today plussers, 35 degrees easy! But Brian and I went and pumped out a couple of hundred more holes. That bring the total to 650 holes!
The site is now all prep'd and ready for trees. Looking forward to October 20th....
Here is some photos of the final site with the holes all dug.

Site Layout
5th of October.
Setting out the site for the upcoming treeplanting on 20th October. We space the trees 1.5 x 1.5 m and we are planting 25 rows * 26 colmns = 650 trees. You can see some of the degraded, exotic, vine infested rainforest in the background...Its poor quality is due to the Edge Effect where light and heat penetrates through the perimeter of the forest and allows weeds to grow and nasty vines to grow.
As your trees grow they will link up these remenant fragments (which are effectivly islands) and allow geneflow between them.
Within about 30 years, our tree plantings will look like natural rainforest.
 
Anyway I'm just posting this so you can all see we are busy getting ready for the big day.
We have had about 5cm of rain over the last couple of weeks, which is SENSATIONAL news for all our little green photosynthetic friends.

Remember if you want a rainforest tree tagged with your name, please reshare the linked post, publicly.
