Who wants a Tree?
Let TreeForce plant you a tree:
A tree that will become a part of a rainforest and never be cut down.
In return for a share of this post, or a circle of us, TreeForce will plant you a tree, take a photo of it and post a photo of it, tagged with your name! For a +1 we will plant you a tree, but you don't get a photo.
Don't belive us? Check out our profile and you can see last weeks tagged trees.
We will be planting your trees on Sunday the 26th August in Redlynch, Cairns.
Who is TreeForce? We are a small, not for profit community organisation that comes together every second sunday to replant the critically endangered rainforests of Tropical North Queensland, Australia. We only use species that are found in the local area (in the same Regional Ecosysten to be exact). We do not only
plant trees, but we mulch them, water them, remove competing exotic weeds and vines and basically maintain the site (where we have planted all the trees) until the trees are big enough to form a canopy and survive by themselves.It takes about 3 years until the trees are big enough to survive by themselves.
TreeForce promises you this:We only use species endemic to the area
(google Regional Ecosytem 7.3.23)Our trees will NEVER be cut down for timber.Our trees are planted on Public land.
Nobody gets paid, nobody owns them.
Our trees will directly help in the preservation of the critically endangered and many other threatened species.
Where will your trees be planted? Go to gooogle maps, copy & paste st+andrews+college+redlynch you will see a huge area of cleared land to the east of the dot/arrow/pointer this is where TreeForce is regrowing a rainforest.
Species to be planted on the 26th of August... feel free to put in a request for which one you want us to plant for you, or let us choose on your behalf.
