Our project

India

Forests play a vital role to the people of India, where about 275 million people directly depend on forest resources. They provide material for industry, food and nutrients, timber for housing, and fuel. In addition, forests provide shelter, food, and safety to thousands of species of plants, animals, insects, and fungi.

This project focuses on planting fruit trees in India. Not only does this contribute to a cleaner planet, but helps alleviate hunger, nutrition, deficiency, and poverty — especially in rural communities.

Planting timeline: May to October
Planting locations: The Sunderbans and the Himalayan villages of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh

Project Description

This project focused on planting (mostly) fruit trees in homesteads of marginal farmers and communities to help alleviate hunger, poverty, and climate change. These fruit trees provide a source of nourishment and income to the low and marginal farmers struggling to eke out a living in some of toughest terrains and climes in India.

Specific planting projects One Tree Planted has committed to:

1. 10,000 fruit trees in the Sunderbans or in the Himalayan villages of Uttarakhand.

2. 100,000 moringa planted in Bundelkhand Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

3. 200,000 mangrove planted in the Sunderbans.

Tree Species

Fruit trees: plum, walnut, apricot, peaches and lemon. Plus
mangroves and moringas.

Ecological Benefit

Fruit trees start yielding up to 100kg of fruit by their fourth year. In these parts, one hundred fruit trees yield enough fruit for the income and nourishment needs of a family of four.

Planting mangroves will protect the natural embankments of the estuaries in the region, thus protecting the farmlands, restoring the aquatic environment at the estuaries, preventing soil erosion, and restoring ecological balance in the coastal reefs.
