River Run Indigenous Tree Plantation
The pilot project will start in the area of responsibility of Atwimahene paramount chief Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II.
5 employees for planting & care
supported by regional forestry authority
3 year care & monitoring
Tree target = 85.000 trees / 130 ha
Price per Tree = 2.00 €
We set the goal that all rivers, streams, wetlands and other water bodies in the Atwima Stool area will be covered with trees by 10-15 m per bank side. The first riverbank plantation capacity with around 130 hectares will be mapped out with 85000 trees. This first project will be a visible demonstration example for the whole Ashanti Region.
This program will compensate climate-damaging carbon and combine the afforestation directly in the habitat of the population without consuming usable areas for agriculture and lifespace. Moreover this trees will counteract effects of soil erosion, river flooding, and air pollution. Along the Atwima rivers 85000 new planted trees will immediately improve lives of the local people and support at the same time the global fight against climate change.
