Trees for All

 

trees for allThis programme greens, educates, offsets carbon emissions and transforms schools and other community centres into healthier more sustainable environments. FTFA responds to applications for trees from communities living in barren, dusty townships and delivers trees with instructions on how to plant and maintain them. Millions of trees have been distributed to schools, clinics, old age homes, hospices, police stations and other community centres, but there are calls for many more.

Trees are funded through paperless billing, recycling, percentage of product contributions and carbon offset. Individuals and companies give trees and receive certificates for themselves, or as gifts for others. 

Costs per tree for this programme are R130 all inclusive.
