TREES AND FORESTS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE ON EARTH
Forests balance the Earth’s water-cycle essential for cooling our climate.
In addition, forests play another vital role in stabilising the climate by sucking carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere and fixing it into soils and biomass.
50% of a tree’s biomass is carbon which remains stored, acting as a ‘carbon sink’, unless the tree decays or is burned.
Global forests are estimated to hold more CO2 than the atmosphere.
We know we must halt the loss of natural forests and accelerate forest landscape restoration.
Healthy and growing forests remain the best solution for removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
As a genuine not for profit, from administration to reporting and tree maintenance, ReForest Now offers a very personal attention to outcomes and by the nature of our establishment, can offer the lowest rates in the rainforest restoration industry for landscape scale reforestation.
From the outset we could see that the current models used by conservation organisations presented several challenges that increased costs and made accessibility too difficult for the everyday person.
We have an entirely in-house system meaning we grow our own trees in our nursery with a strong team of volunteers. This helps us keep tree costs down and creates the opportunity to engage with volunteers and the community. The nursery grows approximately 40,000 trees per year. Each month we plant trees with our volunteers and the community in open community planting events.
We collaborate with individuals, private industry, organisations, and government bodies to increase our impact.
