Precis of existing tree planting schemes for immediate funding
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:30:18 AM »
I have tasked Joel Gombiner with compiling a list of current tree planting operations which may fall under the remit of the Carboncoin Trust which we can assist with funding while we are assembling the required knowledge for roll out our carbon sink forestry.

It would be good to get as much info as possible on the sort of tree planting these organisations are undertaking - partularly whether or not biodiversity is being achieved. Some idea of the political climate where the operations are based would be good as well as an idea of costing per tree where possible.

I would also be interested, where other charities are concerned, in what proportion of the funds raised are spent on administration.

We welcome any ideas from the community specifically regarding tree planting schemes we might look at for intermediate sponsorship while our academic programs are underway. Any organisation we look to partner with in this way will be engaged directly by trustees prior to sponsorship as a matter of course.

Nice idea AM.

Not sure it's something we would necessarily want to sponsor but here's an initiative taking place in China right now and doing pretty well by the looks of things: http://www.mtpchina.org/index.php/english/about-us/

Project designed to "help stop the desertification in Inner Mongolia and help offset China's greenhouse gas emissions".

The 25RMB per tree is currently about £2.50 and includes "all expenses needed throughout the tree’s life", whatever they may be...

Note that "Shanghai Roots & Shoots cooperates with the Department of Forest Science’s Nursery Technology Cooperative at Oregon State University, USA".

Spot on, AM and PH.

Also, the MillionTreesNYC project has already planted 900,000+ trees...

Million tree projects have a lot of things going for them — they especially achieve nice economies of scale.

The UK's Woodland Trust are also worth a mention https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/plant-trees/

Note that the Trust are going to be giving out 4500 tree packs to schools, communities and youth groups for autumn 2015.

Another major initiative here: the Center for International Forestry Research http://www.cifor.org/

They have specialist information on forests and climate change http://www.cifor.org/forests-and-climate-change/

Check out their brilliant 'World Forests Clock' at the bottom of the home page which counts five key flows of forest related metrics since you started viewing the page. More info here http://blog.cifor.org/12135/clocking-the-worlds-forests?_ga=1.104967425.380340829.1422114988#.VMPM3y7o6So It's easy to integrate onto other webpages apparently!
