Welcome to  Trees with Benefits

 

Welcome to Trees with Benefits. By navigating to this page, it means you are supporting the initiative with the aim of planting 1 million trees over a three-year period.

 

So, THANK YOU!

 

The Trees with Benefits project brings together a community of employers and their employees to plant 1 million trees, powered by Benefex, the employee experience platform, and tree planting champions, Furthr. It’s as simple as employees, like you, selecting eligible benefits available through their employer! This is in order to help reforestation, a proven method to start undoing the damage to our environment, for all our benefit. 

 

At the dedicated Lamahi site, 203 hectares of forest cover began to be planted from September 2022. This supports fair local employment and helps improve biodiversity, encouraging native species to thrive.

Our Lamahi site comprises just under 204 hectares of tropical forest in Nepal's Inner Tera region. Local biodiversity includes a wide array of native flora and fauna; tropical Sal, Khair, and other trees create habitat for over 200 bird species, leopards, Asiatic elephants, and the globally threatened four-horned antelope.

This project kicked off in July 2022, planting started in September 2022. It will run for three years, until 2025, and aims to reforest the local and tropical Sal Forest and Riverine Forest, with a range of native species including Cutch Tree, Indian Rosewood, and Chinaberry.

Exploitation pressure from areas as far away as the coastal city of Mahajunga has increased over time, and easy access across the ocean has enabled wood extraction.

Degradation of the mangrove ecosystem along the Mariarano Estuary leaves coastal communities vulnerable to storms and cyclones due to the lack of storm and erosion control that mangroves’ deep root systems normally would provide. 
 
Other ecosystem services, such as breeding and nursery habitats for fish and shellfish species, are threatened, resulting in a loss of livelihood for residents of the region.
