Who does the actual planting of the trees?

Eden Reforestation Projects (Eden) is our tree planting partner. Eden is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. Founded in 2004, Eden has planted more than 485 million(!) trees so far.
 
Eden hires the local villagers to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Their “employ to plant methodology” results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environment measures. In this way, they alleviate extreme poverty within the impacted community. This also ensures that the villagers have an economic incentive to ensure the wellbeing of the reforestation project. They also have a sense of “ownership” over the trees and restored forest and they protect it with great care.
