We could not do this without the support of our incredible partners.
Many thanks to these companies for their contribution to reforestation efforts around the world!
The seeds we use come from carefully selected trees with a high natural genetic quality. This ensures that we bring to our nurseries the best seeds available therefore producing high quality trees that will have the ability to fulfill their functions in the field.
It isn’t of any good to plant any tree anywhere and expect a forest thrive. That is why we don’t plant tree species randomly in random places. Too ensure the best results, before we start planting we make sure to know in depth the area, climate, soil characteristics and other factors in order to decide which species of trees to plant in each site.
Just as there are specific tools for each type of work, there are also specific tree species for each type of need and environment. For this reason, the needs of each place are studied in detail in order to plant the species that best meet those needs.
In all our projects we try to use as many native trees as possible, we do this for various reasons, among them the most important are; Recover the original forest, avoid adaptation problems, reduce maintenance costs, recover fauna and flora of the place, etc.
Land and climate characteristics will tell us what tree species can thrive in a given place, this helps us to avoid planting trees that are not suitable or that have few chances to succeed, obviously planting a tree that is not suitable for a certain place is meaningless. That is why soil and climate analysis is a very important factor when selecting a planting site and the tree species that can be planted in it.
– Ketrawe is call to be part of the mitigation of climate change.
– We help you achieve the most efficient environmental and social impact by planting trees alongside with individuals and businesses.
– We mitigate water, social and carbon footprints through tree planting
– Ketrawe is not a carbon offsetting company
– We do not offer carbon certificates, although we plant for those who are offsetting.
– We follow standards and policies that embraces zero tolerance towards greenwashing and forest destruction.
We plant trees to restore ecosystems and livelihoods whilst increasing protection against climate change in multiple regions of the tropical forest, especially in the amazon rain forest.
We do this through windshields and reforestation formats that in ways recreate and restore parts of the natural forest ecosystems through the use of indigenous species, local knowledge and skills. We push hard to do it in a smart, appropriate and respectful way.
Each tree can offset about 20 Kg of CO2 every year.
ENHANCE WATER AND HUMIDITY CYCLES
Each tree can contribute to create humidity conditions by expelling more than 200 litters of water a day. This means a lot of water!!
Each year a tree provides enough oxygen for more than two people to breathe.
A tree can absorb more than 8,000 liters in case of flooding.
