Who Are Tree Planting Holidays?
Our Mission Statement:
“We aim to plant a significant quantity of trees providing food and habitat. We will encourage the participation of the local communities and create micro industries within and around the forest so that it contributes to the economy of the region. Holidays will be offered to those that would like to come and help us plant the forest.”
