Projects & Impact

Lwetunga Tree Planting Village

Treescape planet Organization works with communities to exercise agroforestry. Agroforestry-the use of trees in farming-benefits both farmers and the environment.

According to a recent report by Biodiversity International, the Center for International Forestry Research, the World Agroforestry Centre, forests contribute to the livelihoods of more than 1.6 billion people.

Yet, 30 percent of the world’s forests are used primarily for the production of wood products. Agroforestry is defined as the integration of trees and shrubs into crop and animal farming systems.

These practices can help landowners diversify products and create social, economic, and environmental benefits.

trees and forests provide more than just food—they can enhance soils, protect biodiversity, preserve precious water supplies, and even help reduce the impacts of climate change. by planting food-bearing trees and other trees, tpo recognizes that edible trees simply aren’t utilized to their maximum potential; while over 20,000 edible tree species exist, fewer than 20 species provide the majority of food worldwide. trees that feed promotes biodiversity while providing nourishment for people, creating jobs, and benefiting the environment.

the tpo recognized the role that trees can play in feeding a community and discovered an opportunity to a meliorate the situation of hungry communities. tpo also realized the crucial function of trees as carbon sequestration sinks and soil conservation resources, meaning they can act to mitigate climate change.

the tpo’s crops are versatile, and can be grown by small farmers, on field margins, and even in urban centres. certain trees can additionally act as a support network for smaller understory plants, such as coffee, mangos, and avocado. this has been exercised with communities in lwetunga kapeeka sub county, nakaseke district in uganda.
