The Quickest (and Cleanest!) Way to Plant a Tree
Categories: Boots With Roots: Tree Planting, Making Our Difference: TBL CSR
Two years ago, Timberland launched a community-based agroforestry program in Haiti that includes 8 tree nurseries run by volunteer farmers. We connect those farmers with trees, seeds, tools and training, and they grow trees and crops to sell and eat. It’s all part of Timberland’s commitment to plant 5 million trees before 2015.
You can help our agroforestry program grow without getting your hands dirty (although I understand that for some people, that’s half the fun) — and you might even learn a little something about yourself at the same time. Just answer the personality questions in our Timberland “Hortiscope” (get it?) on Facebook to learn which tree species you most resemble. When you take the quiz, we’ll plant a real tree for you in Haiti.
