Trees for Haiti
“Pouring money on top of dry land isn’t reforesting. Reforesting is, you’ve got to come out in the dirt. You’ve got to talk to people. This is your home, this is our passion … how do we put those things together?”
Timberland President & CEO Jeff Swartz
We’ve just announced a commitment to plant five million trees in five years to help create sustainable solutions in Haiti and China — two areas plagued by the disastrous effects of deforestation.
To help illustrate the need for — and impact of — those five million trees, we’ve produced a series of videos about our Haiti tree planting project, Yele Vert. Episode 1 appears below … and you can watch the entire series of videos on our YouTube channel.
