Trees4Trees: tree planting partner of ETEAQ

Trees4Trees

Bespoken Indonesian non profit foundation

For every ETEAQ product purchased, you adopt one new tree in the forests of Indonesia via our partnership with Trees4Trees. Your new tree is planted and cared for by a local Indonesian farmer as part of the Trees4Trees reforestation program.

Trees4Trees is an Indonesian non-profit that empowers local communities through partnership reforestation initiatives and related education programs. By increasing the area of community planted and owned forests, livelihood assets are created, the negative effects of deforestation are reduced and the environment is renewed.

Community based forestry is acknowledged as one of the key strategies in promoting sustainable forest management and in reducing poverty in rural areas particularly in developing countries. When forestry is implemented in partnership with communities it can raise standards of living and contribute to positive development.

Indonesian farmers taking care of the tree

The trees planted are chosen for their suitability to local growing conditions and their value as commercial timbers. This selection of which species to plant is made together with the farmer on who's land the trees will be planted. Trees4Trees suggests a mix of species that will be most suitable to a particular plot's soil and exposure along with the farmer's economic goals. Finally it is the farmer's decision which species are actually planted. In this way, the farmer is fully engaged to cultivate and protect the trees and success is assured. Typical species planted are teak and albizia.

ETEAQ has partnered with Trees4Trees in a pledge to use business to further community reforestation efforts, as part of our commitment to ethical business for a brighter, greener future for generations to come.
