Creating, nurturing and sustaining generational growth
The Fairtree Reforestation Project in collaboration with the Cape Parrot Project
Fairtree has partnered with the Cape Parrot Project and the Wild Bird Trust to plant at least 10,000 indigenous trees over three years – and this is only the beginning. Fairtree wants to give back what was lost – indigenous forests that provide a canopy for fauna and flora to flourish while limiting water depleting exotic species.
The Yellowwood tree is a national treasure worth preserving for generations to come, and the Cape Parrot, South Africa’s only endemic parrot, is reliant on it for its survival. On the one hand, this collaboration assists the Cape Parrot Project in their conservation efforts of the Cape Parrot, which is on the brink of extinction (less than 2000 in the wild). On the other hand, the Fairtree Yellowwood Reforestation Project is driving local community involvement and sustainability by empowering community members to act as custodians of these trees (Sompondo Nursery) until they are planted in the forest.
