Tree planting in the Udzungwas

This tree planting program based at Hondo Hondo in the Udzungwas that aims to plant a tree for every school child in Mangula Village. This also offers visitors to Tanzania to off-set their Carbon Footprint by contributing directly into a forestry project in Tanzania.

In the initial stages of this project the invasive aliens Teak and Lantana that are growing on the edge of the National Park will be replaced with indigenous trees. This increases the biodiversity and helps to protect the existing forest.

The school children of Mangula lack the educational opportunities to fully appreciate and understand the importance of the forests on their doorsteps. It is hoped that the project will provide an ongoing educational platform, giving children the chance to plant the trees themselves while receiving extra tuition on environmental, botanical and biological studies.

A group international primary students based in Dar es Salaam has already visited Udzungwa and partnered with the local school in Mang'ula to plant 100 trees. We hope to make similar unions with schools from overseas. If you are interested in forming such a partnership please contact us directly.
