  • 400 Trees for Belize | Belize Botanic GardensBelize Botanic Gardens
    on behalf of the Religious Campaign for Forest Conservation Fred has been advocating tree planting for years in an effort to combat climate change The project called Trees for Belize got 400 trees in the ground on 4 properties around Belize The trees planted for the Trees for Belize project were native species planted on land to supplement natural forests that had been compromised or for the regeneration of forest on land that had been cleared by previous owners for agriculture As part of a natural habitat the trees have more impact and the partners agreed to allow trees to live out their natural lifespan in order to maximize their benefit Although there is some controversy surrounding the benefits of tree plantations particularly if they replace natural forest or allow polluting corporations to be forgiven their carbon debt trees do absorb carbon Especially useful are some of the long lived hardwood species such as mahogany and cedar The more natural habitats we can leave intact and the more we can rebuild the better off we will be The project partners are Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary Adele Desroches and Nancy Adamson Kate Devine and Belize Botanic Gardens Fred told me that the average American uses the carbon that 12 trees allowed to live 30 years can absorb every year Learn what your carbon footprint is here Then do your part and try to cut down on carbon emissions by Decreasing your meat consumption Considering each purchase you make opting first for local organic energy saving and not buying at all Sharing rides taking the bus bicycling or walking Checking out your home and office for ways to save energy and reduce energy consumption Reducing what you use Recycling what you use Never burning garbage Getting active about conservation in your community
