"It's Not About Hugging Trees, It's About Planting Them!

Trees are the mules of the biosphere -- working silently to absorb GHG, resupplying oxygen, absorbing water, crushing rocks into particles and composting themselves for nutrients.

Trees for the Future

Trees for the Future (TFTF) -www.treesforthefuture.org - is a nonprofit organization that was around long before "going green" was cool.

We're learning every day that many, many people have been working as planet stewards "long before it was fashionable...or mandated... or cool.

Since their inception in 1988, Trees for the Future team members have planted 65 million trees in strategic locations around the world.

They train local farmers to plant, care for, and sustainably utilize trees. Among their many success stories, TFTF was responsible for the reforestation of an area in the Philippines that had been stripped by illegally logging and left barren for over 100 years...incredible!

Go Green Radio will interview Gorav Seth, who heads up all the international programs for Trees for the Future. Gorav has been on the front lines, combating climate change through sustainable agroforestry, in Africa, Honduras, India, Costa Rica, and (mega-tough duty station) the Bahamas!

Gorav developed a keen interest in agroecology, agroforestry, and permaculture while studying Plant Biology at UC Berkeley. He took this interest out into the world, working on projects in the USA, Honduras, India, Costa Rica, and the Bahamas. In 2004, he completed his MBA in International Business under the Millenium Fellowship from the George Washington University. At TREES, he is coordinating our country programs, developing our India country program, expanding our monitoring and evaluation systems, and maintaining the IT systems and our website.

California has a lot of contributions to make to replenishing the earth's trees -- we have technology, offset strategies, caring people, and the need to replenish our own state's annual loss of forests due to wildfires, floods and mudslides.

Think trees. Plant trees. Care for trees. They really matter.

Along highways and byways, trees silently absorb carbon dioxide. In our yards, trees absorb stormwater runoff. Along creeks and streams, trees absorb and store water supplies, and trees also break underground packed soils and rocks into minute particles and infuse these minerals with nutrients, creating soil.

Yes, trees work hard for us. Let's hug a tree, at least virtually!
