HAF and its national and international partners sequester 1 ton of CO2 by planting 24 organic fruit trees with farming communities in the countryside of Morocco at a cost of $0.40 per tree,
totaling $9.60 per ton.
Help plant trees and attain your Certificate, carbon balance, and investment in people and the world.
As the value of carbon credits continues to rise, this monetary source is an engine to achieve food security, safeguard biodiversity, secure sustainable livelihoods, and empower people.
HAF promotes local and regional
economic development and resiliency
by growing trees. HAF has planted 4
million fruit trees in 26 provinces in
Morocco, impacting approximately
30,000 farming families since 2003.
HAF receives land in-kind for nurseries
from public and civil agencies, including
the High Commission of Water and
Forests, Ministry of Youth and Sports,
schools and universities, the Moroccan
Jewish community, and cooperatives
and associations around the country.
HAF’s tree projects are designed and
managed by the people who plant,
irrigate, harvest, and gain livelihood from
them. Farming families are the sole
beneficiaries of the new yield and income.
Communities and HAF’s team are devoted
to monitoring tree growth. This involves
oversight of tree survival rates, height, and
diameter over time to understand the
development and environmental impact.
HAF inserts this data into both a registry
and a Geographic Information System.
This allows HAF to bolster sustainability.
HAF coordinates tree distribution and
planting with farmers, supports irrigation
installation, certifies and registers trees at
timely intervals, and conducts training
programs in the technical areas necessary
to maximize healthy tree growth.
Morocco is among the world’ s most vulnerable regions to climate change. It faces deforestation, poor soil quality, desertification, and limited water availability. Two-thirds of agricultural communities are especially prone to extreme poverty. Fortunately, Morocco is pioneering community action and integrated partnership to vitalize self-sustaining horticulture and biodiversity.
Agroforestry projects with farming communities generate revenue from high quality, organic fruit. We enhance biodiversity by growing native trees. With its robust monitoring team and governmental and civil partnerships, HAF in Morocco is ideally positioned to offer voluntary carbon offsets and participate in a globally credited system. Together we grow and monitor almond, argan, avocado, carob, cherry, date, fig, jujube, lemon, olive, pomegranate, quince, and walnut trees.
