We're Planting 100,000 Trees in 2021

January 28, 2021

Nepal Nursery manager, Bhima Sharu leading the plantation activities through from production of seedlings in the nursery.

With the aim to achieve a carbon-neutral status for ourselves, our gear and your orders, we're planting trees for every order placed. This year we've committed to planting 100,000 trees.

Place an order, that's trees planted in an area affected by severe deforestation. It doesn't matter if your order is only $10, trees will still be planted on your behalf.

With your help we've already planted over 50,000 trees and we're aiming for 1 million by 2025.

This year, we've financed a new seedling nursery and have committed to planting 100,000 trees in a deforested area of Uyuca in Honduras.

The Uyuca planting site is a new mixed pine/oak/cloud forest site near the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa. This restoration area is located within the Uyuca Biological Reserve, which safeguards several threatened ecosystems and endemic species. Although the Reserve contains a very healthy cloud forest within its core zone, a large proportion of its buffer zone has been damaged. By reforesting this degraded area with native tree species (including some endangered ones), local villagers will protect the Reserve’s unique fauna and several watersheds essential to the sustainable development of 20 communities in the surrounding Valley of Yeguare.

Eden Reforestation Projects

We chose Eden Reforestation Projects because of their seedling survival rate of over 80%, because they plant trees native to the area they're planting in, and because they offer stable employment to villagers local to the planting areas.

Eden Reforestation Projects is a non-profit organisation, on a mission to restore healthy forests to deforested areas, alleviate suffering, employ and empower people living in poverty, and build sustainable local economies in impoverished areas.

Over the past 15 years, Eden Reforestation Projects have planted over 330 million trees around the world and employed thousands of impoverished villagers.

Planting trees is one of the ways Mont is moving towards a climate-neutral status for our business, our gear and our customer's orders.

"We start by hiring the local villagers to plant trees.  This gives them a decent income so they can provide for their families again. As the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests begin to emerge and all the negative effects of deforestation begin to disappear."

High on the Main Range. By Robert Hofman

The high-pressure system sitting over the continent meant it was time for an overnight trip high on the main range of KNP. To travel light I took my Moondance 1 tent and Helium sleeping bag; this allowed a quick climb to the main range from Guthega.
