8 Billion Trees Review: Helping the Friends of Usambara Society Plant Thousands of Trees

8 Billion Trees was formed by Mike Powell and Jon Chambers to help combat deforestation all around the world. Their goal is to plant as many trees as possible to restore habitats, fight climate change, and provide peoples all around the world a way to escape extreme poverty through planting and caring for trees.

Focused on making a difference in Tanzania, 8 Billion Trees partnered with the Friends of Usambara Society almost immediately to begin restoring the Usambara Mountains where severe deforestation has led to habitat destruction, soil erosion, and the disruption of natural water cycles.Through the powerful donations of 8 Billion Trees, the Friends of Usambara Society has already been able to plant tens of thousands of trees where they are desperately needed, while educating the young people of Tanzania on the importance of planting trees.

Together, 8 Billion Trees and the Friends of Usambara Society have been able to make a remarkable difference—and it is only the beginning.

As 8 Billion Trees continues to spread awareness on the effects of deforestation, the Friends of Usambara will be able to plant thousands more trees in the fight against climate change and habitat loss.

8 Billion Trees passes our review with flying colors: they truly are an amazing group focused on making a difference in every way possible

Tree Planting at the Ridges

Placing trees directly on the soil surface and then hilling their root system with the soil from the interrows is a modification of the traditional way of tree planting. In this process, there are ridges formed where trees can grow within the whole cultivation period. This way of planting can provide disadvantageous conditions because of the soil over drying when there is a lack of precipitation,Friends of Usambara Green Team is working hard to restore the mountains nature, we are daily planting trees and so far half of our target of planting 15 million trees achieved, plant with us on info@usambaratravels.com
