We Are The Garden Keepers of Planet Earth
-The International Tree Project
Use of pesticides and fertilizers on farms has increased by 26-fold over the past 50 years, fueling increases in crop production globally. But there are serious environmental consequences. Indiscriminate pesticide and fertilizer application may pollute nearby land and water, and chemicals may wash into nearby streams, waterways and groundwater when it rains.
This is one of the biggest reasons for the steep decline of species, both in the animal world and the plant world. Many species in our world today are becoming endangered due to a loss of their primary habitat. Deforestation, agricultural land-space, water extraction, mining and human migration have either destroyed the only habitats the species can survive in or driven the species to extinction.
As our populations increase and more people move into areas where wildlife previously lived in abundance, new human-wildlife conflicts arise. Sadly, in many cases, wildlife is killed when they cause too big harm to farmers by hunting livestock or destroying crops.
High genetic vulnerability
Some species, such as the Cheetah, maintain low genetic diversity, which makes them less able to adapt when faced with challenges such as overhunting or habitat loss. This low genetic diversity also makes them more vulnerable to diseases and expressions of negative genetic mutations.

Why Trees Matter.
They are a major answer to some of our most pressing environmental problems. We take them for granted, but they are a near miracle. Through a natural process of alchemy called photosynthesis, trees turn one of the seemingly most insubstantial things of all — sunlight — into food for insects, wildlife and people.
Trees are nature’s water filters, capable of cleaning up the most toxic wastes, including explosives, solvents and organic wastes, largely through a dense community of microbes around the tree’s roots that clean water in exchange for nutrients, a process known as phytoremediation. Tree leaves filter air pollution. A 2008 study by researchers at Columbia University found that more trees in urban neighborhoods correlate with a lower incidence of asthma.
These Three Super Trees Can Protect Us From Climate Collapse
We Plant Trees Differently
By using drone technology we are able to plant trees up to 60x faster than traditional tree planting and can plant forests in remote locations that would otherwise be difficult to get to.
WHAT WE STAND FOR
As far as humankind can see, (46 billion light years in each direction) there is no other sign of intelligent life or living organisms. However, life on our planet is the least considered commodity and the most disregarded resource that is disappearing at en exponential rate.
We stand to solve this by uniting strong communities that work together to achieve forward thinking solutions that last a lifetime.
We encourage all life to flourish in smart-habitats while building a community that desires achieving scientific discoveries and advancing technology to sustainability coexist on Planet Earth. We share this planet with 8.7million other types of life and it is disappearing at an increasing rate. We the 21st century are responsible for the future and are taking action.
