Your HeroTREEs Impact Report!

Training on keeping accurate records of the trees
Training on keeping accurate records of the trees

Dear Friend,

Thank you so much for your continued support, which has had a great impact over the last three months. This report will update you on the work APOPO in partnership with SAT has been up to, to empower farmers, save the important ecosystems of the Uluguru Mountains and educate people on better farming practices.

Your support has facilitated the training of 60 farmers specifically on transplanting trees, 32 monitoring visits to ensure that farmers are getting all the support they need to farm in a way that benefits both them and the environment.

The next three months’ plans:

  • Training in grafting techniques for farmers
  • Continued support for farmers with regard to their nursery management 
  • Continued map compilation so that we can better measure outcomes and understand where the need is greatest.
  • Continued site visits to support farmers, count and assess how planted trees are growing and provide further training where relevant.

We mentioned last time that we would be focussing on mapping the areas and farms that you help support, and we have indeed already prepared 156 maps of the farms! This survey will help us keep data on how many trees have been planted, what trees have not survived and why. We will also hope to get to a point where we can pinpoint on a map exactly where a tree has been planted! 

  • Find more indigenous seeds /seedlings as well as exotic tree species to establish in our nurseries
  • Take GPS measurements of farmers' plots with established trees, for the purpose of monitoring
  • Conduct follow-up visits to the farmers, ensuring we have equipped them with everything they need for project success.

HeroTREEs is a concept that only exists thanks to your support – thank you.

As a result, more than planting trees and protecting the planet (which is pretty important we know!), your support also means that farmers learn how to better manage the land leading to sustainable change. Your support helps improve water quality for neighbouring villages and cities in Tanzania and indeed, it helps protect the species living in this ecologically important part of the world by protecting the habitats in which they thrive.

Thank you.
