We all hope for a better future, especially for a healthy planet unaffected by climate change and pollution - and for that to be possible, we need to do our bit today. Every living being deserves a healthy climate and ample fresh air to breathe. However, we believe that this hope needs to translate into concrete action - which is why "Weplantree" was born. We are a social enterprise that gives it's best to create a better environment. We plant saplings in a scientific and planned manner to restore our planet’s green cover - this methodology has its roots in planning, hence the name "Weplantree".
We do more than just planting saplings - we take a scientific approach to planting them, with managerial and technical expertise that’s second to none. Our planet’s future depends on it.
We work with relevant authorities and technical experts to identify feasible swathes of land that are conducive to the planting process. Our long term vision enables us to identify the ideal sapling for its surroundings. For instance, saplings planted in city limits will be those that don’t grow beyond 10 feet so as to not hamper existing or upcoming power lines. Similarly, fruit bearing trees will be restricted to farm land so as to benefit the farmers tending to them.
We also actively enhance farmer welfare by planting saplings today that will be fruit-bearing trees tomorrow. Farmers don’t often plant fruit-bearing trees due to their capital and time intensive nature, but we not only plant these trees for farmers yet also guide and fund them on maintaining them until they attain self-sustaining growth. This not only provides the farmer with an additional income but increases the real estate value of the farmer’s land. In doing so, we also care for farmer welfare while working towards our environmental goals.
Our process makes it exceptionally easy for you to be a part of the change you want to see. This process allows you to plant as many trees as you’d like, just like how you’d order a hot meal or a cup of coffee.
We believe in keeping you updated at every step of the way, giving you the chance to see your sapling’s evolution through life. We regularly update our website with photos and videos of your sapling, and also send SMS & email regarding the status of your sapling - thereby allowing you to virtually track the sapling’s growth into a self sustaining tree.
Our saplings are planted at Mother Nature’s mercy, owing to which there arises a need to audit our saplings on a regular basis. We account for saplings that haven’t successfully grown due to unforeseen circumstances such as animal destruction or inability to grow. To mitigate these circumstances, we plant additional saplings right at the plantation stage and also replace damaged saplings with healthy saplings to ensure a 100% success rate at all our plantations. As our mission continues to progress, we will regularly release counts of our saplings and issue updates on how we plan to bring our ecological goals to life. This audit helps us in ensuring that your contributions will always lead to the growth of a new tree
WeplanTree is a corporate entity dedicated solely to India’s ecological advancement. We believe in the fundamental right to clean air and a healthy climate, and use the expertise of dedicated, committed professionals to bring this vision to life. Not just volunteers.
We use public areas for planting such as parks & boulevards We choose an area which is already protected in some way to make sure our saplings are not harmed by the animals or even by humans .
We have understood that the majority of farmers don’t plant fruit bearing trees as it is not only capital intensive but also time consuming . We work with farmers by providing them with fruit bearing or timber yielding trees to be planted on the peripheral of their farmland. With your support we provide them with all the resources to plant trees and we help them take care of it till it reaches self sustainability .
There are many people who own lands but are not into farming or into any form of forestry. Vacant lands are the major contributors in soil erosion as there is nothing binding the soil . We take such landlords into confidence and plant trees on their farmlands .
We evaluate the planting site based on
Based on the physical evaluation by our experts we make a list of saplings which are suitable for plantation site .
|Traditional method of planting||Kadnad method of planting|
|Traditional method of planting is where saplings are planted at a distance of about 6-10 feet apart from each other .These trees tend to grow wider as they are not restricted to grow vertical as they are not densely planted.||Kadnad is an Indian traditional dense forestry method of planting native saplings. Here the saplings are planted very close to each other such that 700-800 native saplings are planted in a space of just 1000 sq.ft. These are found to grow very fast as they are densely planted and they grow faster in search of sunlight .|
The saplings are nurtured till they reach self sustainability by following a systematic process wherein
are done on a regular & timely basis . Our regular nurturing & monitoring of the sapling helps in making sure we nurture the sapling into becoming a tree .
