Plant Income Providing Trees in Haiti


Coffee and Cacao trees provide farmers with valuable income AND promote reforestation in a country with less than 5% tree coverage.
1 seedling = 20 years of income
  • $5 plants 20 coffee or cacao seedlings
  • $10 plants 40 coffee or cacao seedlings
  • $25 plants 100 coffee or cacao seedlings
  • $100 plants 400 coffee or cacao seedlings

Coffee trees have a perfect root structure for holding delicate mountain soil in place: horizontal roots stretch for meters.

Since coffee provides income, they won’t be cut down for firewood.

Coffee trees thrive in the shade of larger trees, and therefore they serve as protectors of the forest (shade trees won’t be cut down either).
