OURF's Adopt-a-Tree Program
Planting trees are a wonderful way to commemorate special events, give a gift, or honor the memory of a loved one. Trees provide a host of benefits whether they are planted in your own back yard or across the globe. Trees can, like sponges, help sequester carbon and thereby reduce the impact of man-made CO2 emissions. Locally, trees provide habitat for wildlife, food for people and animals, and stabilise the soil. A gift of a tree lasts for generations.
Working in conjunction with its Indonesian partners, Orang Utan Republik Foundation (OURF) is offering the opportunity to support the planting and maintenance of trees in Sumatra through an Adopt-a-Tree Certificate Program. Planting trees to contribute towards the reforestation of land adjacent to orangutan habitat.
