TREEZ - The Reforestation of the Environment and Ecosystem of Zomba

Team

We strive to protect and preserve one day at a time

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it is not.

Dr Seuss - The Lorax

Due to the increase in population and the need for woodfuel for cooking and heating, Malawi has lost 85% of its trees in the last 20 years, and as the graph shows: at current rates of population growth and deforestation, by 2025 the country will no longer have enough biomass to sustain the population. 

Zomba TREEZ aims to mitigate the damage caused by the loss of the biomass and help reduce the effects of climate change in the Zomba area. Through raising awareness, tree planting, promotion of natural regeneration and fire prevention we aim to increase water retention, reduce soil erosion, provide clean air and water, and protect and preserve Malawi’s biodiversity.

This is not unique to Malawi. Deforestation is a global issue; environmental degradation affects us all and the whole world is suffering the devastating consequences.

TREEZ is a small organization and we work at village level. Hand in hand with the communities, we are planting trees, protecting ecosystems and raising awareness, though sport, music and learning

The graph below says it all, and that is why we all need to act, NOW.
