Who doesn’t like it when climate solutions directly restore and replenish nature and green cover?

This project, developed by SayTrees, restores degraded croplands in rural Karnataka. SayTrees exclusively works with small & marginal farmers with less than 2 ha. of land.

This solution not only increases agricultural productivity and farm income, and improves the overall well-being of the farm and farmers, but enhances the resilience of these farmers by getting them to adopt climate-smart agricultural practices. These lands are typically water-stressed and it is imperative that the farmers are better prepared for extreme variations in climatic conditions.

How this solution removes carbon
from the atmosphere!
01 Pre-Plantation
Site Identification and Farmer Enrollment Several parcels of degraded land are identified and the ones conducive for the project are shortlisted; additionally, farmers are made aware of the project features and benefits and enrolled
02 Plantation
Land Preparation and Planting The land is prepared for the project - including ploughing and improving soil nutrient quality, setting up drip-irrigation systems, fencing around the land etc; saplings are then planted in pits with commercially viable trees planted in the perimeter for easy harvest
03 Post-Plantation
Technical Support and Monitoring Our partner conducts periodic field visits to offer technical support on leading agroforestry practices, additional assistance on raw materials and farming inputs, as well as monitor the maintenance and management of the trees by the farmers
