Adopt A Tree
Adopt a tree: compensate for CO2 and receive your certificate in plantable paper
Adopt a tree and support a local operator who will take care of it for a year and keep it healthy. You will compensate the CO2 and you will receive, with the adoption of at least 10 Trees, a certificate in plantable paper that you can then give away to stakeholders, customers and business partners. An original way to support reforestation in the areas most at risk, helping the planet, but also the fauna and local populations, and to raise awareness among the people close to you by informing them about the risks of deforestation.
The tree: the symbol of life
Trees absorb carbon dioxide and return oxygen through chlorophyll photosynthesis. They are the “green lungs” of the earth because they protect the entire planet from climate change and from the greenhouse effect, thus also contributing to energy saving, as well as the survival of local populations and fauna. Indeed, among the effects of deforestation there is the desertification of areas previously used for grazing and agriculture.
Reforest for us and for the planet: Sedicialberi project
Adopt a tree and support the Sedicialberi project, engaged in reforestation interventions in those areas of the planet that are most at risk. By choosing one of the trees proposed by iGreen you can contribute to the forest regenerationin the Umian river region, India, or in the estuary of Estero Real, Nicaragua, recognized as one of the wetlands of international importance by the Ramsar convention.
Adopt a tree and compensate for CO2 emissions
According to the estimates of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change UNFCCC, a tree can compensate for 10 kg of CO2 per year. Adopting one of the trees proposed by iGreenGadgets and Plan Vivo Foundation, you will help a local operator to take care of the tree you have chosen, and you will participate for an entire year in the production of oxygen for the planet, contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Choose your tree from three different species
The Cesalpinia Velutina with its clusters of yellow flowers supports local beekeeping and guarantees water and shade for crops and animals.
Gliricida Sepium, widespread in Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, offers shade and protection to coffee, tea and cocoa plantations with its wide and flat leaves, and with roots that retain water, keeping the soil fertile.
Finally, the Pinus Kesiya grows almost exclusively in southern Himalaya and supplies wood and resin to the local populations, who derive a paint from the resin whose production is one of the main sources of livelihood in the area. However, it is one of the species most affected by deforestation.
Follow your tree and let your customers and business partners adopt it
Choose and adopt a tree, compensate for CO2 and receive your certificate in plantable paper (from 10 trees),to be kept or donated to the people in whose name you have adopted the tree. The Adopt a Tree and Plant a Tree initiatives, through the PlantCare program, also allow you to water your tree regularly and to find out about its health and the amount of CO2 that has contributed to reduce,and you can renew your adoption as many times as you want.
MEET THE FARMER OF OUR PROJECT IN NICARAGUA

Hight: fino a 15m
Tipo di fogliame: leaf and flowers.
It can reach a height of 15 meters and the leaves extend up to 21 centimeters. When the flowers are completely open, the petals, generally pink in color, reach 15mm.
Altezza: fino a 45m
Type of foliage: evergreen
It reaches a height of 30–35 m and the trunk diameter can reach 1 m. It is a pine tree with bunches of 3 needles (3 needles 15-20 cm long grow from a bunch). The pinions are 5–9 cm large and the seeds are 1.5–2.5 cm long.
INDIA PROJECT– Khasi Hills
India Project – Khasi Hills
Project Goal: offset more than 318,000 tons of CO2
Location: Umiam Watershed, Khasi • Hills District, Meghalaya,India
Main aims of the project: restoration and protection of wildlife along the Umiam River, which connects sacred forests; landscape forest regeneration.
Duration of the project: 2010 – 2021
In the eastern Himalayas, between mountain clouds and natural pine forests, there is the Meghalaya Region, India. A part of the region boasts the second recorded rainfall in the world. Despite the conversion of many indigenous Khasis to Christianity, many still retain animistic beliefs. Respect for the spirits of nature has contributed to preserving natural resources within designated areas such as sacred forests.
However, in recent decades, mining, fires, increased consumption of firewood and transformation of land into agriculture have degraded much of the forest.
With the support of I/INGOs, in recent years this fundamental spiritual value has been exploited to preserve nature. By combining new science with ancient beliefs, a Federation of 10 indigenous kingdoms has been created in the Khasi Hills to manage a long-term REDD + project. The project was certified in 2013 and is the first REDD + project in India.
Nicaragua PROJECT – CommuniTree
Nicaragua Project – CommuniTree
Project Goal: 3.000.000 Trees
Location: San Juan de Limai, Nicaragua
Main aims of the project: Preserving biodiversity by reforesting degraded areas
Durata del progetto: 2010 – 2035
The CommuniTree Carbon program (formally known as the Limay Community Carbon Project) is a community-supported reforestation initiative that groups agricultural families in the municipality of San Juan de Limay and Somoto in Nicaragua, and aims to develop ecosystem services for the carbon credit market.
Reforestation is needed to restore ecosystems, improve livelihoods and tackle climate change. Taking into account the causes of deforestation, the communities involved reforest and manage the wooded areas of their land in exchange for payments for eco-systemic services.
The region is located in a critical area at one of the most important estuaries in the country, Estero Real. This estuary is home to one of the largest extensions of mangroves and migratory birds in the country, and has been recognized by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, of international importance. The reforestation program plays a fundamental role in regulating the hydrological cycle, providing important benefits for water and biodiversity, both locally and internationally.
