Carbon dioxide is one of the greenhouse gases contributing to global warming and subject to the Kyoto Protocol. Carbon emissions from deforestation, the burning of fossil fuels, changes in land use, and other human activities are increasing, while the earth's ability to soak up, or "fix" the carbon, is decreasing because of ocean and forest changes.

Reforestation is a way to help restore the balance. Planting trees, especially quick-growing native trees that will not be logged or burned, removes carbon from the cycle and sequesters, or "fixes" it within the wood itself.

Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ plants 30 native trees in the Monarch Reserve in Mexico. These fast-growing, tall, thick trees, will sequester 1/3 metric ton of carbon each (at a conservative estimate). After progressive thinning, half the trees will remain, sequestering 5 metric tons of carbon and removing it from the atmosphere for as long as the trees stand.

The types of trees are chosen based on the individual site's requirements, and are drawn from: Pinus pseudostrobus ("Pseudostrobus Pine"), Pinus greggii ("Greggii Pine"), Pinus michoacana ("Michoacan Pine"), Cupressus lindleyii ("White Cedar"), and Abies religiosa (Oyamel Fir").


Forests for Monarchs is a project of La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, Inc., a U.S. non-profit organization, in partnership with La Cruz Habitat Protection Project - Mexico in support of the planting and management of sustainable new forests in Michoacan, Mexico and beyond.
