Transforms Degraded Barren Land In Most African Countries

Since it was founded in 2015, the programme has planted tens of millions of trees each year in nine different countries ranging from Senegal and Mali to Tanzania and Kenya. In less than 10 years, it has reportedly restored a combined area of more than 41,000 hectares, which is about seven times the size of Manhattan.
This includes part of the African Union’s Great Green Wall initiative, a planned 8,000km-wide barrier of vegetation to hold back the deserts that are encroaching across the Sahel region. Organizers say this will be the largest natural structure on the planet, though it is still very much a work in progress.

      This is actually creative... holding back the desert could actually help other nations with deserts to reduce the rate at which the deserts are encroaching.

            "Trees for the Future" is a commendable initiative that is making a significant impact by transforming degraded barren land in African countries. Through their reforestation efforts, they are not only restoring the land but also contributing to environmental conservation and sustainable development in the region.

                  Rehabilitating degraded land by ecosystem restoration can vastly protect vital ecosystems.
