Urban Forestry Can Mitigate Climate Change

Urban Canopy Makes Cities More Efficient, Resilient

Urban forests will play an even more important role as we seek solutions to maximize the quality of life in our cities, while reducing energy consumption and maximizing the uptake of carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants.

Sacred Seedlings is a reforestation (including urban areas) and carbon offset program operated in cooperation with indigenous groups around the globe. Those who have always lived closest to the earth, and respected it the most, are putting their wisdom to work to help save the planet and their cultures for future generations.

reforestation and forest conservation

We are coordinating a global forest conservation and reforestation program that will help offset carbon build-up in the atmosphere and mitigate the effects of climate change. The program will generate numerous benefits:

  • Offset carbon in the atmosphere, reduce energy consumption and air pollution.
  • Reforest tribal lands, public lands, inner cities, and private property around the globe.
  • Preserve wildlife habitat and green spaces for communities.
  • Generate jobs for indigenous people around the globe.
