The 1 trillion trees project

The 1 trillion trees project

The 1 trillion trees project is a concerted global effort, starting in 2020, to plant 1 trillion trees and offset 10 years worth of carbon emissions in the atmosphere.

Trees play a unique role in carbon sequestration, soil stability, and biodiversity enrichment. Globally, the land masses of Russia, China, and USA combined are capable of hosting re-forestation efforts, which would enable us to plant 1 trillion trees in the coming years. Collectively, this can empower rural community development and significant ecological resilience in the face of the threats of climate change in the 21st century.

Langtang, Nepal

Langtang, Nepal

Langtang National Park, located 100km north of Kathmandu in Nepal, is a unique ecosystem and site of endemic species. With roaming snow leopards, red pandas, musk deer, and many endemic bird species, the National Park is a site of concerted wildlife and conservation interest.

Established in 1976, Langtang is the oldest national park in Nepal. It is home to 18 ecosystem types, from tropical forests to alpine meadows and tundra. 

Road building and intensive construction and expansion are destabilising soils and threatening these ecosystems, however. Tree planting can help to stabilise soils, as well as build community cohesion, and work towards harmony in the National Park of Langtang.

Vision 2022

Vision 2022

PSD Nepal is partnering with European organisations to launch a tree planting program - hosted by Vision 2022. The year 2022 is the Visit Nepal Year for global tourism, with over 2 million visitors expected.

Tree planting will take place in Langtang National Park - Rasuwa district - in the villages of Syabru Besi, Kyanjim, Surkha, and Sherpagoan, with a view to stabilising soils, limiting erosion from road building, replenishing endemic forests, building tree cover, and improving climate resilience.
