Commitment to Action

Enabling Sustainable Agroforestry in Developing Nations

Commitment by

The Timberland Company

In 2010, The Timberland Company committed to developing a large scale agro-forestry program within deforested, rural Haiti and to significantly scale up an existing program in China's Horqin Desert. The programs will support sustainable agriculture, environmental restoration, and socio-economic development for local peasant farmers who lead the development and management of forests and tree nurseries (that support reforestation and watershed management). Each project will supply the farmers with seed, fertilizer, and training to help them improve crop production and integrate trees into their farming practices.
