Thank you Kanika,

1. We do not expect families to set aside large pieces of land: We creatively use the land owned by the family. If they can spare this - great. If they can not we plant trees all around their compounds, gardens, kraal where they graze their animals to create a ring fence around but at the same time leave them with enough space to carry out other activities.

2. Harvest happen from 5 years after planting depending on the tree species planted, however the families do not have to wait till then to earn from the trees planted. Through the corporate gifting they earn annually based on number of trees surviving and we are looking into carbon trade mechanisms as well to generate more revenue and allow families to earn more from the growing trees

Thank you.

Ashley Tillman looking forward to any feedback from you.
