Trees for the Future

A very young farmer harvests stringbeans on the Ricarte family farm in the Philippines. TREES has been working in the Philippines for many years: it was one of the places where our founder (Dave Deppner) developed the idea of the forest garden. This agroforestry model combines tree species with food and cash crops to help the community feed itself and earn a living, while removing pressure from remaining stands of native forests. A win-win for local residents and for the environment:
