Project Description

The Gifted Tree’s planting project is in Monchique, Portugal (the Algarve region), in the southern most area of the country. Portugal has experienced severe forest fires in the last several years that have traumatized the inhabitants, the landscape and the economy of this region. The ambitious planting project we are participating in hopes to start restoring the thousands of acres that have been destroyed. This tree planting project will make it possible to restore degraded ecosystems in the absence of natural regeneration, to strengthen the reception of biodiversity, and to make the tree groves more stable thanks in particular to a diversity of locally adapted species. The species be planted in this project include cork oak, fag oak, poplar, eucalyptus and white willow. Finally, forest fruit trees accompany these species, notably strawberry.

Once connected to the map, feel free to zoom in and out to get a feel of the general planting
area as well as its location in Portugal, Europe, and the world. Please understand that this is the
general area of the tree planting. Your tree will be planted among thousands of other gift trees and
there is no plaque designating the gift tree and visiting the tree is unfortunately not possible.
Know that the tree planting project is making a monumental difference for the earth and
opening a new doorway to the world for future generations.

Preserve Their Legacy For Future Generations.
