Haiti Will Plant 1.2 Million Trees on May 1

Deforestation

Deforestation devastates Haiti. Approximately 98% of the trees have been cut down for firewood, the chief source of heat for cooking. Deforestation leads to soil erosion, which leads to desertification, destructive floods, declining food production, and greater poverty. According to this plan some 1.2 million trees will be planted on May 1. The project will be accompanied by publicity, an environmental education program, and the establishment of forest guards to prevent cutting. Such efforts have been attempted before.
