What is the right tree in the right place?

BGCI’s approach is to focus on the right trees in the right place – encouraging the preservation of indigenous species in their natural habitats, rather than replacing them with exotic (non-native) species.

The right tree species help us to address our greatest challenges

The Biodiversity Crisis

Millions of species of plants, animals, insects, and bacteria depend on the right species of trees to survive.

The Climate Crisis

The right trees can address issues of carbon emissions, soil stability, water scarcity, and energy.

The Poverty Crisis

Nature provides benefits for people and the planet – once extinct, species can never be replaced.
