In partnership with Shanghai Roots and Shoots, Shama properties in China are committed to collectively raised RMB 50,000.- to plant 2,000 trees for the Million Tree Project each year, aiming to fight Climate Change by improving both ecological environment and livelihood of the local communities in Inner Mongolia.
Trees are sourced locally from tree farms and local farmers are engaged in the tree planting and maintain the trees growing on their land. The farmers are licensed to harvest trees that have reached maturity, on the condition that they replant on the same plot. During the trees’ infancy, local farmers are encouraged to inter-plant crops in order to generate extra income that helps alleviate poverty in the community.
The first Shama China Forest was planted in April 2014 followed by the second forest in June 2016.
