The species of trees that are planted depend on the project, and they are chosen based on their native habitat in the corresponding ecological zone.
Benefits of tree plantation for Elephants:
Tree plantation can provide numerous benefits for elephants, including:
Habitat: Trees provide food and shelter for elephants, and are a crucial component of their natural habitat.
Migration: Elephants require large areas to roam and migrate. Planting trees can create corridors that connect fragmented elephant habitats and allow for the movement of elephant populations.
Water conservation: Trees help conserve water by reducing soil erosion, increasing groundwater recharge, and maintaining stream flow. This provides critical water resources for elephants and other wildlife.
Climate change: Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change. This can help maintain the ecological balance of elephant habitats and support their long-term survival.
Overall, tree plantation is an essential tool in conserving elephant populations and their habitats.
