About Cornillon, Haiti

Unfortunately the third hungriest country in the world with only 2 percent of the original forest remaining. The connection between poverty and deforestation is undeniable, especially for a population that relies on agriculture.

The world turned its eyes towards Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, but the devastation caused by frequent hurricanes and other storms often goes unnoticed. Storms hit Haiti often, but project farmers have greatly reduced their vulnerability.

Through partnership, smallholder farming families in Haiti are anchoring the roots of hope both for today and tomorrow. By planting trees and implementing soil conservation methods, they are preventing erosion and ensuring better protection against natural disasters. By using sustainable agriculture methods that restore the land’s fruitfulness, they are increasing their food production and incomes. And by forming Village Savings and Loan Associations, they are creating financial safety nets.

More Places We Plant

  • California

    Devastated by wild fires this year, California needs our help now more than ever. We're planting trees in the Plumas National Forest to help recoup the 65,000 acres burned in the 2007 Moonlight Fire.

  • Florida

    Recent years of unhealthy forests have been major contributors to Florida's disastrous wildfires so we've decided on this project in Putnam Co., FL in efforts to help restore this biodiverse ecosystem.

  • Oregon

     Forests are shrinking on state and private land in Oregon, where an estimated 522,000 acres of forest cover have disappeared since 2000. That's an area six times larger than the city of Portland, equal to more than half of Oregon's designated state forests. 

  • Colorado

    These precious forests face serious threats, including insect infestations, long-term drought, and forest fires. Unhealthy forests set the stage for exceptionally large, devastating wildfires that significantly increase risks of dangerous flooding, extreme erosion, degraded water quality and reduced water storage capacity.

  • Senegal

    46.7% of Senegal's population lives below the poverty line. We're focusing on the reforestation of Fatick, a town of about 25,000 in western Senegal.

  • U.S. National Forests

    Working on behalf of the American public, the NFF leads forest conservation efforts and promotes responsible recreation. We believe these lands, and all they provide, are an American treasure and are vital to the health of our communities.

  • Madagascar

    Madagascar is more than just an island from an animated movie. It’s a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land.

  • Pacific NW Orca Project

    Planting trees along rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest restores habitat for the endangered orca. Trees help reduce pollution and improve the health and quantity of salmon for the orca to eat!
