South Africa implements Ten Million Trees Programme

Posted by Ashna Brijmohun on 9 November 2021

The Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE) has implemented the Ten Million Trees Programme which aims to plant more trees in South Africa over the next five years.

The Ten Million Trees Programme is a national message to all South African citizens to actively take part in the development and improvement of South Africa. The programme aims to attain environmental sustainability, maintain the protection of the environment, and ultimately realize the socioeconomic benefits it will have on South Africans.

The DFFE is requesting that South African individuals and all South African organizations participate in the Ten Million Trees Programme.

South Africans can help by planting trees:

  • in honour of loved ones or sentimental events
  • to celebrate achievements
  • to combat the impact of climate change
  • to decorate houses, gardens, and other surrounding areas.
  • to alleviate food shortages
  • to promote the conservation of biodiversity in South Africa
  • to honour and inspire generations to come
