In forests and in rural and urban environments alike, trees play an integral role in the equilibrium of our planet — especially when it comes to climate regulation and conserving biodiversity. And yet more than 13 million hectares of forests disappear from our planet every year, mainly in areas of tropical rainforest. France is no different: trees and hedges bordering fields are being cut back at a rate of 11,500 km a year.
Since urgent action is needed, the MDM Foundation is committed to protecting our trees and forests all over the world. With our assistance and financial support, associations are on the ground setting up protection, conservation and recovery programmes, aimed at and led by local populations. We are proud to have supported 53 projects in 19 countries since late 2015. Find out more!
