Gift Trees In Guatemala
Why plant trees in Guatemala?
Guatemala is one of the top 10 countries most affected by climate change and one of the most vulnerable to natural disasters.
- The rainy season starts later and finishes earlier, and downpours are concentrated into shorter periods of time, often triggering landslides and flooding of entire towns.
- Deforestation is one of Guatemala’s main environmental problems; from 1990-2005 the country lost 17.5% of its woodland, equivalent to 7.5% of the country’s total geographical area.
