The approach is to strategically reforest headwaters for over nine rivers that are vital to the provision of water to over 3 million people or 1/3 of the population of Haiti. The objective is to retain soil and conserve water both of which are under stressed.

OUR GOAL IS TO PLANT 1 MILLION TREES (Pinus occidentalis) AT LA VISITE NATIONAL PARK .



1Million trees at National Park L a Visite - Is an intensive reforestation pilot project on a minimum of 700 hectares of degraded land located at the Parc La Visite.



The approach is to strategically reforest water conservation points at watersheds which represent more than 9 points that feed the water table and a number of springs and rivers in the Southwest and West Departments.

More than one third of the population of Haiti receive ecological services from this location in terms of what is necessary for daily needs for food, energy and the framing of our lives.

Why Park la Visite as a site?

Park la Visite is a  great choice for the dual capacity for reforestation and water conservation. Haiti’s water table are currently in great danger of drying up and Park La Visite is in a unique location that regroups nine water springs whose branches head to various locations.


Moreover these are the points of origination and the water reservoir for two Departments in Haiti, the West which includes the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area, and the Southwest which includes Jacmel.

Reforestation at Parc La Visite holds great promise for future generations.

The disappearance of Haiti’s natural resources is a clear menace to our own survival, creating long term famine and chronic poverty. Losses in biodiversity in animals and plants will  also  be catastrophic.
