There are trees in Ferncliffe older than anyone alive in South Africa today. Help them survive another lifetime.
You’ll receive a paper or digital certificate, plus annual updates on how your individual tree is doing for three years (and – if we’re both lucky – the creatures seen near it, or in its branches). We’ll also monitor it and ensure it isn’t swamped or strangled by aliens. If you want to keep following your tree’s progress after the three-year reporting period, you’ll have first option to readopt.
Artist’s prints are available for an extra donation.
Cape Fig #1
A tree that feeds all sorts of game, and right now anchors soil in a pretty little ravine with a stream that flows after rain.
Forest Bushwillow #1
Swamped by bamboo and with no indigenous neighbours in sight, this elderly tree with its impressive girth could provide new saplings with shelter.
Natal Fig #1
A fine specimen with considerable heft and characteristic aerial roots, growing in a special indigenous forest corridor with a number of other mature trees.
A lone green cloud of quinine leaves floats just above endless bamboo stems. This tree deserves better neighbours!
White Ironwood #1
A strong, tall tree that’s shot up above its neighbours despite the odds – but its position in the sun is now under threat.
