The Millennium Forest is a large re-forestation project which is now eight years old. During that time over 60 acres of land have been planted with trees endemic to St Helena. This is satisfactory but an enormous task lies ahead. Almost 600 acres of designated forest land remain to be planted.
Current project funding will last until March 2009. A funding source to continue the work beyond that date is not yet secured.
The St Helena National Trust is appealing to you help us continue this vital work.
This is a long term project which will continue for several decades. To secure the financial future for our re-forestation plans and the important biodiversity benefits we seek, we need to attract a substantial sum of money.
Donations you make to the Re-Forestation Fund will remain in the fund in perpetuity, as a lasting benefit to St Helena and its unique, beautiful but fragile natural environment.
We will use only the income generated from donations to the fund to pay for equipment, wages and other recurring costs which need to be paid for to keep the Re-Forestation project going.
Our interim target is to raise £50,000 by April 2009. Our ultimate target is £250,000 by January 2012.
