The South African Reforestation Trust is registered as a Non Profit Organisation with the Department of Social Development of the Republic of South Africa (registration number 200-956 NPO).

Our forest-sites are dotted around the Cape : The Overberg, Grootvadersbosch near Swellendam, Wilderness and the Boland. Each reforestation site is independently managed and operated by professionals on the basis of common rules as set up by the South African Reforestation Trust.

The forestation of the South African Reforestation Trust is a biodiversity enhancement program, only locally occurring indigenous tree species are planted.
The forestation sites are under management for fire and erosion protection and ongoing removal of alien invasive vegetation and are protected.
The reforestation sites are a sanctuary for both flora and fauna. Harvesting of indigenous trees will not take place and hunting and restricting movement of naturally occurring wildlife will not be allowed.
No forestation will take place in areas with existing pristine and undisturbed indigenous vegetation and as a consequence will only take place in disturbed areas where rehabilitation intervention is necessary or highly required.

Please check out and support the programs running as part of the South African Reforestation Trust platform.
