Operations

SavePlanetEarth tree nurseries are developed to produce quality saplings and earth balls for the environment to achieve our afforestation targets in a self-sustainable and financially feasible manner. With the additional benefits of job creation and the ability to select the best genes for the native species in the region.
All nurseries contribute to increasing yields of plantations and dry land rejuvenation as this is an essential need for increasing carbon sinks and stores. Thus, increasing the green canopy as well as providing an important role to the nation’s economy.
We provide favourable conditions to ensure successful germination and early-stage growth, eliminating soil diseases and increasing weed control. SPE nursery sites strive for low energy emissions for watering and carbon neutral logistics therefore reducing the carbon footprint.

About

For all SPE nurseries, we plan according to;  location, size, water type with the right TDS, semi-skilled labour force and proximity of the seedlings to the planting locations. SPE nursery sites have the following requirements which are important in the efficiency of the development. All locations are easily accessible and have a good permanent water supply either gravity fed water pipelines from streams or rainwater harvested systems.

Locations

Nation-wise, the locations are initially prioritized based on their vulnerability against the effects of climate change as well as of the necessities and outreach of a “helping hand” in their endeavors to address and tackle environmental issues. SPE intends to operate based on these criteria while ever-expand its reach to all nations across the globe.

Nursey Considerations:

Some key points to evaluate in the design plan are sourcing of plants native and indigenous, seasonal seeds, preparing the site, weed and invasive species control, compost mixture, protection of external factors with installation of natural fencing, pest control, low energy intensive Irrigating for saplings. We always introduce long term maintenance and upkeep plans.

Tree Species Considerations:

At SPE, species of trees are chosen for seed germination and sapling propagation based on the following areas.
Site characteristics of the planting area, size and shape, Location and exposure to external factors to reduce risks of human/nature conflict, soils and water drainage, rainfall, easy access and serviceability for the community and resistance to diseases. Therefore, native species are raised above all for sequestration rates and to increase the green canopy.

Biodiversity Considerations:

The introduction of bees is key to better pollination on farmlands and planting sites as well as SPE nurseries. Bees require a reliable source of nutrition throughout the year just like other animals so that they do not suffer nutritional stress which can result in dying bee colonies. SPE aims to meet other UN SDGs requirements by planting multi-purpose trees and plants that feed bees on all sites along with training in apiaries.
