Help protect the mother earth. Only 7% of wild Aquilaria trees produce Agarwood. This has caused and still is causing the unnecessary cutting down of wild Aquilaria trees in the forest as it is necessary to cut down the tree in order to see whether it is infected and produced Agarwood. The cutting down of trees causes billions of tons of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) to be released into the air. About 20% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions are a result of deforestation. An improvement essential to the sustainability of the environment is the planting of trees, both to relieve the global shortage of trees for lumber, pulpwood and firewood, and as important sources of energy and income for the developing world. Planting will also help to reduce the effects of global warming. Your investment will directly cause the plantation of new trees!
