Review | Commission Forest of Peace on International Day of Peace


National Children’s Day (Thai: วันเด็กแห่งชาติ)

After the devastating floods a few years ago the founders of Forest of Peace had every reason to celebrate Christmas 2010…all newly planted baby teak trees replacing perished ones have successfully anchored their roots in the new soil and have already grown more than 3 feet.
Forester Pichai and his family replaced 230 baby teak trees bringing the lot back to the 1,600 trees that can be adopted through Forest of Peace’s project “Khok Thai 2010 – Adopt a Tree”. By Adopting A Tree the adoptive parent supports Forest of Peace’s initiative to counteract carbon dioxide emission (trees absorb poisonous CO2, the main greenhouse gas, and produce life-supporting O2). Latest since the recent climate meeting in Cancun, where 2011 was announced to be the “Year of the Forest”, the message is loud and clear: the planting of trees is paramount to secure human existence in the future.

2010/11 – vast amounts of Thailand and Southeast Asia have been destroyed by the worst flood in 50 years. People lost their lives, homes and lively-hoods and will be affected for years to come.
