Soneva Forest Restoration

The Soneva Foundation partnered with the P ATT Foundation to plant 511,920 trees covering 300 acres in the Chiang Mai region of Northern Thailand. We used a Framework Species Methodology, with guidance from the Forest Restoration Research Unit of Chiang Mai University, with 90 species of trees planted. Over a period of 7-8 years, seed-disbursing birds will increase the number of species further, creating a rich biodiverse forest. The project will mitigate an estimated 255,000 tonnes of CO2.
