A non-profit society with a focus on connecting people with nature through tree planting as a reminder of the reciprocal relationship we all have with Mother Earth. Planting as many trees as possible, Sequoia Solution aims to address climate change while supporting and facilitating the building of bridges within indigenous and non-indigenous communities.
Heal the Earth - Heal the Humans
It is our sacred duty
In response to growing concern around our climate and ecological crisis, and specifically in a local community context, concern regarding the mass die-out of our iconic Western Red Cedar trees, Sequoia Solution was born from a single idea to help Heal the Humans, while Healing the Planet through the remarkably simple act of planting baby trees.
From a humanitarian perspective, this simple act also creates the profound opportunity to introduce communities and foster ongoing healing friendships between indigenous and non-indigenous neighbours around this common goal of planting trees, in a society where different races of people often live lives with little opportunity for paths to cross - in a state of residual colonial separateness and apartheid.
The world is burning fossil fuels and emitting carbon dioxide at a destabilizing level.
“We are in a planetary emergency.”
"Human activity is causing irreparable harm to the life on this world. Many current life forms will be extinct by the end of this century. We may right now be causing the Sixth Mass Extinction in Earth’s history. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the earth we plant in, the food we eat, and the beauty and diversity of nature that nourishes our psychological well-being – our very health – all are being corrupted and compromised by the human values behind our political and economic systems and consumer-focussed lifestyles." - https://rebellion.earth/
Planting trees is the most effective method of carbon capture, and Sequoias sequester up to a phenomenal 3.5 metric tonnes of CO2 annually. Sequoias are not only the world's largest trees, but they are also the fastest-growing coniferous trees. They can grow 4 feet per year with growth ring up to 2 inches wide. This makes Sequoias the best solution for carbon capture. Living up to 3500 years, your Sequoia is also drought and wildfire resistant and provides homes for animals, clean air and water filtration. Adopt Your Sequoia and you will help to heal Mother Earth - thanks for caring!
