Sri Lanka


Sri Lanka is a tropical island nation situated in the Indian Ocean. Due to its close proximity to the equator, Sri Lanka is prone to hot climates – with temperatures averaging (monthly) between 22°C (72°F) and 33°C (92°F) in the lowlands, as well as wet climates via the occasional monsoon rainfall – averaging more than 50 inches (1,270 mm) per year in most parts of the country.

The country is also a bustling haven of flora and fauna – with a sizable portion of its land area occupied with forests, grasslands, and dozens of major rivers.

Like many countries, Sri Lanka is also experiencing the adverse effects of climate – caught between harmful droughts from the hot seasons and destructive floods brought on by the wet season’s heavier rainfalls. Roughly 50 percent of its citizens living in low-lying, coastal areas are also in danger of the potentially-imminent sea level rise – a similar dilemma faced by many other island nations with such vulnerabilities.

About the Trees

Our team of Holistic Land Management experts conducts both quantitative and qualitative research to select the appropriate plant and tree species for afforestation based on several criteria. These criteria include carbon sequestration capacity, cost of plants, reproducibility, growth rate, environmental compatibility (soil, temperature, rainfall, moisture level, fire hazard, diseases), environmental effects (transpiration rate, evergreen or not, soil erosion control, beauty, wildlife attraction, soil stabilizer), and uses (medical, constructional, edibles, or fodder).


We prioritize maximum plant biodiversity to attract local wildlife, while ensuring that the planted tree species are native and not invasive. Our approach takes into consideration the environmental and situational factors unique to each location.


Additionally, our tree planting practices align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, ensuring that our efforts not only benefit the environment but also the communities we serve.
