RPS supports TREE AID’s work in some of Sub-Saharan Africa’s poorest countries and is the charity’s leading corporate sponsor.

RPS also provides the charity with multidisciplinary technical support and training on project mapping and GIS applications, biodiversity assessment, land surveying and modelling water management options for its river trees programme. RPS is proud of its continued support of people and the environment in the fight against poverty.

The aim of TREE AID’s Bongo River Trees project, which was launched on 24 January 2012, is to break the cycle of environmental decline and poverty in one of the poorest traditional communities in Africa.

Progressive deforestation, soil erosion, soil fertility decline and the increased seasonal flooding and landscape aridity of recent

years can be combated very successfully at community level with the right education, community ownership, community volunteers (TREE AID has over 50,000) and the strategic deployment of trees, shrubs and vetiver grasses. Key to the strategy is the establishment of protected tree corridors and agroforestry zones along the Agansy, Nabakulga and Akasa river corridors north of the Vea Dam.

In southern Mali, RPS has supported a number of highly successful reforestation programmes and currently match funds the Greening Mopti project alongside the European Union. The project has established over 200,000 new trees of economic and environmental benefit in sixteen communities.

TREE AID was established as a charity in 1987 by a group of foresters in response to the famine in Africa, brought to public attention by Band Aid and Live Aid.

They wanted to provide a long term solution once the emergency relief efforts ended. They believed that trees could significantly reduce the vulnerability of communities in rural Africa’s drylands to drought and famine in the future.

Our current strategy expands on the original concept, focusing on forest management and income, food and medicines from trees.

  1. RPS are to be commended on their work in Africa. They are also to be commended for their considered management on the tree removal on the Lake St property. RPS, through its formative history and employment of locals, has a long association with Cairns.
