The story of 3-FORCE Show your family and friends your forest


Plant 1 tree per month … choose the membership that suits you best.

OR •

As of 100 trees you can send in the reason why you want to plant a forest, plus text, pictures, links or videos to update your forest. We integrate your personal data into your forest for free. Explore some existing templates or create a template yourself.

For memberships we keep this high standard of personalization by grouping single trees in blocks of 100trees. Invite your family and friends to visit your trees!


• Why is climate changing? What are the consequences of a changing climate? • What can you do? Tree planting is simple, cheap and efficient. Trees protect millions of acres due to their hydrating character. They are like a sun blocker Factor 50 for the soil. 1.5billion people suffer water shortages unless we plant trees … Lots of trees.

Read on for a unique and bold response.


Why does the Climate change? Climate changes because each of us produces statistically between 1,000,000kg (2,000,000lb) almost 2,000,000kg (4,000,000lb) of CO2 during our life. Click on the picture, select your country and find out how much ton (metric tons) CO2 you produce. Dive this number by 10 – that’s the number of trees you are supposed to plant.


Too hot


Too much wind


Too dry The High pressure areas (red) are dominant, they are cloudless areas with dry air. It’s air coming from the high atmosphere 9miles/15km down. Too wet The Low pressure (blue) are the drain holes of the atmosphere where more than before flowing water together.

In Mexico alone each year 1 million people move because of drought.

According to the World Bank worldwide 1.2 billion people will suffer from lack of water supply (high pressure areas see previous page)

The weather for everyone, but what can you do about it?


• Global warming does not stop because no one is willing to give up oil, gas and coal - on the contrary. • So by 2100 this planet will be 5.4F (3°C) warmer. • You can expect at least a doubling of the storm frequency in low pressure areas. • Longer droughts in high pressure areas and intense rains are inevitable

• 1.2billion people already are suffering from drought.(ref. World Bank)

How do you solve this? • By funding food aid, hospitals or education? • By installing more windmills or solar panels? And further …

The weather is there for everyone, but what can you do about it?


Tree planting: The most efficient and cheapest method In a nutshell, it means that trees hydrate the soil much like sun cream factor 50: One tree absorbs roughly 1,000 kg CO2 For about 1,000€ you plant 1000 trees (1ha) and absorb 1 million kg of CO2. This technology is simple, cheap and efficient.

3-FORCE can count on the support of the masters in sustainability, the last 800 Maya people, which have offered 50acre/20ha of their land to restore. Fascinating!

In a second phase we want to support projects in arid regions such as Sahel, Kenya, Uganda, Congo. Thanks to the technique of FMNR in Niger alone 200million trees got planted.

“Slash and burn" results in lots of CO2 emissions and low productivity. In a third phase we want to transform this technique thoroughly .

3-FORCE has the support of the Lacandon and Shiwiar (part 1/3) 3-Force has learned a lot and has the support of the Lacandon. They are the last descendants of the Mayans who were only recently discovered. Trees are an important part of their lifestyle. Half of 400,000ha of the Lacandon jungle has disappeared the last 50 years. 4000 of the 8000 plant species are threatened in Mexico by 2050. 3-Force protects a small piece world heritage together with these masters in sustainability. Plant with 3-FORCE 247acre/100ha in the area of ​the Lacandon and Shiwiar. Get personally acquainted with a lifestyle that appeals to the imagination.

3-FORCE stands for FMNR (part 2/3)

FMNR or Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration. In the Sahel, a farmer was regarded lazy as he did not cleared all the trees, on top of that farmers believed trees would decrease productivity. This tradition dates back to times when there was abundant precipitation and groundwater. Recently there were virtually no trees in Niger. Today, thanks to the formidable efforts of two champions: Tony Rinaudo and Peter Weston We count instead of 1Tree per hectare 40 up to 140Trees per hectare - good for more than 200million trees in Niger. Plant with 3-FORCE 100Trees per ha A quick and easy way to improve the living standards of farmers in the Sahel.

3-FORCE production increases if charcoal is digged in (part 3/3) Are you also putting fire to part of your revenues at the end of the month? The “slash and burn” technique turns valuable nutrients into “GAS”. 3-FORCE suggests the organic matter “TO HEAT” (in kiln). Unlike a burning process the same material produces “SOLID MATERIAL” called biochar or agri-char, better known as charcoal. Crop production increased if you dig in charcoal: Leave a pencil a few years outside in the rain, you will see the wood evaporates while the carbon core is left over... A 1000 years. Unlike wood charcoal and peat does not react with air and remains a 1000 years in the soil if you dig it in. This technology allows to have 30 to 65% less CO2 gases "in the atmosphere“. Convert together with 3-FORCE the "slash and burn technique” is a quick, easy good for the environment and improves the living standards of farmers in the tropics considerably.

Production increases if charcoal is digged in
