What we do

TreeKeepers was born when we saw indiscriminate removal of mature trees in our suburbs and knew it was very important to try and stem the tide and to ensure new trees were planted to replace them. We also observed that trees are not given sufficient good maintenance to ensure their ongoing good health, so we aim to work with the City of Cape Town and the general public to educate and inspire people to manage and preserve our urban forests. 

Why it matters to all of us

Trees have been providing shelter, shade, and sustenance for humankind for hundreds of thousands of years. They produce life-giving oxygen and clear the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and pollution.
