Written by Brett Mathews

NEW HAMPSHIRE – Global outdoor apparel brand Timberland has released a new documentary which chronicles its work on a five-year project to reforest Haiti in partnership with the Smallholder Farmers Alliance (SFA), an NGO farmer cooperative dedicated to feeding and reforesting the country. Haiti is one of the most severely deforested countries in the world, with just 1.5 per cent tree cover remaining. In 2010, Timberland committed to plant five million trees in five years in Haiti, aimed at helping to reverse the country's decline in tree populations. The film documents the story of Timberland‟s journey and is available at KombitFilm.com.
