The trees are planted here:

Numfoor Island, Indonesia

Millions of mangroves and tropical forests will be planted to promote food security and support families on Numfoor Island, one of the most disadvantaged areas of Indonesia where self-sufficient farmers and fishermen make up around 75 percent of the population. West Papua, Indonesia, located in the Coral Triangle, is an area recognized as the global center of marine biodiversity and a global priority for conservation because of the wide range of species it supports, including at least 500 species of reef-building corals.

Amaltaari, Nepal

Millions of mangroves will be planted at the Amaltaari plantation site in Nawalparasi, home to endangered species, including leopards and the elusive Bengal tiger. Tree plantations are expected to enable thousands of local people, mainly farmers, to improve their lives. The project will encourage the local population to make a positive contribution to protecting the biodiversity of the Asian country that houses more than 700 species of wildlife that enrich the natural elements of the country.
