these are all good questions. I definitely need to reconsider any donation until questions are answered.

Are they planting a wide variety of seedlings to match the trees native to the area? Trees are better than no trees, but too many of one variety can make them susceptible to pests or disease. Can you tell us more about what they are planting?

I wish a nature charity would consider replanting some of the thousands of mature trees that are wiped out in each natural disater like tornados, hurricanes and fires here in the US.

Thank you for your reply - I know a family in Brazil who owns property of thousands of hectares for planting only coffee and need an aircraft to oversee and control it. In case you are interested in helping to reforest some of their property, please let me know - the husband has just passed away in an accident...

only when you explain in detail how you will use the money, acknowledge payment or issue receipts for it and open your books showing your yearly report of spending will I consider...

The nonprofit Conservancy has traveled far beyond its humble beginnings, when it relied on small donors and acquired a few small plots at a time. Its governing board and advisory council now include executives and directors from one or more oil companies, chemical producers, auto manufacturers, mining concerns, logging operations and coal-burning electric utilities.

Shame on the Nature Conservancy for taking advantage of that little girl. Anyone who gives money to this multi billion $$ corporation is being played for a fool. The Conservancy has logged forests, engineered a $64 million deal paving the way for opulent houses on fragile grasslands and drilled for natural gas under the last breeding ground of an endangered bird species. They actually clearcut an Adirondack forest they owned.

Thanks but no thanks for the propaganda, Trevor. The Nature Conservancy is all about making money and financing the Democratic Party - NOT conserving nature. The President and CEO of the Conservancy is Mark Tercek, the former managing director at Goldman Sachs. That should tell you something about the goals of the organization.

Karl Moore - Thank you for sharing the link and educating me on the changes The Nature Conservancy has undergone. It's eye-opening. The article has prompted me to investigate the Canadian wing of the Conservancy. I'm hoping they haven't gone down the same road as their U.S. counterpart.

Thanks for your reply, Paul. And thanks for taking the time to open the link I posted. The Nature Conservancy is definitely the 'Wrong Kind Of Green'! "The road to hell is paved with corporate profits and compromised NGOs" - http://wrongkindofgreen.org/

Will you count the blight resistant American Chestnut trees I planted at my home in VA? (2) or the trees my cub scouts planted?
