“A campaign by The Forestias to rescue city trees.  A project where you can make a difference to Thailand.

Each day, as the city grows, social media shows us sad photos of felled trees. But today could be the first day you share a photo of a tree you helped rescue.  Take a photo of the tree you want to save. Then simply post the photo along with the location and #ForestRescue.

#ForestRescue Facebook page – have a look for more information.
