Trees release phytoncides, antimicrobial chemicals that help protect them and plants against germs and insects. Japanese scientists have discovered that inhaling phytoncides lowers stress hormones and enhances natural killer cell activity within the immune system.
So you’ll really feel the benefits of taking part in our reforestation initiative to plant indigenous and endemic trees back on Félicité – one of the few places in the world that is getting greener as time goes on.
Thanks to Steve Hill, our island ecologist, Félicité has been undergoing an intensive restoration effort for nearly 10 years. Now you can be a part of the movement and contribute to this fantastic initiative by planting a tree during your stay.
Your name will even feature on a plaque to commemorate the tree – and of course you are welcome to come back year after year to see how your tree is getting on. After all, by contributing towards the health of the land you have enjoyed during your stay, you’ll have also lent a (muddy) hand in gifting a beautiful landscape to future generations.
