Khair Tree

Khair Tree, which was formerly known as Acacia catechu, is a moderate-sized deciduous tree native to Asia. It is highly valued for the production of tannin, commonly referred to as “cutch,” which is extracted from its heartwood. Additionally, its branches are extensively lopped for fodder, making it a valuable resource for livestock. This abundantly found tree in India serves multiple purposes and is considered a valuable companion to farmers.

Moreover, Senegalia catechu or Khair Tree is an excellent fodder tree for goats and cattle, providing them with essential nourishment. Furthermore, its remarkable height, numerous branches, and dense leaves make it an exceptional tree for carbon fixing. The large canopy of this tree offers ample shade, effectively cooling the ground beneath and reducing evaporation. It serves as a beneficial tree that performs various crucial functions for the environment and surrounding ecosystem.

Impact in Numbers 

Carbon Fixed  600 Kgs.

CO2 reduction from the atmosphere by 2200 Kgs.

Increase in farmer income/cost savings in fodder, and fuelwood by 2500 INR per year after maturity.

Tree Dimensions on Maturity

Maximum height of the tree (m) 15
Tree canopy spread (m) 10
Tree trunk diameter (inches) 10


Value to the farmer

The Khair tree provides seeds as a good source of protein. One can eat them as well. The leaves are used as fodder. Big trees are used as timber as well. It provides an additional source of income to the farmers by selling the seeds and bark etc. Also, reduced the cost of fodder.

Plant a Khair Tree: About the Project 

Farmers will receive Khair tree saplings and essential technical knowledge to cultivate them as part of the project. Additionally, they will receive continuous support for a period of three years, emphasizing the long-term nature of the initiative. Moreover, farmers will have the opportunity to join a group where they will be encouraged to grow the saplings, with the benefits thoroughly explained to them. This collective effort aims to improve their economic status by incorporating these trees into their agricultural practices.


The Khair trees undergo geotagging, ensuring accurate location tracking. Furthermore, the area boundary is marked using GPS technology. Moreover, farmer details are recorded along with corresponding images. All the data, including information on carbon fixation, is captured and directly stored through mobile apps in the field. In addition, experts have developed equations in the app and reports to calculate yearly carbon fixation for different species. It is worth noting that total transparency is maintained throughout the process, encompassing data acquisition, storage, and analysis.

Impact assessment

The project measures the impact it creates for wildlife and farmers. Moreover, all data is regularly captured at intervals to assess the progress. Furthermore, the captured data is analyzed by comparing it with the previous data collected on the same parameters a few months ago. Additionally, the change observed is measured against the planned results to evaluate the project’s effectiveness.


The project reports are prepared and sent to the contributors. The report covers the following

1) Trees status as of the last visit made

2) Any mortality in the trees planted

3) Carbon fixed in MT from the start of the project

4) Economic impact on the farmers.

5) Ecological impact created.
