I'll bet that if the World Bank offered to pay $0.10 for each tree planted and $10.00 for each tree grown to maturity, it would get far more value for its money than it does on most other projects. Benefits to World Bank would be shade, wood supply, water and soil conservation, CO2 capture, etc. Benefits to Thimmakka would be $80,000 for a life's work; not much but not bad either.
