"It's a way for us to keep our bond together but at the same time do something useful for the planet," Monaghan told The Reporter. He has already teamed up with FutureForests.com, giving fans the opprotunity to buy a tree in his celebrity forest located in Bangalore, India.Dom is now currently filming more films and has been a guest on Viggo Mortensen's new cd, Pandemoniumfromamerica. Source: dominicmonaghan.org
