Giving Back: One Tree Planted
🌿 About One Tree Planted Organization 🌿
"Our mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time. We also aim to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.
Through our network of on-the-ground reforestation partners, we fund treeplantings in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa. Some trees are planted by volunteers, some are planted by professional treeplanters, it all depends on the scale and goal of the project."
🌿 6 Pillars of Reforestation 🌿
Trees take in harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.
Trees filter water, prevent floods and maintain Earth's water cycles.
Forests provide habitat to many animals, birds, insects, fungi, moss, and plants.
Trees provide jobs and food security to many communities.
Trees and nature reduce stress, aid in recovery, and promote overall wellness.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide & other pollutants, helping to clean air and regulate climate.
🌿 Reforestation Basics 🌿
How does One Tree Planted work?
One Tree Planted works with a network of planting partners and tree nurseries at the local level. Through professionals or volunteers, they help us get your trees planted. Because they're local, they're also very knowledgeable about the native ecology.
Where do they plant?
Their 4 main regions are: North America, South America, Asia, Africa.
Projects/regions are added when we've ensured a solid partnership with a vetted partner. Many projects are ongoing.
When are trees planted?
The time between donations and tree-planting will vary depending on the region chosen and the time of year. Planting usually happens during the local rainy season, when the soil provides optimum conditions for tree survival.
