List of the 25 Tree Projects We Supports
Usambara Biodiversity Conservation, Tanzania
Preserving Biodiversity in the Eastern Arc Mountains rain forest is the primary goal of this project. Additionally, key issues to be addressed are reversing the serious deforestation around Forest Nature Reserve, a critical need for woods and construction materials, the need for environmental conservation education, and extreme poverty alleviation through agroforestry.
Ketrawe Agroforestry, Bolivia
Since year 2000, the Bolivian AMAZON RAINFOREST has lost an area greater than Denmark to agriculture & cattle fields. It is tough to stop that, but we are successfully winning ground by continuously planting trees between fields that work as thick wind shields that have the capacity to stop erosion, bring back the forest and displaced wild life, restore humidity conditions and CO2 sequestration.
Agroforesterie et Boisement, France
The project converts agricultural fields into agroforestry systems (combining agriculture with forestry on the same land), and reforests former agricultural fields not cultivated anymore. Our agroforestry + reforestation activities help to transform the current unsustainable agricultural practices, with many benefits for nature + local farmers: less use of pesticides + fertilizers, less erosion, more biodiversity, CO2 offset, more income / health
Community Tree Planting, United Kingdom
This programme enables UK communities to plant native trees in their local public spaces. At just 13%, the UK currently has one of the lowest rates of tree cover in Europe. Working across the UK, this project will increase tree cover, absorb carbon from the atmosphere, and provide vital habitat for local wildlife. It will also provide a vital community link - therefore encouraging both biodiversity and local communities to flourish once more.
Lots of recent research indicates clearly that we need to conserve our vulnerable tropical forests if we are to have any hope of stopping complete and irreversible Climate Breakdown. Since 2007, this unique project has been working closely with ordinary Kenyan subsistence farmers to find ways to help them grow new food and timber crops that improve bio-diversity and reduce the stress on their threatened and critically important tropical forest.
Sierra Lujar, Spain
This an eco-social regeneration project of Semillistas Association, to recover the Mediterranean diversity and restore a deeply degraded soil. Using sowing instead of planting, applying three eco-technologies: priming, pelleting and mycorrhizae. The project also aims for an integrated regeneration of the local community, developing resilience, physical and mental health care of volunteers and the local population, especially the most vulnerable.
Eden Projects, Madagascar
In response to the large-scale loss of mangroves and upland forests in Madagascar, Eden Reforestation Projects initiated the Madagascar Reforestation Project. The program began in 2007 and since its inception, Eden has successfully planted over 407 million mangrove and dry deciduous trees in northwest Madagascar.
Eden Projects, Nepal
Eden began its Nepal Reforestation Project in 2015 to help improve local livelihoods and restore forests in areas of critical importance. Eden has been working in 3 distinct regions across the country, including a partnership with Chitwan National Park, a World Heritage Site in Nepal. By partnering with the National Park system, Eden Projects is helping to protect and create a reforested buffer zone that is vital to protect animal habitat.
Camino Verde, Peru
Deep in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon the Camino Verde project is dedicated to protecting and understanding biodiversity in the Peruvian Amazon, protecting indigenous rights, autonomy, and wisdom, and spreading sustainable ways of life and encouraging fair, sustainable development. Our work lies at the intersection of people and forests. Our mission is to plant trees and encourage others to do the same.
Mount Kenya Trust, Kenya
The Mount Kenya Trust plants trees around Africa's 2nd. highest mountain - Mount Kenya, surrounded by a vast, protected series of indigenous forests. We have planted almost 2.000.000 trees over 20 years and are seeking now support for a new project to plant around 100.000 trees at Upper Imenti Forest which has been deforested and degraded over many years. The area represents an ancient and important wet-season elephant habitat and refuge.
One Tree Matters, Australia
We are building forests in the Wet Tropics of North Queensland, Australia. In particular we are connecting habitat and creating corridors for the endangered Southern Cassowary and Mahogany Glider. With your help we can save these species. Brettacorp Inc. has also built the first 4 Miyawaki Forests in Australia and we look forward to building many more with your support. Since 2015 we have planted over 30 000 native trees across 25 acres.
Bringing back the green of the Atlantic Forest! The Atlantic Forest in southeastern Brazil is one of the most endangered and biodiverse biomes in the world. Through environmental education programs, public policies, native tree seedling production and ecological restoration, Copaíba brings back the Atlantic forest!
VCS Afforestation Program, Uganda
The International Small Group + Tree Planting Program (TIST) is a community initiative dedicated to empowering small groups of 25,000 subsistence farmers to combat the devastating effects of deforestation, poverty and drought through a combination of sustainable development with carbon sequestration. Sales of VCS/CCB carbon credits generate participant income while TIST today also addresses agriculture, HIV/AIDS, nutrition + fuel wood challenges
Shoshone National Forest - Wyoming, USA
The Shoshone National Forest contains some of the most rugged, remote and scenic areas in the USA. The Forest is an integral portion of the 10 mill. acre Greater Yellowstone Area (state of Wyoming). The project will support the recovery from wildfires and spruce budworm infestation (which caused tree mortality of 60-80% in some areas), and will help re-establish the seed source for future regeneration and improve resilience to future infestations
A community-based reforestation initiative that regroups small-scale farming families to develop ecosystem services for the voluntary carbon market. Participants reforest and maintain under-utilized portions of their land in exchange for payments for ecosystem services.
Daintree Life Revegetation, Australia
Daintree Life is planting trees in previously cleared areas in the Daintree Rainforest, in tropical north Queensland, Australia - the oldest rainforest on earth. Our aim is to plant 500,000 trees by 2030, to increase habitat and food resource for our iconic wildlife, such as Southern Cassowaries, Bennetts Tree-kangaroos, and a myriad of wildlife, replacing cleared weedy areas with rainforest. Since November 2018 we have planted over 7500 trees.
Sacred Seeds, Colombia
This project, situated on a 16 hectare parcel of land inside a natural reserve, involves the planting of a botanical garden in the Orinoco River basin to conserve its traditional medicinal trees and plants. The project is being done together with the Missouri Botanical Gardens in the USA.
Amazonia Rioterra, Brazil
The year 2020 set a new record for deforestation in the Amazon basin. The Rondonia state is the main target for illegal Amazon logging. CES Rioterra is dedicated to the reforestation of these areas and developed this project together with Tree-Nation. Last planting season we planted over 40,000 trees and continue planting now more than 30,000 trees, thus contributing to combating climate change, biodiversity loss and other environmental damages.
Dassa, Burkina Faso
Le projet « Planter pour la Planète » a été lancé par Madame Wangari Maathaï. Au Burkina, nous plantons dans la province du Sanguié en suivant les conseils de l’agroforesterie afin de faire reculer le désert.
Trees for Tigers, India
The Tiger project is being implemented on the fringes of Similipal National Park at Jamukeshwar village range (District Mayurbhanj, State of Odisha). Similipal National Park is home to the only known habitat of the elusive melanistic, or black, tigers. Similipal is one of India’s oldest tiger reserves. Declared in 1973 under Project Tiger, it contains 2,750 sq km of forest and is prime habitat for tigers, prey species and elephants.
Initiative supported by farmers who want to restore landscape, biodiversity and protect the soil against erosion through regenerative farming and reforestation whiting the natural zone in their farms. Located in the deep south east of the Iberian Peninsula (North Granada, Inland Almería and Murcia.)
Trees for Tribals, India
The Adivasi Bhatra tribe relies on forests for food security and livelihood through the collection of forest produces. The project involves the planting of 100,000 highly valued native trees in various villages, with the goal to help restore forests, enhance ecosystem services and rural economy.
Sowing Water, Brazil
Forest suppression and fragmentation cause the loss of many ecosystem services, such as water supply. To reverse these processes, IPÊ develops the “Sowing Water” project in eight municipalities in the Cantareira Supply System. The objectives are: to influence rural producers to adopt sustainable land use practices and to recompose the forest that has been suppressed; involve, through environmental education, the community in project actions.
Bosques Yungas, Argentina
Seamos Bosques on Yungas eco region, also known as “Yungas Project”, has as it's main goal the enrichment of the local ecosystem, which has been depredated by human activity. The aim is to stop and reverse this degradation through the planting of native species, attracting native biodiversity to the region.
Trees for Water, India
Situated in Raigad, a Maharashtra district prone to seasonal water scarcity although it’s situated among various water bodies. Maharashtra state has suffered from severe droughts in recent years, limiting the access of potable water to one of the most marginalized communities of India, the Katkaris. Trees can improve groundwater resources turning the soil more permeable, permitting the storage of rainwater, and maintain groundwater availability.
ArBolivia Project, Bolivia
ArBolivia is a true partnership between smallholder farmers and social investors that provides a truly sustainable solution to deforestation in the Bolivian Amazon. The project enables poor farmers to better manage their land whilst helping them to grow, harvest and sell native hardwood trees. Not only does this result in reforestation, but it means the rainforest is protected from further encroachment.
