International tree planting ensures 1tree.com can grow and protect forest ecosystems across the globe.
1tree.com supports community-centred forest restoration projects creating long-term sustainable development in project localities.
Using an ‘Employ to Plant’ methodology our international tree planting partners create lasting environmental, social and economic benefits which help ensure the future success of these projects and the people who depend on them. Tree planting bridges the ecological world of plants and the social world of humans. Forest ecosystems are therefore social-ecological systems where human wellbeing and the natural environment are inextricably interlinked.
Your continued support creates the conditions for both short-term success and crucially long-term safeguarding of these precious environments. Through international tree planting, we create resilient and sustainable forests that coevolve with the local people who live in their vicinity. We champion a deep understanding of native species and the specific biodiversity needs of that local environment. Additionally, we are passionate about environmental justice, the utilisation of local and indigenous knowledge.
