We like to keep things simple, which is why we're committed to honoring our promise that we'll plant one tree for every $1 donated. But the reality is that planting trees around the world isn't always so easy! There are multiple steps involved, variations in costs by region, logistical details to figure out - such as timing, transportation, partners and volunteers - and international exchange rates.
The good news is that you don't have to worry about all of that. When you donate to One Tree Planted, you can rest easy knowing that thanks to you, the world will be just a little greener, cleaner, and healthier.
Here's a general breakdown of costs for every $1 donated.
$.50 -.85 for one tree sapling to be grown at a nursery
$.20 - $.30 per tree to be planted
$.08 - $.20 per tree average with transport costs, material costs
$.10 - $.22 ongoing maintenance of trees
$.12 - $.15 operating costs
$.03 - $.05 credit card processing fees, transaction costs

We're thrilled to announced our partnership with House of Marley - makers of sustainably sourced speakers, headphones, and other audio products - to plant 75K trees by next year.
This partnership will not only make a huge positive impact for the environment, it shows just how powerful businesses can be when their practices are aligned with the core values of respect for nature.
