Help Us Win a Land Rover Defender for Rugged Terrain!

We're thrilled to announce that One Tree Planted is a finalist in the Environmental Category of the Land Rover Defender Above & Beyond Service Awards! Reforestation takes all kinds of resources, including vehicles that can maneuver through tough terrain and safely transport our team to remote planting sites. This win would save us the cost of purchasing a vehicle, while also helping us get more trees in the ground.

Help us win by voting for One Tree Planted in the Environmental category. Voting is open from August 11th-23rd and you can vote once a day, so vote every day if you can!

From Land Rover:
"Defender vehicles have been used for various humanitarian causes around the world for decades and with its recent return to the U.S., we wanted to expand on that legacy with ‘The Defender Above & Beyond Service Awards’ and celebrate organizations that know the value of community and drive to do great things with them. Over this past year, we have been inspired by the endless acts of service from people who embody the Above and Beyond spirit of Land Rover, and we’re excited to reward these individuals with new customized Defender vehicles so they can continue to help those around them."
— Joe Eberhardt, President& CEO, Jaguar Land Rover North America

Plant Trees Where They're Needed Most

As the need for reforestation is global and ever-changing, we feature where trees are most needed now. Today, we're raising funds to create habitat for monarch butterflies in Mexico. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Create breeding habitat for monarch butterflies
  • Work with small-holder farmers for local community impact
  • Reduce soil erosion & prevent landslides
  • This project focuses on both farmland conversion and forest restoration to improve biodiversity habitats in an essential migration corridor for numerous species, most notably the Monarch butterfly. By densely planting native species with the cooperation of local landowners and indigenous communities, we can make sure that Senguio and Ocampo's natural beauty is restored for future generations of people and wildlife.. Thank you so much for your support of healthy forests! 🌲
  • Communities and landowners will be taught sustainable forestry practices such as proper planting techniques, sustainable harvesting, the importance of recycling and waste management, and land and plant protection. This will create jobs and opportunities for those most impacted by the project.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates about this project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • To maximize the impact of your donation, our partner will plant native species, including Oyamel pine, smooth-bark Mexican pine, Chihuahua pine, and Cupressus lindleyi.
