The impact

By helping us plant 1,000 trees, you will make a lasting impact for the environment, local communities, biodiversity, and the wellbeing of the planet! Trees help clean the water we drink, filter the air we breathe, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. A single mature tree can absorb up to 22 pounds of carbon per year. That's 22.000 pounds of carbon per year once the trees from this campaign mature! And as you know by know, harmful carbon in the atmosphere is a huge driving force of climate change. 

We cannot wait to celebrate ValenPINE's Day with you! And if you'd like to ditch the boring unsustainable gifts this year, plant a tree for Valentine's Day! The everlasting gift of a tree will surely make your loved ones PINE for your affection (we tried to hold back on the pun, we really did 😉🌲).

Gift Trees

Gift a tree in someone's name as a heartfelt and everlasting way to show your appreciation. These trees will support AFR100, the African Forest Landscape Initiative! Choose an image below, write your message, choose a delivery date and gift a tree. Learn more

By gifting a tree, you will help to:

  • Provide jobs to minimize poverty in local communities
  • Improve climate change resilience & mitigation
  • Restore forest cover to improve food security
  • Give the gift of trees! Trees are an environmentally-friendly option that helps to create a healthier planet. These trees will be planted to support AFR100 with TerraFund. As Africa is on a mission to reverse these trends and restore 100 million hectares of land by 2030, this country-led effort will restore 100 million hectares of land by 2030. This restoration work aims to enhance food security, increase climate change resilience and mitigation and combat rural poverty. This work will revolve around 32 participating countries in Africa, along with local communities, national governments, public and private sector partners, and international development programs.
  • Planting trees in Africa reaps multiple benefits! Notably, reforestation here will help to add nutrients to the soil and control erosion, minimize poverty within local communities through the creation of jobs, and improve food security by feeding impoverished families through the planting of fruit trees. Ultimately, added forest cover in this region will diminish pressure on remaining forests, allowing biodiversity to flourish and ultimately helping with the global climate crisis.
  • Both you and the giftee will receive a personalized tree certificate (see gallery) with the recipient's name to thank you for your donation. The giftee will get a custom e-card created by you on your date of choice. We will also send you updates about this project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • We will plant an array of indigenous tree species throughout Africa, such as Senegalia polyacantha, Faidherbia albida, Albizia adianthifolia, Persea americana, Calliandra calothyrsus, Macadamia spp., shea, and mahogany. Fruit trees will also be planted, which include mango, orange, tangerine, avocado, apple, guava, and Brazil nut.
