Watersheds

New

One Dollar. One Tree.

From forests to urban areas, watersheds are threaded throughout the landscapes we depend on β€” and they directly impact the quality and quantity of our water resources. Plant trees today to support global watersheds! Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Maintain and regulate water quality and flow
  • Restore habitats for aquatic and terrestrial species
  • Reduce erosion and stabilize neighboring soils
  • Watersheds are areas of land that drain precipitation, such as rain or snow, into a connected water body β€” which might be a river, lake, or ocean. These areas play a critical role as they collect, store, and transport water, shaping the surrounding landscape and influencing the quality of water resources downstream.
  • Our reforestation projects around the world have demonstrated the positive impact of strategically planting trees within watersheds. These efforts have led to improved water quality, reduced erosion, restored habitats, and enhanced ecosystem health. By planting trees to support watersheds, you're contributing directly to the preservation and restoration of areas that are vital to wildlife and communities alike. Together, we can help safeguard water resources and foster healthier, more sustainable watersheds for generations to come.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you reports on our watershed restoration projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • To maximize the impact of your donation, our partners will plant native species to ensure a lasting impact across projects.Β

Why Plant for Watersheds?

Erosion Control

Erosion Control

Trees have robust root systems that help stabilize soil, preventing erosion. Since erosion can lead to sedimentation that negatively impacts water quality, this is critical for preserving the health of watersheds.

Water Quality Improvement

Water Quality Improvement

Tree roots act as natural filters, trapping pollutants and preventing them from entering waterways. They help purify water, making it healthier for aquatic life and human consumption.

Support Biodiversity

Support Biodiversity

By planting trees within watersheds, we aim not only to restore tree cover but also to revive entire ecosystems. Every tree planted contributes to the reestablishment of habitats, fostering a healthier, more balanced watershed environment that allows biodiversity to thrive.
