Plant Trees for Biodiversity

New

One Dollar. One Tree.

Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth in all forms and interactions, thrives in healthy habitats where nature can recover after ecological disturbance. Reforestation is essential for this process. Learn more

Planting trees for biodiversity will contribute to:

  • Protecting endangered species by increasing forest cover
  • Restoring holistic ecosystems for a range of flora & fauna
  • Improving soil stability by restoring degraded areas
  • We are facing a climate crisis and the rapid loss of Earth's remaining wild places. As we lose habitats, we also lose biodiversity. This is where trees come in! Reforestation helps to restore at-risk ecosystems and habitats, ultimately increasing food supply, health, and overall well-being. Your donation will help to restore forest cover in Sri Lanka, Mexico, and Kenya. Reforesting these areas will aid in the protection of endangered species, restoration of holistic ecosystems, and improvement of soil stability.
  • With the presence of a regenerating forest, we will create a safe haven for biodiversity. This brings a wide array of habitats, leading to a significant increase in species numbers. The restoration of degraded areas will also result in better soil stability, ultimately improving forest cover as a whole!
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our biodiversity projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • In order to maximize biodiversity across our multiple projects, we will plant an array of tree species such as Terminalia arjuna, Cassis fistula, Careya arborea, Ficus racemosa, Palo de tinto (Haematoxylum campechianum), Guacimo (Guazuma ulmifolia), Palo de rosa (Tabebuia rosea), Juniperus procera, Croton megalocarpus, Prunus africana

Why Plant Trees for Biodiversity?

Protect Endangered Species

Protect Endangered Species

Reforestation creates a safe haven for biodiversity, allowing for a wide array of habitatsand an increase in animals populations.

Restore Holistic Ecosystems

Restore Holistic Ecosystems

Increasing forest cover contributes to the restoration of holistic ecosystems, which in turn promotes a range of flora and fauna to grow.

Improve Soil Stability

Improve Soil Stability

Planting trees helps to rebuild the soil with nutrients, soaks up excess water, and reduces erosion thanks to strong root structures.

Biodiversity?

Restoring the Knuckles Mountain Range

Restoring the Knuckles Mountain Range

Sri Lanka

The Knuckles Mountain Range lies in central Sri Lanka, taking its name from a series of horizontal folds and peaks which resemble the knuckles of clenched fist. In addition to its beautiful aesthetic value, the range is of great scientific interest because of its diverse conditions particularly those concealing a variety of flora and fauna. Although the range constitutes approximately 0.03% of the island's total area, it is home to a significantly higher proportion of the country's biodiversity. More than 34 percent of Sri Lanka's native trees, shrubs, and herbs are only found in these forests.

Restoring the Land of the Jaguar

Mexico

Laguna de Términos, the largest lagoon in the Gulf of Mexico, is a conservation area in Palizada sourcing incredible biodiversity. Through its connection of several rivers and lagoons, Laguna de Términos is by far the most important river basin in the country. Roughly 50% of the lagoon's water volume is renewed within a nine day cycle simply by the ocean tides alone!

Protecting Leopard & Hyena Populations

Protecting Leopard & Hyena Populations

Kenya

Kenya is home to an abundance of biodiverse assets which includes 7000 plants, 25 000 invertebrates, over 1000 birds, more than 300 mammals, and about 2000 species of fungi and bacteria. Back in the 1960s, 10% of Kenya’s land was covered in lush forest that supported biodiverse habitats such as those of the African leopard and spotted hyena. Unfortunately, this overall area dropped to a of low 6% by the early 2000s due to high rates of deforestation.
