Giving Tuesday: Plant Trees for Biodiversity

One Dollar. One Tree.

Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth in all forms and interactions, thrives in healthy habitats. This Giving Tuesday, you can give back by restoring habitat for iconic wildlife. Learn more

Planting trees on Giving Tuesday will contribute to:

  • Reforest mangrove forests in India, home to the Bengal Tiger
  • Restore degraded habitat in Honduras for the Baird's Tapir
  • Support nesting areas in Minnesota for the Bald Eagle
  • Want to help restore the world's forests for Giving Tuesday? You've come to the right place! Reforestation is one of the best ways to create a healthier environment and provide essential habitats for wildlife. This Giving Tuesday, we're focusing on biodiversity, and any donations made to this page will go directly towards reforestation initiatives focused on supporting wildlife and holistic ecosystem restoration. Donations will be split between Minnesota, Honduras, and India.
  • 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 native tree species for each of the three regions, including species like mahogany, cedar, guanandi, bully tree, pouteria, and sweetgum in Honduras; the red pine, jack pine, white pine, white spruce, tamarack, and bur oak in Minnesota; and native mangrove species in India.

Restoring Mangrove Forests for Tigers

India

Recognized as one of the 17 "megadiverse" countries, around 8% of the world’s flora and fauna is found in India. The coastal Sunderbands Forest is an especially important environment for both land and sea creatures. Planting Mangrove trees helps to restore this unique ecosystem from the bottom of the food chain to the top, creating habitat for marine biodiversity, small predators, and the critically endangered Apex predator — The Bengal Tiger.

Restoring the Home of Baird's Tapir

Honduras

Since 1990, around 45% of Honduras’ natural forests have disappeared. Miraculously, Honduras is still dotted with hotspots of biodiversity, providing homes for macaws, jaguars, and giant iguanas — and of course, Baird’s Tapir! This endangered hooved mammal is the largest Native land mammal in Honduras, and needs restored habitat in the mountainous Nombre de Dios region that it calls home. With your help, we have an opportunity to restore degraded land to make a home for Honduras’ iconic wildlife.

Restoring Habitat for Bald Eagle Nesting 

Minnesota, United States

We’re reforesting the Chippewa National Forest in North-Central Minnesota, which spans more than 600,000 acres, home to some of the state’s last old-growth forests. Notably, the Chippewa National Forest has one of the highest densities of bald eagle nesting sites in the country, with more than 150 pairs nesting in the forest annually. Reforestation can keep the Chippewa National Forest healthy for generations to come, and preserve the culture of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwa, who have a deep connection with the forest.

Why Plant Trees for Biodiversity?

Protect Endangered Species

Protect Endangered Species

Reforestation creates a safe haven for biodiversity, allowing for a wide array of habitats and 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.
