Argentina

New

One Dollar. One Tree.

Reforestation in Argentina will regenerate diverse, native forests. From the Andes mountain range to the lowland sub-tropical ecosystems, planting in Argentina will support some of the world's most distinct environments. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Recover areas affected by large-scale wildfires
  • Protect animal habitats and encourage biodiversity
  • Sequester carbon in the biomass of the forests through climate stability
  • Planting trees in Argentina will re-establish native forests in the area by using an approach called biotic intervention; this means reinstating desirable plant species belonging to the representative community of the original ecosystem. The objective is to return to the Patagonian forest its structure, composition, diversity of species and original functioning, taking the pre-existing ecosystem as a model. Considering how large Argentina is, each part of the country has a different ecosystem, whether it's the highland forests of the Andes and Patagonia, or the subtropical regions near the Uruguay river. Restoration activities are aimed at accelerating the course of recovery of the pre-existing ecosystem. 🌲
  • Our Argentina project will employ locals at nurseries in the area to generate income for their community and planting knowledge for generations to come. Collaboration with locals is very important since they know the area, the climate, the seasons, and the animals.
    Reforestation will improve the quality of life for the local population living in the harsh mountainous conditions. After decades of cattle raising in the area, one of the native trees thrives without allowing other species to settle. With this project, we will regenerate the forest as it was before human intervention.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our Argentina project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • We always plant a mix of diverse, native species from local nurseries. This project is working to replenish local forests, so the native species grown in the nurseries include Tabaquillo (Polulepis australis), Coihue (Nothofagus dombeyi), Ciprés de la cordillera (Austrocedrus chilensis), Scutia buxifolia (Coronillo or Reissek), Eugenia cisplatensis (Red Guava), Aspidosperma quebracho-blanco (White Quebracho).

About Argentina

Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world, covers the southernmost point of South America, and is home to both the highest and lowest points in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The country is known for its diverse wildlife, like seals and penguins on the Patagonian coast, while other areas are home to flamingos, jaguars, and capybaras. 

Argentina is home to 18 different eco-regions including plains, deserts, tropics, arctics, and the tallest mountains in the Americas. It has thousands of miles of coastline, but is most known for Mesopotamia- a rainforest region in the north,  Gran Chaco- a dry region with the world's tallest volcano, and Pampas- flat plains that are home to the Parana river.

Why Plant Trees in Argentina?

Recover from Wildfires

The native Polylepis forests act as a barrier to fires by generating humid environments and having bark with insulating and fire-retardant. This makes them more fire resistant and resilient in their post-fire recovery.

Encourage Biodiversity

The restoration of the Polylepis forests will complete a vast ecosystem with the return of species of great biological importance, like the Puma, the Fox of Achala, and the Condor.

Promote Climate Stability

During the process of reforestation, there is a large uptake of carbon from the atmosphere that is fixed in the biomass of the forests and in the soil. This plays a fundamental role in the global carbon cycle and in mitigating climate change.
