Mexico

New

One Dollar. One Tree.

Mexico is a resting place for the migration of Monarch butterflies, one of nature's most important pollinators. Reforestation will protect these critical biodiversity habitats. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Create habitat for monarch butterflies
  • Work with indigenous communities
  • Reduce soil erosion & prevent landslides
  • This project focuses on both farmland conversion and forest restoration to improve biodiversity habitats in an essential migration corridor for numerous species, most notably the Monarch butterfly. By densely planting native species with the cooperation of local landowners and indigenous communities, we can make sure that Senguio and Ocampo's natural beauty is restored for future generations of people and wildlife.
  • Communities and landowners will be taught sustainable forestry practices such as proper planting techniques, sustainable harvesting, the importance of recycling and waste management, and land and plant protection. This will create jobs and opportunities for those most impacted by the project. 
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our Mexico projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • To maximize the impact of your donation, our partner will plant native species, including Oyamel pine, smooth-bark Mexican pine, Chihuahua pine, and Cupressus lindleyi.

WHY PLANT TREES?

Brazil Atlantic Forest Wildlife

CREATING HABITAT

Every year, Monarch butterflies migrate thousands of miles to winter in the forests of Mexico. As pollinators, they provide an invaluable ecological service to forests and farmlands across their range. Creating more forests for Monarchs to winter can protect the environment for years to come.

COMMUNITY RESTORATION

This project will include restoration on public land as well as privately owned land, creating spaces and opportunity accessible to communties and landowners alike. Indigenous communities will be at the center of restoration, taking care of the land and preserving it for the decades that will follow.

PROTECTING SOIL

Planting trees helps keep soil in place, which will slow erosion and preserve the landscape in the face of natural disasters. The risk of landslides, a threat to the area, are greatly reduced when trees take root in the soil. This project will help maintain the shape of the land and the safety of the communities that live there.
