Forest Fire Recovery

One Dollar. One Tree.

Join us in restoring our forests, one tree at a time. Reforestation is one of the best ways to restore soils and landscapes that have been degraded by high-intensity forest fires. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Reforest lands damaged by record-setting fires
  • Support habitat for iconic biodiversity
  • Together, create a positive impact for generations to come
  • Around the world, we’re planting trees in areas that have been severely affected by forest fires and aren't able to recover a healthy ecosystem on their own. Reforestation starts once professional assessments have been made to determine where human intervention would be the most ecologically beneficial. Help restore these vital ecosystems by planting a tree. 🌿
  • Every year, forest fires are increasing in size and severity, damaging vital ecosystems and creating a need for millions of trees. With so much fire damage, reforestation is essential to catalyze the environmental recovery process. The trees are carefully planted to prevent invasive species from colonizing burn scars and restore quality habitat for native biodiversity. Let's get to work! 🌲
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on the specific reforestation project your donation is benefiting from so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • To maximize the impact of your donation, our partners on the ground will determine the most appropriate species of tree and shrubs. We only plant native tree species that will restore the local ecosystem, re-establish wildlife habitat, and reduce the likelihood of future fires.

We Love Trees

Trees do so much for us! They sequester carbon, filter and absorb air pollutants, release oxygen for us to breathe, provide wildlife habitat, hold the soil together, grow food and medicine, protect us from UV rays, slow the flow of stormwater, and much more.

But forest fires have increased in frequency, severity, and size in many regions including California, British Columbia, the Amazon Rainforest, and Indonesia among others, harming biodiversity, water quality, and the climate. The causes are often wide-ranging, from decades of fire suppression combined with climate change in California, to unregulated slash and burn agriculture in the Amazon and Asia. 

When forest fires are relatively small, nature doesn't require intervention because seeds in the soil and natural regeneration from surrounding healthy trees will restock the ecosystem with new emerging seedlings. But when burn scars are severe, or when the closest healthy trees are too far away to spread seeds via natural processes, planting trees can help to catalyze the natural process so that forests grow again. Our projects are conducted in partnership with local experts, native tree species, and reforestation plans that take unique local ecology into account to ensure a lower risk of future forest fire spread.

Planting trees helps to restore damaged ecosystems, stabilize soil, support the water cycle, and slowly recover the vital ecosystem services that we all depend on. 

Why Plant Trees For Forest Fire Recovery?

Climate

Climate

Trees help to stabilize our climate by absorbing and sequestering carbon via photosynthesis. In fact, one mature tree can sequester up to 22 lbs of carbon per year!

Community

Community

1.6 billion people depend on forests for their livelihood, including tree planters! So planting trees naturally brings people together, heals communities, and stimulates local economies.

Biodiversity

Biodiversity

Trees provide food, shade, and shelter for 1/2 of the world’s terrestrial flora and fauna and 3/4 of all birds. When we cut down their home, they often have nowhere to go.
