    Regions

    Every region we plant in is as unique as the wildlife and people who call it home, but what holds true no matter where you go is that reforestation changes lives for the better. From the Quenya Reymi festival high in the Andes mountains to community forests across England's countryside and koala habitats in Australia, we take daily inspiration from the grit, fortitude, and creativity of our reforestation partners and the communities they work with. 

    As we head into 2024, we will continue to be a leader in reforestation efforts. We're excited to continue growing our strategic global partnerships, driving a new phase of growth in the reforestation space.

    But first, let's dig in and celebrate all that we accomplished together in 2023!

    A Year in Review

    Every year, we are proud to share what we have accomplished, together. And while tree planting numbers are the simplest way to communicate the scale of reforestation impact, our work is informed by the understanding that reforestation is about more than planting trees. And we take that very seriously.

    Every tree we plant represents hope for a greener future. In addition to creating important environmental benefits, our projects provide jobs, training, nutritious food sources and other life-changing resources to the communities that need them the most. 

    In 2023, we worked with 315 planting partners through 394 projects in 72 countries. Through these projects, 242,458 farming families were supported, 5,336 women were involved, and 6,939 jobs were created.

    And that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the essential community benefits that reforestation can provide. In all our projects, tree species are carefully selected to ensure a balanced, long-lasting impact on nature and communities.

    Kula Project stands as a distinguished and long-lasting partner in our mission to combat poverty through community empowerment and entrepreneurship training. The organization focuses on bolstering household businesses and livelihoods, working collaboratively with coffee communities in Rwanda.

    Our collaboration with the Kula Project, initiated in 2019, marks one of our foundational partnerships in Rwanda. Over the years, we have jointly planted more than 600,000 trees and supported Kula Project's Fellowship programs. Notably, we supported their 15th-month fellowship program, benefitting more than 200 coffee-farming families each year. This program equips participants with essential inputs and training, thereby enhancing their coffee farms and overall harvests, leading to increased income.

    One Tree Planted collaborates significantly with Global Forest Generation (GFG) in their impactful partnership, particularly on the Accion Andina project, led alongside partners ECOAN. Acción Andina is a growing network of grassroots organizations and local communities that are focused on restoring the high Andes, contributing to local livelihoods and enhancing water security across South America. The project provides community benefits by restoring vital natural resources and fostering sustainable management, leading to the creation of local micro-businesses centered around native forest growth. GFG partners with local leaders and indigenous communities, employing a model that involves close collaboration to accelerate forest ecosystem restoration.

    This approach aims to ensure climate resilience, protect threatened ecosystems and biodiversity, enhance water security, and improve livelihoods in the long term through sustained local leadership and the development of restoration economies. Sustained local leadership and the development of local restoration economies are integral to every step of the strategy to comprehensively restore forest ecosystems.

    One of our most noteworthy partners, The United States Forest Service is a multi-faceted agency that cooperates with State and local governments, forest industries and other private landowners to manage and protect 154 national forests and 20 grasslands in 43 states and Puerto Rico. Maintaining and improving the health, diversity, andproductivity of forests across America to meet current and future generation needs is at the heart of what the USFS does, making it no surprise that they’re one of One Tree Planted’s official reforestation partners, entrusted to help restore and create resilient forest ecosystems on public lands from coast to coast in National Parks across the US.

    One Tree Planted is proud to be recognized as an official reforestation partner with the United States Forest Service, a partnership committed to planting trees in all 9 regions of National Forests. Through our reforestation efforts, National Forests can continue to thrive and support biodiversity, wildfire recovery, and watershed restoration now and in the future.

    RoundGlass Foundation is one of our treasured partners. RoundGlass Foundation’s goal is to accelerate development in under-served communities of Punjab by leveraging the power of philanthropic partnerships. Since their inception in 2020, they have reached more than 1100 villages. With 8 active on-ground initiatives across children and youth development, sports, women, waste management, green cover renewal, community, health, and animal welfare, our projects touch most of the population of a community across all ages.

    One Tree Planted is proud to have collaborated with RoundGlass Foundation. During three years of partnership, we have planted 1.25 million trees in Punjab. The “Plant for Punjab” initiative promotes responsible environmental practices, cares for biodiversity, creates germplasm conservation banks, reduces carbon footprint and offers protection against future ecological degradation. They empower and mobilize citizens by creating partnerships with local governing bodies and eco-clubs to introduce responsible practices and help Punjab restore its green cover.
