BBC EARTH'S ECO SEASON IN ASSOCIATION WITH ONE TREE PLANTED
100K TREES FOR GLOBAL ACTION
IT TAKES A PLANET TO SAVE A PLANET.
We are pleased to support BBC Earth’s Eco Season by planting 100,000 trees across 8 countries, in Asia, Europe, and Africa. BBC Earth is a factual channel available in these regions which celebrates nature, science, space and the human race, bringing you closer to the sheer wonder of this amazing planet we call home. Their Eco Season consists of a special collection of films in a series that showcases Earth’s outstanding beauty, and highlights the fragile nature of its existence. The landmark programming will take you on a journey of discovery and deeper understanding of the world we live in and how we can all protect it.

TREES IN ASIA + THE PACIFIC
One Tree Planted's projects across Asia and the Pacific are helping rebuild the habitat of critically endangered species and are creating jobs and providing sustainable, long-term income for communities so people and forests can live together in harmony.
Our partners in the Philippines are working hard to restore forest ecosystems with local people. Efforts are centred on habitat restoration for endangered species, safeguarding community watersheds and sustainable development through agroforestry and tree planting.
By planting trees in Vietnam, you're helping create jobs for villagers through site clearance, planting, tending, and monitoring; providing long-term income through collecting fruits of Son Tra trees; and fostering numerous environmental benefits ranging from watershed protection, to erosion control to carbon storage.
While the Knuckles Mountain Range constitutes only 0.03% of the island's total area it is home to a significantly higher proportion of the country's biodiversity. More than 34% of Sri Lanka's trees, shrubs, and herbs are endemic, meaning they are only found in these forests. The objective of this project is to reforest 25 hectares of land within Knuckles Conservation Forest as a community forest and to control the bush fires in the area.
This tree-planting action is designed to contribute to an ongoing project by Earthworm Foundation (EF) within our Rurality programme. The proposed action will take place within an ongoing project that has been in implementation since June 2016. The objective of this tree-planting action is to support farmers transition to mixed-rubber agroforestry systems.
Trees in EuropE
Our European projects seek to re-establish woodland, improve water and soil quality, and create habitat for wildlife in areas that were historically forested.
This tree planting project will restore native woodlands to an area where deforestation occurred centuries ago. The restored woodland will provide a valuable habitat for plants, birds and animals. A much greater diversity of species is supported in native woodland so the creation of this forest will have significant biodiversity benefits for a range of plants, animals, invertebrates and birds.
The new forests will absorb carbon, protect biodiversity, preserve groundwater, and fix nitrogen to reduce wetland eutrophication (when a body of water becomes overly enriched with minerals and nutrients, causing an algae bloom + suffocating aquatic life).
A mixed species forest will provide enriched biodiversity and carbon sequestration capacity for most species' groups, including considerable birch at the edges, pine in the poorest areas, spruce on the better sites and black cottonwood along streams.
TREES IN south africa
We're working with local nurseries and community groups in Cape Town and surrounding townships while supporting a long term goal of reforesting communities.
CAPE TOWN The planted trees will go on to support Western Cape Town and the barrier that is needed in local communities to protect lands from wind breaks. In addition, this project will provide ecological and community benefits like increasing biodiversity habitat, promotion of green spaces, provide jobs to local communities, and sequester carbon.
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
At One Tree Planted we like to refer to the six pillars as just some of the reasons why trees are so vital...
