One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As an environmental charity, we're on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees!

Trees are remarkable plants at the heart of our fight against climate change. They are an affordable and simple yet powerful tool for protecting our environment while creating numerous economic, health, and social impacts.

reforestation UPDATES

WITH KYLEIGH AND NICOLE

Join us as we virtually travel the globe, highlighting some of our amazing tree planting partners and reforestation projects which have started, ended, or made some great progress in the past month! At One Tree Planted, we aim to be as transparent and accountable as possible, providing you with regular updates from our reforestation projects.

REFORESTATION IN NORTH AMERICA

One Tree Planted has planted trees in more than a dozen US states and across three Canadian provinces. Our projects restore forests in the wake of major wildfires like those in Paradise, California; repair damage caused by industry and resource extraction; and even support the endangered Southern Resident Orca of the Pacific Northwest.

California

California’s forests provide innumerable benefits, including recreation, habitat, and beautiful scenery. Healthy forests also play an important role in addressing climate change. Learn more

Your donation helps to:

  • Restore post-wildfire sites
  • Increase biodiversity, water quality, & carbon capture
  • Produce ecological benefits with habitat restoration & erosion control
  • Five years of drought and a large-scale bark beetle infestation have seriously damaged California’s forests. 2017’s record-breaking wildfire season burned more than 1.3 million acres – an area the size of Delaware. 2020's fire season has consumed close to 3 million acres, resulting in hundreds of millions of trees that will need to be restored.
  • Trees play an important role in the vitality of California communities. Your contribution will help plant trees and restore forests throughout California. These foresters work hard to promote improved vegetation planning and resource management, helping to reduce the risk of catastrophic fires and floods in the region.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see above) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on the California project, 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 determine the most appropriate species of tree to plant, depending on the time of year. Species planted include the Sugar Pine, California Redwood (State Tree), Maple, Elderberry, Willow, Birch, Dogwood, Cedar, Giant Sequoia, and Walnut.

Plant Trees in a National Forest

  • The Chippewa National Forest in North-Central Minnesota spans more than 600,000 acres, home to some of the state's last old-growth forests. Notably, the Chippewa National Forest has one of the highest densities of bald eagle nesting sites in the country, with more than 150 pairs nesting in the forest annually 🦅 Unfortunately, wind damage, tree diseases, and insect damage have left the forest vulnerable. Reforestation can keep the Chippewa National Forest healthy for generations to support iconic wildlife, improve soil and water quality, and preserve the culture of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwa, who have a deep connection with the forest. Plant a tree today! 🌱
  • The United States Forest Service (USFS) - an agency of the US Department of Agriculture - manages more than 150 national forests across 43 states. Now, One Tree Planted is one of their official reforestation partners, giving us the opportunity to plant more trees on more public land from coast to coast!

    All of our USFS projects have incredible and diverse impacts on the environment. Planting trees in Minnesota will support critical bald eagle habitats, support the local outdoor recreation industry, and have immense cultural significance for the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwa.

    A personalized tree certificate to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our USFS projects, so you know in which forest your trees were planted, and can track the impact your trees are having on the environment.
  • The United States Forest Service have amazing experts who have chosen trees that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the National Forests. Selected species include the red pine, jack pine, white pine, white spruce, tamarack, bur oak, red oak, and white oak.

Orca Project

  • The Endangered Southern Resident Orca have called the stretch of Pacific Ocean from Northern California to British Columbia home for millennia. Every year, as the Orca's migrate North to South and back again they rely on the West Coast Chinook salmon for food (nearly 80% of their diet). However, salmon stocks are diminishing due to loss of habitat and increasing pollution - ultimately impacting the Orca downstream. Planting trees along rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest restores habitat for the endangered orca. Trees help reduce pollution and improve the health and quantity of salmon for the orca to eat! Learn more about how trees, salmon, and orca are all connected in our blog story.

  • Our amazing partners across the Pacific Northwest have identified critical forested areas that need to be restored in order to have the greatest possible impact on the well-being of the Southern Resident Orca. Planting trees around the rivers and streams that feed into the Orca's habitat reduces water contamination, lowers toxicity, protects salmon spawning grounds, and improves Orca food supply. These projects will bring benefits to other species of wildlife, as well as the communities in the surrounding areas.


  • A personalized tree certificate to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our Orca project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.

  • Our partner has chosen trees and vegetation that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the region, the salmon, and the Southern Resident Orca.

British Columbia

  • British Columbia is characterized by abundant forests, rugged Pacific coastline, mountains, plateaus, pristine lakes and rivers. Notably, BC is home to incredible and iconic biodiversity like the Canada Lynx, Snowy Owl, Moose, and more. Forests cover two-thirds of the province – an area of almost 60 million hectares. However, visitors will have noticed a marked difference in B.C.’s trees in recent years. Insect pests and diseases have decimated enormous areas of forest. These dead trees become fuel for wildfires, and in summer 2017 B.C. experienced its worst wildfire in history, with over 1.2 million hectares burned. You can help recover this essential wildlife habitat when you plant a tree 🌱

  • British Columbia has established itself as a leader in forest management, implementing stringent forest policies, stewardship programs and scientific research. Our reforestation partners are experts in rehabilitating B.C. forests and ensuring they have a sustainable future. Help us plant trees in British Columbia to help reduce the damage from beetle infestations, lessen the impact of wildfires, provide habitat for B.C.’s abundant wildlife like the moose and grizzly bear, and preserve the province’s natural beauty for generations to come.


  • A personalized tree certificate to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our projects in British Columbia, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • B.C.’s rich forest diversity includes more than 40 different species of native trees, with some of Canada’s most interesting and valuable tree species. Coniferous, or softwood, species such as pine, spruce, fir, hemlock and western red cedar are predominant in close to 90 per cent of B.C.’s forests. To maximize the impact of your donation, our partner will determine the most appropriate species of tree to plant, depending on the time of year. 

why trees?

Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.

The six pillars explain why trees are so vital, and why they are so important for the environment...
