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.
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.
In this episode, we explore Guatemala, our Amazonian Project, Ghana, California and an amazing Deep Dive on Project Orca.
Tune in to get updates on our projects in Indonesia, Rwanda, California, India and find out about our successes from Plant a Tree Day.
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.
One Tree Planted's projects in Latin America are rebuilding forests and restoring land so the benefits of healthy tropical forests can be felt around the world. Our partners work with communities impacted by deforestation so they benefit from improved forest management practices and agricultural techniques like agroforestry. This also ensures the trees and land are taken care of for generations to come, and the forests can continue to thrive.
One Tree Planted's focus in Africa is on rebuilding animal habitat, restoring soil and critical watersheds, all while improving the lives of the communities who rely on the forests the most. Our planting partners promote agroforestry and educate farmers on the benefits of improved forestry practices, providing communities with sustainable sources of food, wood, and income.
One Tree Planted's projects across Asia are helping rebuild the habitat of critically endangered species like orangutans, tigers, and more than 1,700 species of birds. These projects are creating jobs and providing sustainable, long-term income for communities so people and forests can live together in harmony.
One Tree Planted has a growing number of projects in Europe. Our work in Iceland, Scotland, and Spain seeks to re-establish woodland, improve water and soil quality, and create habitat for wildlife in areas that were historically forested. Our project in Romania will reforest and restore abandoned agricultural land and areas destroyed by forest fire and other natural disasters.
One Tree Planted's projects in Australia and New Zealand are restoring forests following the destruction of the Black Summer bushfires; are rejuvenating critical habitat for wildlife like koalas and cockatoos; and safeguarding community watersheds through restoration of indigenous tree species.
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.
