Restoring Forests Across the Globe

One Tree Planted has planting projects in six global regions: North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and The Pacific. Every reforestation project has its own unique impact on forests, communities, animals, and the planet overall.

North America

North America

North America has a remarkable diversity of forest coverage. From the old-growth redwoods of California, to the temperate lowlands of Québec, Canada, North America's forests are home to many iconic plants and animals, and play an important role in supplying communities with food, water, and employment.

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.

Appalachia

Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Appalachia is one of America's most beautiful and renowned regions, stretching from the state of New York, all the way down to Alabama and Georgia. Home to the namesake Appalachian Trail, more than 150 tree species can be found in the region, making it one of the most diverse ecological regions in North America. Unfortunately, the resource wealth of the region also means much of the forest has been degraded by mining and timber operations. Over the years, an estimated 83% of habitat has been lost. However, with an ever-growing tourism industry environmentally conscious organizations and businesses are stepping up to return the region to its former glory.
  • This project is a 5-year, multi-state effort. Our planting partners are looking to restore forests across all Appalachian states. The first phase we're participating is in Kentucky. Supporting this project will return formerly unproductive mining, logging, and agricultural land to balance. Planting trees here will also benefit nearby communities as hydrological function will be improved, thus providing them with better quality water. This project also creates meaningful jobs in communities suffering from high rates of poverty and unemployment. Our planting partners are also implementing conservation practices to ensure the forests are maintained sustainably for many more years to come.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our Appalachia project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • A variety of trees will be planted in the affected area based on the needs of specific planting sites. Species include various types of oak, yellow poplar, American chestnut and hazelnut, silky dogwood, and persimmon.

Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth in all forms and interactions, thrives in healthy habitats where nature can recover after ecological disturbance. Reforestation is essential for this process. Learn more

Planting trees for biodiversity will contribute to:

  • Protecting endangered species by increasing forest cover
  • Restoring holistic ecosystems for a range of flora & fauna
  • Improving soil stability by restoring degraded areas
  • We are facing a climate crisis and the rapid loss of Earth's remaining wild places. As we lose habitats, we also lose biodiversity. This is where trees come in! Reforestation helps to restore at-risk ecosystems and habitats, ultimately increasing food supply, health, and overall well-being. Your donation will help to restore forest cover in Uganda, Australia, and the Pacific Northwest. Reforesting these areas will aid in the protection of endangered species, restoration of holistic ecosystems, and improvement of soil stability.
  • With the presence of a regenerating forest, we will create a safe haven for biodiversity. This brings a wide array of habitats, leading to a significant increase in species numbers. The restoration of degraded areas will also result in better soil stability, ultimately improving forest cover as a whole!
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our biodiversity projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • In order to maximize biodiversity across our multiple projects, we will plant an array of tree species such as Terminalia arjuna, Cassis fistula, Careya arborea, Ficus racemosa, Palo de tinto (Haematoxylum campechianum), Guacimo (Guazuma ulmifolia), Palo de rosa (Tabebuia rosea), Juniperus procera, Croton megalocarpus, Prunus africana.

British Columbia

British Columbia is known for its abundant forests, rugged Pacific coastlinemountains, plateaus, and pristine lakes and rivers. In recent years, visitors have noticed a difference in B.C.'s trees. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Recover areas affected by large-scale wildfires
  • Improve forest health by planting young, well-placed trees
  • Restore habitat for British Columbia's iconic wildlife species
  • 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. Sadly, 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 (see gallery) 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.

Join us in restoring our forests, one tree at a time. Reforestation is one of the best ways to restore soil and lanscapes from fire damage made to previously healthy environments. 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
  • We are planting trees in various locations affected by fires, with a current focus on Oregon and British Columbia. We only plant local native tree species, and reforestation starts once professional assessments are made to determine where human intervention would be most ecologically beneficial due to a lack of natural regeneration. Help restore these vital ecosystems by planting a tree 🌿
  • Our current focus is on the West coast of North America, where fires are burning in Oregon and the surrounding region to start an early fire season. Oregon's Bootleg fire is the largest in the US in 2021, with over 400,000 acres already burned. With so much fire damage, reforestation is essential in catalyzing the environmental recovery process, preventing invasive species, and restoring homes for biodiversity. As a result, there will be a need for hundreds of millions of trees. 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.

  • The Whaelghinbran forest falls within the UNESCO designated Fundy Biosphere Reserve and is situated within a critical wildlife corridor connecting Fundy National Park with New Brunswick's interior. The surrounding Acadian Forest is one of the most ecologically diverse forest types in Canada, as well as one of the most endangered. With a moist climate and a historically very low risk of fire, it is ideal for storing carbon and a prime region for focusing climate change resilience efforts. The Acadian Forest is recognized by the World Wildlife Fund as “critically endangered,” the highest risk category for extinction. Less than 5 percent of the Acadian Forest remains in pre-colonial condition. Whaelghinbran's 700+ acres of mature forest will insulate this newly reforested site from many of the vulnerabilities plantations experience when isolated from healthy forest sites.
  • The primary goal in reforesting this site is to increase species diversity and promote climate change resilience within a restoration management model. Future conditions will see the return of a healthy Acadian Forest ecosystem. The secondary objective is to have a restoration site at Whaelghinbran Forest. This will be used for demonstration and educational purposes in CFI outreach activities. The forest is frequented by groups from the forestry programs at the University of New Brunswick, the Maritime College of Forest Technology, as well as area schools and forestry professional associations.

  • Given its remarkably large land area, Ontario's forests are incredibly diverse. From the northern lowlands around Hudson Bay, through the Boreal forest, and on to the deciduous forests in the south, Ontario is home to a wide array of unique plants and wildlife. However, many of Ontario's amazing forests are being pressured by natural resource extraction and encroaching agricultural development. On top of this, in April 2019 the Ontario government cut funding for its tree-planting program, which intended on planting 50 million trees by 2025.
  • Reforestation in Ontario will greatly benefit communities, biodiversity, and the environment. Planting trees will restore critical watersheds, rebuild important wildlife habitats, and will ultimately combat climate change and global warming. Most importantly, your donation will help to fill the void left by the Ontario government's termination of the 50 Million Tree program. With your support, conservation organizations who were counting on support from the government will be able to continue planting trees across the province.

  • Deforestation isn't just happening in well-known global hotspots like Indonesia and Brazil's rainforest. A new analysis says forests are also shrinking on state and private land in Oregon, where an estimated 522,000 acres of forest cover have disappeared since 2000. That's an area six times larger than the city of Portland, equal to more than half of Oregon's designated state forests.
  • Oregon is home to iconic trees like Douglas fir, Oregon white oak, Ponderosa pine, Western red cedar, Pacific willow, Oregon ash, Western hemlock, black cottonwood, and big leaf maple. We plant over 35 native species so that the full ecosystem is supported and degraded forests can be restored. That includes soil, waterways, insects, birds, mammals, and people. Healthy forests = clean water and salmon. If you already love Oregon or hope to visit someday, please help us keep to plant trees in Oregon. We need to protect this special place for future generations of farmers, foresters, hikers and visitors.

For millennia, the endangered Southern Resident Orca have inhabited the Pacific Ocean from Northern California to British Columbia where salmon numbers continue to decline - impacting the orca. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Conserve salmon spawning grounds
  • Decrease water contamination & toxicity
  • Restore habitat by planting trees along rivers & streams
  • Every year, as the orca migrate North to South and back again they rely on the West Coast Chinook salmon for food (nearly 80% of their diet). 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 (see gallery) 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.

  • The Atlantic Forest, also known as Mata Atlantica, once spanned 130 million hectares across Brazil. Now, this tropical rainforest ecosystem covers only about 12% of its original area and is home to more than half of the country’s population. Centuries of deforestation for timber, sugar cane, coffee, cattle ranching, and urban sprawl have contributed to its current state. Nearly all of the remaining forest is in western São Paulo State, including the Mooro do Diablo State Park, the Black Lion Tamarin Ecological Station, and many smaller forest fragments.
  • Our partners in Brazil are working to reconnect the Morro do Diablo State Park and the Black Lion Tamarin Ecological station, two core areas of the Upper Parana Atlantic Rainforest Biosphere Reserve. This will be Brazil’s largest reforestation corridor and served as a guide for future projects in the region. It will create 60,000 ha of connected forest for endemic and endangered species and improve the livelihoods of 1,000 families. And from an ecological standpoint, it will help maintain viable populations of flora and fauna and mitigate harmful edge effects like exposure to light and wind, diseases, and invasive species.

In the 2000s, the Choco suffered 60% of the deforestation in Colombia, due to mining and logging.The location of the reforestation project is in the municipality of Tadó, in the department of the Chocó, which is the pacific region of Colombia. More specifically, the 5 village-areas in the municipality of Tadó where the project will take place are: Tapon, Corcobado, Angostura, Playa de Oro and Tabor.
  • We recognize reforestation through analog forestry as a cross-sectoral solution to restore degraded areas, reverse biodiversity loss, sequestrate carbon and slow down global warming, decontaminate the soil and water, while also addressing conditions of poverty by including trees and plants that yield fruits and vegetables which will be sold to local markets. Groups of women entrepreneurs will be created, while benefits from the project will prioritize on vulnerable households. Specifically, the project will restore 100 hectares of forest that will benefit 100 families with fruit trees and medicine plants. The forest will absorb 15,000 tons of carbon, and we will create a group of 50 women entrepreneurs.

With your help, we will:

  • Restore biodiversity in marine ecosystems
  • Increase capacity for 5-10x more carbon storage
  • Protect coastal communities from rising sea levels & storm surges
  • Mangroves play a vital part in our tropical and subtropical ecosystems. Found where the ocean meets land, they protect our coastlines, keep our beaches beautiful, restore biodiversity in marine ecosystems, and store 5 to 10 times more carbon than land ecosystems. However, like many other tree species, mangroves are at risk. Some estimate that approximately 1% of our mangroves are lost yearly, posing a major threat to coastline communities. With your donation, we can restore our mangrove forests to protect vulnerable communities from rising sea levels and storm surges while also preventing soil erosion.
  • Like many mangrove areas, coastal forests provide vital protection for millions of people from climate change impacts, cyclones, tidal surges, and coastal erosion. Planting mangroves will help protect the natural embankments of river mouths, thus restoring the aquatic environment, and ultimately restoring ecological balance. Our mangrove restoration projects typically occur throughout Asia and Latin America where these trees are native and can thrive, including in Costa Rica, The Philippines, India, Haiti, and Guatemala. Your donation will provide social benefits in these regions, such as activities like fishing, and even new income-generating options.

Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth in all forms and interactions, thrives in healthy habitats where nature can recover after ecological disturbance. Reforestation is essential for this process. Learn more

Planting trees for biodiversity will contribute to:

  • Protecting endangered species by increasing forest cover
  • Restoring holistic ecosystems for a range of flora & fauna
  • Improving soil stability by restoring degraded areas
  • We are facing a climate crisis and the rapid loss of Earth's remaining wild places. As we lose habitats, we also lose biodiversity. This is where trees come in! Reforestation helps to restore at-risk ecosystems and habitats, ultimately increasing food supply, health, and overall well-being. Your donation will help to restore forest cover in Uganda, Australia, and the Pacific Northwest. Reforesting these areas will aid in the protection of endangered species, restoration of holistic ecosystems, and improvement of soil stability.
  • With the presence of a regenerating forest, we will create a safe haven for biodiversity. This brings a wide array of habitats, leading to a significant increase in species numbers. The restoration of degraded areas will also result in better soil stability, ultimately improving forest cover as a whole!
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our biodiversity projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.

Côte d'Ivoire, once covered with forest, has lost more than 70% of its trees since 1960 largely due to the cocoa industry. An amazing opportunity exists to bring trees back to cocoa farms! Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Create local jobs for young people & women
  • Restore soil health to increase biodiversity
  • Improve livelihoods through agroforestry
  • This project will bring trees back to cocoa farms to create agroforestry, a sustainable farming practice that will support both the environment and local cocoa farmers. Restoring these cocoa regions to better ecological health will have a direct impact on soil quality to prevent erosion, will provide habitat for biodiversity, improve air quality and climate, and benefit women smallholder farmers to support gender equality 🌱
  • By the end of three years, ecological benefits will include carbon sequestration, soil fertility enhancement, nutrient cycling, creation of soils, refuge for biodiversity, water and air quality improvement, flood and erosion control (tree roots hold soil in place), fruits, poles, timber and fuel from pruning, pollination, natural pest control, climate regulation, moderation of natural phenomena like extreme heat or rain.

    Community benefits include forest and tree products and services, more stable and productive farms, improved nutrition, emergent new income streams. The project will be looking at two additional income-generating activities (on top of cocoa trade) for cocoa farmers. We anticipate that it will create at least 300 jobs for women and young people!
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our Côte d'Ivoire project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • The project will largely follow the CCC's recommended list of trees for cocoa agroforestry and its three strata model. The tree species range from slower to faster-growing and fall into three strata. The first stratum will consist of cocoa, exotic fruit species - soursop, avocado, and mango - and indigenous and exotic N-fixing trees. The middle stratum will consist of indigenous fruit trees such as akpi, bitté, and kplé. The topmost stratum will consist of fraké, framiré, makaoré, niangon, and iroko.

  • Kenya’s Kijabe Forest is a highland mosaic ‘Afro-alpine’ forest that was once dominated by trees, such as the East African pencil-cedar and African olive. Roughly one-third of the original high-canopy forest still stands and provides important habitat for biodiversity. The forest is only about 5,000 hectares, but a community of almost 200,000 people depend on it for water, wood, and agriculture. Increasing pressure for land poses significant threats to the region, leading to the over-extraction of resources and illegal timber harvesting. Planting trees here will help protect this vital ecosystem, promote environmental education, and foster sustainable livelihoods through seed collection and ecotourism.
  • Our partner, The Kijabe Forest Trust, is committed to restoring 5,000 hectares of primary forests in Kijabe. This project will work directly with communities to protect, conserve, and restore the forest, helping to safeguard water and other ecosystem services. Planting trees here will improve access to sustainable livelihoods by employing community members, promoting ecotourism and non-timber forest products, and providing environmental education and advocacy.

  • This reforestation initiative is working with local communities to restore native forests across the landscape at a number of sites across Malawi. In many village areas the need for fuel wood forces local people, often women, to walk long distances. This has led to forest degradation in nearby areas, fragmenting wildlife habitat and presenting hardships for local farming communities. That’s why your support will go a long way! This tree planting has a huge impact by not only restoring forests and all the benefits they bring to wildlife, watersheds, climate stability and more, but doing so in combination with sustainable development. This project will restore indigenous forest trees to the landscape in cooperation with communities while installing water wells and pumps, as well as fruit trees. Planting in combination with sustainable development goals tackles the roots of deforestation by taking pressure off mature trees and educating local women how to build fuel efficient clay brick stoves to save firewood and improve their lives.
  • By focusing on restoration with local communities, pressure on remaining forests is lessened while providing fuelwood from dropped branches and leaves from existing trees to meet people’s resource needs. In combination with plantings of fruit trees, installation of community wells and other low-tech developments, forests can be restored, habitat for wildlife enhanced and people’s lives improved. In the process, newly planted trees will begin the process of sequestering carbon and improving hydrological benefits to surrounding areas. In time these new forests will also provide many other benefits by preventing erosion, improving soil health, lowering temperatures and providing regenerative resources for people. These areas will then once again become complex ecosystems capable of supporting a broad range of wildlife and other species while allowing sustainable livelihoods to develop.

  • The International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST) supports Small Groups of subsistence farmers in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and India to combat the devastating effects of deforestation, poverty, and drought. Farmers come together in Small Groups of 6-12, forming Clusters of 20-70 Small Groups. Clusters meet monthly to address agricultural, HIV/AIDS, nutritional, and fuel challenges, as well as to discuss tree planting. As TIST expands to more groups and more areas, it ensures more trees, more biodiversity, more climate change benefit and more income for more people.
  • The trees that the TIST farmers plant provide food, fodder, fruits, fuel, building materials as well as windbreaks and shade. They also absorb carbon as they grow, thus reducing the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that is driving climate change. The shade and water retention reduce soil temperatures, improve soil moisture, water supply, and crop yields. The other agricultural improvements improve the soil carbon, and thus improve fertility and production.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our Tanzania project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.

  • Uganda has a rapidly growing population, which is putting a great deal of stress on the country's forests by increasing demand for firewood, pushing agricultural expansion, and expanding land settlement. As a result, Uganda now has one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world. In Northern Uganda, much of the forest has been cleared for charcoal production, degrading wildlife habitat and presenting a hardship for local farmers.
  • Our partners are working with local farmers in Paibona, Northern Uganda to plant trees on their land. These trees will provide the farmers with sustainable food and income by growing fruits, nuts, and medicines. In an area that has experienced extensive clear cutting for charcoal production, planting trees will improve agricultural yields, reduce soil erosion, and improve the health of the soil. It will also protect biodiversity by improving habitat and will provide a jump-off point for several other sustainable agroforestry projects in the area, improving the livelihoods of hundreds of Ugandan farmers.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our Uganda project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.

Ranging from the Indian Ocean to the Himalayas, from the Bay of Bengal to the Hindu Kush, India's forests reflect the subcontinent's great diversity of landscapes & ecosystems. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Reduce hunger & malnutrition
  • Support at-risk coastal ecosystems
  • Assist marginalized communities by increasing income
  • India is a vast land full of contrasts. Moist and dry tropical forests, temperate and subtropical montane forests, alpine forests and mangrove forests are all found here. Recognized as one of the 17 “megadiverse” countries, around 8% of the world's flora and fauna is found in India, including species like Bengal Tigers. With nearly 3,000, India supports the largest population globally. Additionally, India's forests support the livelihoods of almost 275 million people, who depend on them for food, fuelwood, fodder and other forest products.
  • Our work in India is primarily focused on planting fruit trees. Our amazing partners are working with local communities across twelve Indian states to plant fruit trees to fight hunger, improve local economies, and combat climate change. Your support will help us make a huge difference. Each fruit tree we plant will equate to at least $10 USD in food and nutrition each year, with a cumulative value of 5 million dollars garnered over the next 50-60 years. While the socioeconomic benefits of this effort are undeniable, there are many ecological benefits too. India has some of the worst air quality in the world which is a massive drain on human health. Cue trees, which filter the air, trap pollutants, and provide thousands of pounds of breathable oxygen over their lifetimes.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our India project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.

Mangroves play a vital role in our tropical and subtropical ecosystems. Found where the ocean meets land, they protect our coastlines and keep our beaches beautiful. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Restore biodiversity in marine ecosystems
  • Increase capacity for 5-10x more carbon storage
  • Protect coastal communities from rising sea levels & storm surges
  • Mangroves play a vital part in our tropical and subtropical ecosystems. Found where the ocean meets land, they protect our coastlines, keep our beaches beautiful, restore biodiversity in marine ecosystems, and store 5 to 10 times more carbon than land ecosystems. However, like many other tree species, mangroves are at risk. Some estimate that approximately 1% of our mangroves are lost yearly, posing a major threat to coastline communities. With your donation, we can restore our mangrove forests to protect vulnerable communities from rising sea levels and storm surges while also preventing soil erosion.
  • Like many mangrove areas, coastal forests provide vital protection for millions of people from climate change impacts, cyclones, tidal surges, and coastal erosion. Planting mangroves will help protect the natural embankments of river mouths, thus restoring the aquatic environment, and ultimately restoring ecological balance. Our mangrove restoration projects typically occur throughout Asia and Latin America where these trees are native and can thrive, including in Costa Rica, The Philippines, India, Haiti, and Guatemala. Your donation will provide social benefits in these regions, such as activities like fishing, and even new income-generating options.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our mangrove restoration projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • We are mainly focused on planting Avicennia alba, a mangrove species that can withstand about 5 hours of submergence in salty water. Along with the upper and soil-stabilized sites, we will be planting Sonneratia apetala with a variety of other species. Both of these species have lateral roots that aid in the resistance of water impact to lower tidal currents.

  • Introducing a new afforestation project in Iceland! While Iceland used to have up to 40% forest cover centuries ago, deforestation has reduced this to just 0,5% today, and since so much time has gone by that's why this unique project is categorized as afforestation as opposed to reforestation. This 150 hectare area will involve planting trees on the lower, south-facing slopes on the farm “Dragon's Nest" named after its' former owner. The area is degraded former grazing land with low-growing and largely non-continuous vegetation, and a lot of ecological potential to become a forest once again. The main goals of this project are carbon sequestration and soil conservation.
  • In time, degraded and eroded land (the majority of the area) will develop more vigorous vegetation, both the trees themselves and the undergrowth. A mixed species forest will provide enriched biodiversity 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. There will be open areas for shade-intolerant plants and open-ground birds to remain in the area. The forest will moderate stream fluctuations creating better conditions for freshwater organisms including many insects, small crustaceans and fish. The forest will make its contribution to carbon sequestration, which will be a reversal of the current emissions.

    The afforestation area is open to people from the local village, Breiðdalsvík. With time, footpaths and other outdoor recreation facilities will be developed. Local people will get jobs in fence maintenance and planting the trees.

  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our New Zealand project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • Our partners choose trees that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the ecosystem and region. This includes various types of native trees and nursery crop species. Depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored, native trees may include manuka, kahikatea, matae, miro, titoki and other indigenous species.

Reforestation Impact Stories

 Planting trees comes with its own diverse benefits, challenges, and rewards. At One Tree Planted, we have the wonderful opportunity to work on inspirational projects that will hopefully leave a positive mark on you. Check back monthly for our most recent highlights!

Plant trees for the Orca

Protect the Orca

We're working throughout California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia to plant 1.5 Million trees across 50+ watersheds to benefit the Endangered Southern Resident Orca, who 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, which provide nearly 80% of their diet, to sustain them. However, salmon stocks are diminishing due to loss of habitat and increasing pollution — ultimately impacting the Orca downstream.

India

Fruit trees change lives, and this is our fifth year partnering with an incredible, locally-led organization in India, with whom we have planted over 1.5 million fruit trees. Once they begin producing fruit, the trees will provide a source of nourishment and income to marginal farmers living in some of toughest terrains in India — as well as providing a host of ecosystem benefits including fighting pollution, conserving water, preventing soil erosion and more.

California

Working with big partners like the United States Forest Service and CALFIRE and smaller ones like local Resource Conservation Districts and private landowners across the Golden State, we've planted over 5.4 million trees to date. We're dedicated to helping partners at any level and any location ranging from federal and state to public and private land, because everyone should be able to rebuild and restore after wildfires.

Empowering Women Farmers in Rwanda

In 2019, we completed three separate projects in Rwanda, all of which centered around agroforestry. The first was with a women-led coop that planted 35,000 fruit-producing trees; the second a group of students who planted 9,000 trees as part of an initiative to fight poverty; and the third was with farmers who planted 60,000 trees to produce sustainable coffee.
