One Dollar. One Tree.

Bhutan, a landlocked country in South Asia, borders the eastern edge of the Himalayan mountains. Help restore native landscapes like subtropical plains, steep mountains, and deep valleys. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Measure slope erosion and enact erosion control
  • Protect wildlife habitat and enhance native biodiversity
  • Impact local communities by providing education and creating jobs
  • Planting trees in Bhutan will be done in two areas: fallow farmland and degraded landscapes. Almost 25% of available arable land is currently left fallow, meaning plowed but unsown land, due to a shortage of farm labor, water scarcity, and human-wildlife conflict. The increasing area of agricultural fallow has also impacted immediate food self-sufficiency and security, threatening the supply of adequate nutrition. There are also widespread degraded landscapes due to landslides, gully erosion and ravine formation, making land unsuitable for agriculture. Our Bhutan project will plant fruit trees to restore these landscapes all while providing food to wildlife and jobs to local communities.🌲
  • Reforestation in Bhutan will enhance the micro-climactic conditions in the area to be stable and enriching. It will also provide habitats for wild animals and help mitigate human-wildlife conflict by creating buffer zones. This project will also provide educational and economic opportunities by working with younger people in the community and creating jobs for locals. Our project aims to protect cultural knowledge by enabling meaningful income generation in areas with few other opportunities and allow communities to remain vibrant and in place. 💚
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you reports on our Bhutan project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • We always plant a mix of diverse, native species from local nurseries. This project is working to provide jobs and food, so the native species grown in the nurseries include walnut trees, cherry trees, blue pine, chir pine, and hazelnut trees.

About Bhutan

Bhutan's steep mountains are a part of the Great Himalayans, with peaks over 24,000 feet high in elevation. The valleys between mountains are shaped by winding rivers that run down from northern glaciers and into the Indian Plains. Bhutan has a cold, temperate climate in the north and a humid, subtropical climate in the southern foothills.

Because of Bhutan's landscape dichotomy, it is rich in species biodiversity. The small country is considered a global biodiversity "hotspot" with over 5,000 species of plants and close to 200 species of mammals. Some of the animals found in Bhutan include red pandas, snow leopards, musk deer, and takins (the country's national animal).

Why Plant Trees in Bhutan?

Enact Erosion Control

Enact Erosion Control

Bhutan's steep mountains and deep valleys make erosion a difficult thing to control in order to protect the country's forests. Controlling erosion and the way water flows will strengthen the forests and prevent trees from becoming uprooted.

Protect Habitat and Enhance Biodiversity

Protect Habitat and Enhance Biodiversity

Planting trees will give more animals in the area a place to call home. Replenishing a forest through agroforestry will increase biodiversity by attracting more wildlife to the area.

Provide Education and Create Jobs

Provide Education and Create Jobs

Our Bhutan project will plant fruit trees on community farmers' land, and educate them on the importance of reforestation. About 1000 plus communities will benefit from the project, and the community farmers will be able to increase their income through the sale of fruits.
