  • California

    One Dollar. One Tree.

    Known for its abundant woodlands, California is home to a whopping 33 million acres of diverse forests that provide us with recreation, wildlife habitats, and jaw-dropping scenery. Learn more

    With your help, we will:

    • Restore areas affected by wildfires
    • Increase biodiversity to protect freshwater & soil
    • Boost the liveliness of California communities
    • If you happen to venture these pristine landscapes, you'll find yourself immersed in majestic forestry where giant coastal redwoods take the stage, often surrounded by rare plants. Unfortunately, five years of drought and large-scale bark beetle infestation have seriously damaged these once-thriving forests. Not to mention, 2017's record-breaking wildfire season burned more than 1.3 million acres – an area the size of Delaware. 2020's fire season have consumed close to 3 million acres, resulting in hundreds of millions of trees that must be restored. Together, let's restore California's forests so that we can continue to enjoy their natural beauty for many years to come!
    • Trees play a vital role in maintaining the liveliness of California communities. With your contribution, we will help restore areas affected by wildfires throughout the whole of California, thus producing ecological benefits such as habitat restoration and erosion control. With these funds, hard-working foresters will dedicate time 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 gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you reports on the California project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
    • In order to maximize the impact of your donation, we will determine the most appropriate species to plant, based on the time of year. Some of the species we will plant include the Sugar Pine, California Redwood (known as the State Tree), Maple, Elderberry, Willow, Birch, Dogwood, Cedar, Giant Sequoia, and Walnut.

    About California

    The combination of low precipitation and record high temperatures during California's most recent drought (2012–16) resulted in dramatically increased tree mortality and large, severe wildfires. The State Forest Service now spends over 50% of its budget fighting fires, when a decade ago it was less than 20%.

    California’s forests need active management in order to improve their health, reduce the risk of major wildfires and pest infestations, and protect this beautiful natural playground for future generations. Our amazing reforestation partners work with several state and federal forestry assistance programs as well as private landowners, aiming to improve the health and productivity of forest lands.

    As well as recovering fire-damaged lands, your support for reforestation in California will help restore native species that are endangered by fungus and bark beetle infestations, such as the Sugar Pine.  

    Why Plant Trees in California?

    Reduce the Impact of Wildfires

    Reduce the Impact of Wildfires

    Help us prevent wildfires in California from spreading catastrophically. Young, healthy forests can help suppress future wildfires and reduce the impact of smoke on public health.

    Protect Water Supply

    Protect Water Supply

    Two-thirds of California's surface water supply comes from its mountainous forests. Improving the health of these forests will make them more resilient to drought and climate change.

    Improve Forest Resilience

    Improve Forest Resilience

    With your help, we will create resilient forests that can absorb and recover from fire, drought, and insect outbreaks. Together we can save threatened local tree species like the Sugar Pine!
