Florida

One Dollar. One Tree.

Florida is home to unique ecosystems that range from subtropical to flatwood forests and mangrove swamps. Planting trees in Florida will help protect these ecosystems and promote biodiversity. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Restore natural ecosystems
  • Recover lands after natural disasters
  • Protect wildlife habitat
  • Florida is known as a state with beautiful, sprawling beaches. From Clearwater to Santa Rosa, Florida's beaches are full of clear blue water and white, rolling sand that attract hundreds of millions of visitors every year.
    When people think about Florida, forests probably aren’t the first thing that comes to mind. Florida's forests range from broad and open land to densely packed vegetation. As you head south, there are subtropical forests and ecosystems, too.
    Reforestation in Florida is critical to preserving these vital ecosystems and restoring land that has been degraded by human use and natural disasters. Florida's forests are just as important as its beaches, and planting trees will help us protect these lands for generations to come.
  • Healthy ecosystems are essential to protecting biodiversity and improving climate change resilience. By planting trees across Florida, you will be helping to restore and protect unique ecosystems that are home to a stunning breadth of life.
    Florida has experienced intensive development and natural disasters through the years, and degraded lands are one of the many consequences of this. Help restore Florida's essential forests and ecosystem services by planting trees today!
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you reports on our Florida projects, 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. Popular species include cypress, longleaf pine, slash pine, and palm.

About Florida

Florida state forests provide habitat to a wide variety of wildlife. Endangered species that inhabit Florida's forests and wetlands include the Florida panther, the American alligator and American crocodile, sea turtles, and manatees. Habitat loss and degradation is a major threat to the survival of these species.

The majority of Florida's endangered species live in wetlands, which play a key role in the health of our environment. Many of Florida’s wetlands have been altered by human activities, changing their hydrological function and threatening the natural communities that rely on them.

Longleaf pine ecosystems are another vital part of Florida's natural environment, supporting rare animal species like red-cockaded woodpeckers and gopher tortoises. Longleaf pine forests and savannas have been drastically reduced from an estimated 90 million acres to less than 3 million acres, largely due to urbanization and over-utilization. Your support will help our amazing reforestation partners to replant and restore these important ecological areas.

Why Plant in Florida?

Florida mangrove

Restore natural ecosystems

Healthy trees make for healthy ecosystems. They filter out excess nutrients and pollutants from wetlands and provide food, shade and shelter for an abundance of living creatures.

Palm Tree in Florida

Recover after natural disasters

Planting trees and creating healthy forests will help Florida's natural landscape become more resilient. Help lessen the impact of tropical storms, wildfires and flooding, and speed up the recovery process.

Florida Wildlife - Birds

Protect wildlife habitat

Florida's forests and wetlands contain many unique endangered species of birds, reptiles, mammals and plants. Restoring balance to their natural habitat will help ensure their survival.
