Why Plant Trees?
Capture Carbon Emissions
Trees have an amazing ability to absorb carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their biomass. Reforestation ranks highly in terms of climate change solutions. Every little bit makes a difference.
Reforestation creates habitats for animals, many of which are imperiled by habitat destruction. Trees also produce food for some species, including humans. This is important because if we lose these habitats - and the plants and animals that depend on them.
Trees slow water runoff, reducing soil erosion. This is important because soil erosion can damage aquatic ecosystems, and because soil carries polluting nutrients and chemicals into our waterways.

Helping people help the earth
Who plants the trees?
Planting trees has never been more important. Not only do they clean the air and help cool the planet, but they can also provide a path to economic self-sufficiency for people around the world. Our partner, Ecologi, works with organizations that seek out and train local citizens to plant and maintain trees. By providing fair wages and opportunities for growth, these sustainability efforts help empower people and give them the chance to create a better future for themselves and their families.
