Reforestation is one of the best ways to restore ecosystems that have been degraded and deforested. Plant trees to support restoration work in the locations where it is needed most.
Every One Tree Planted project has its own unique challenges and opportunities, but what holds true no matter where you go is that when done correctly, reforestation changes lives for the better. When you Plant trees for Impact, you are making it possible for our reforestation partners, who have dedicated their lives to restoring the landscapes they love, to do what they do best: plant trees where they are needed the most. Reforestation helps the environment by guaranteeing or accelerating the re-establishment of healthy forest structure after extreme events such as forest fires, regrowing the forest canopy, and preserving biodiversity within the ecosystem.
Planting trees promotes diverse ecosystems that encourage biodiversity and support a range of habitat types.
Improved Soil Health
Planting trees helps to rebuild the soil structure and nutrient profile, soaks up excess water, and reduces erosion.
Increase Climate Resilience
Trees help cool the planet by absorbing and storing harmful greenhouse gasses such as carbon dioxide, and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere.
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Their projects span the globe and are done in partnership with local communities and environmental organizations to create an impact for nature, people, and wildlife.
Reforestation helps to restore forests that have been degraded or deforested, provide jobs for social impact, and restore biodiversity habitat. Many projects have overlapping objectives that contribute to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. These objectives support the growth of healthy forests and the development of urban forestry initiatives.
With your help, we will: Create jobs and foster prosperity in Andean communities, restore unique ecosystems and safeguard vital watersheds, and combat climate change and increase resilience.
