15,000 tree species are threatened. Each plays a unique role in their ecosystem, and many have an important cultural meaning too. It's high time to save them from extinction. And we're doing it – together with you, botanical institutions such as BGCI, and our local tree-planting partners. In India, we plant Drypetes porteri, a threatened species native to the Tamil Nadu forest. In northern Cambodia, we plant several species that figure on the IUCN Red List, including Dalbergia oliveri. In Brazil, our partners at Instituto Espinhaço work hard to make sure the extremely rare Dimorphandra wilsonii does not go extinct. In Australia, meanwhile, the native and threatened species we plant create habitats for endangered animals. It’s hard to imagine a more meaningful gift.
- After you’ve completed your purchase, we’ll email you a beautiful (and printable) certificate that highlights your cause and the number of trees you bought. It makes a great gift!
Your payment will be added to our tree fund (parked at ethical banks GLS and Triodos) that will be used to plant trees in the near future.
