Together, we can do something about it
Carbon dioxide is one of the biggest drivers of climate change, which makes forests one of our greatest solutions.
Trees capture and absorb carbon dioxide from the air while releasing oxygen in its place. And, their size, root systems and long life span mean they can do this at scale.
Planting trees also brings numerous co-benefits, including shelter, water filtration, biodiversity and poverty alleviation.
Climate change is harming our planet, but if we all make a small change, we can make a big impact.
(more:trees) enables you to plant trees, so you can help sequester carbon emissions with ease. Sometimes it's the little things that count.
One tree sequesters an estimated 0.3t of CO2 over its growth life.
But that’s far from its only benefit.
Trees clean the air, filter water, regulate rainfall, improve soil quality, offer shelter and reduce flooding.
Trees provide work, improve crop yield, generate income sources and help the local economy.
Trees support different species of animals, invertebrates, plants, fungi, lichens and mosses.
Trees help healthy forests re-emerge, restoring animal habitats, purifying water sources, replenishing soil, controlling flooding and improving weather patterns.
The UN Sustainability Goals (SDGs) form part of a 15-year plan to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere.
Tree planting allows you to contribute to this plan significantly, supporting 10 of the 17 goals:
