TreeSisters: Protect, Restore, Reforest

Protecting, restoring and reforesting our planet is in our hands. TreeSisters have funded the planting of over 25 million trees across the tropics but in order to protect against climate change extremes and replenish the world’s ecosystems, wildlife and forests, we need your help to plant more.

Situation

Climate change, deforestation, forest fires, changing weather patterns, extinctions and an increasing risk of disease require action now. Tropical forests are ‘the lungs’ of our world and the beating heart of the hydrological cycle. They stabilise weather, create and cleanse rain, sequester the CO2 that is driving climate change and are the most biodiverse regions on earth. We are losing them at a staggering rate. Destruction needs to stop and restoration needs to become the new normal.

Solution

TreeSisters focuses on reforestation through the funding of ethical, community-led planting projects that support local communities and restore biodiversity, water cycles, weather systems and soils. We are about so much more than planting trees. We know that social change is needed, to shift humanity from a consumer to a restorer species. Through education and leadership, our vision is to make it as normal to give back to nature as it currently is to take nature for granted.

  • If I had to use one word about TreeSisters it is HOPE. After despairing for so long about the state of our planet and humanity, TreeSisters has given me so much hope for our future and the feeling that it is possible to change this mess around.

  • Having analyzed the activities, intention and approaches of hundreds of tree campaigns, NGO and projects, TreeSisters stands out as one of the most ethical and compassionate tree growing organizations we found.
