Buy one, plant one
Through our incredible tree-planting partners around the world, Trees for the Future plants trees across 13 countries and four continents. Ranging from Kenya to the Amazon, New Orleans to Vietnam, our partners re-forest globally, working to not just sequester carbon from the atmosphere, but also provide full-time jobs to tree planters and vital nutrition to entire communities.
Carbon pollution is a serious threat to the Earth’s climate. Trees are one major natural way of cleaning carbon pollution from our air, sequestering it in the ground and helping to fight climate change.
Because of mass production and consumption of resources, every 48 hours, we lose a forest the size of NYC.
A single tree can... provide enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe and reduce peak summer temperatures by 2-9 degrees Fahrenheit.
... they help settle out and trap dust, pollen and smoke from the air.
...they create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for birds and other animals.
...they absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses, such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, from the air and release oxygen.
… a single tree can offset an average of one ton of carbon over its lifetime.
… forests are responsible for absorbing a quarter of human-induced carbon emissions.
