We want to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Together we can restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world.
Founded in 2014, One Tree Planted Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on a global mission to reforest our planet, provide education and awareness on the importance of trees in our ecosystem, and inspire engagement and action. We are action-oriented and seek to have impact through quality and community-driven tree planting projects throughout North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Pacific.
One Tree Planted engages and impacts populations all over the world. In just nine years, we have managed to get over 100 million trees in the ground through new and established relationships with over 463 planting partners. In 2022 alone, we planted over 52 million trees within 327 planting projects in 74 countries across six regions and have potentially sequestered more than 10 million tons of carbon over the next 20 years. Through these projects, we helped to create 2,438 jobs, supported 50,582 farming families, and engaged over 32,000 volunteers to restore 97,769 hectares of land. In 2022, One Tree Planted coordinated 468 tree planting events worldwide and engaged and empowered over 26,254 women in developing countries. Our T.R.E.E.S. (Teaching Reforestation, Environmental Engagement, and Sustainability) program grew enormously in 2022, adding 355 new classroom registrations. By collaborating with the World Resources Institute, The Jane Goodall Institute, and Rainforest Alliance, One Tree Planted has been able to maximize its impact with innovative solutions to restore the planet.
One Tree Planted has impacted populations at all levels. On a macro level, One Tree Planted has helped to reduce the negative effects of carbon emissions, air pollution, and global warming. It has inspired and engaged individuals, schools, foundations, and businesses to take action to combat climate change. It has restored landscapes for economic, social, and environmental well-being. On a micro level, it has supported community development by building and beautifying urban green space and improving air and water quality.

Its action and positive story-telling has inspired many and boosted the sense of community all around the world.
