tree planting with a community in Ukraine / restoration project

This Spring 2024, 1treellion is planting 50,000 trees in Ukraine
Beginning the restoration of a devastated landscape and providing much-needed jobs

The people of Ukraine are paying a heavy price with war. The destruction of the landscape and natural ecosystems is also devastating. During COP27, President Zelensky shared that the war in Ukraine has destroyed 5 million acres of forest. The people of Ukraine asked for our help and we are answering this call.

1treellion is heading to Ukraine to generate hope and restoration in the endless dark war and climate crisis era. We are shifting the narrative and inspiring change through action. Our focus is healing the land by planting trees and supporting communities.


We will plant 50,000 trees across secure land in Ukraine with a local team. Our reforestation strategy begins in April 2024, as Spring is the perfect time to plant. 1treellion, along with our local partners, have been training foresters in sustainable forestry, soil analysis, crop selection, as well as creating jobs for women. Our on-the-ground local partners are women-led. This project will provide jobs for 21 local foresters and villagers, ten of whom are women.

Forest Restoration

We Have Done It Before!

1treellion has successfully planted and supported 12 communities in 10 countries globally. Planting in Guatemala, Tanzania, Armenia, Ghana, Uganda, Thailand, Brazil, Kenya, Nicaragua, and The Republic of Congo. Our planting impacted approximately 60,000 people directly and 220K people indirectly. We were supporting with sanitation, clean water, food, jobs, and of course mitigating the effects of climate change.

The average survival rate of our trees stands at 80% vs the global average of 19%.


Now, we are bringing our knowledge to Ukraine.
