WHERE WE PLANT
There is a need for 3.4 trillions of trees to be planted all over the world. From Brazil to America, Canada, Europe… trees are needed everywhere. Different location has it’s own types of trees.
1treellion.org is granting funds to local organizations all over the world that plant trees. But not just plant trees, plant the right trees. Make sure they are supporting biodiversity. That the community is supporting those trees, making sure those trees will reach maturity.
ORGANIZATIONS WE SUPPORT
To raise the level of transparency we are listing here some information on the projects we support. As we are focused more on the world and less on the world wide web it takes us longer to show all projects. Please stay tuned, as there are more organizations and countries than this list...

Six different species of trees were planted in this project.
A youth-centric organization driven by the vision of creating communities where people and nature flourish. Through landscape restoration activities like planting trees and agroforestry we build resilience for smallholder farmers against the changing climate while economically empowering unemployed young people in Uganda's rural communities through education and training on setting up and managing indigenous tree nurseries and tree farms. The trees we plant include: Maesopsis Emini, Gravelia, Mugavu, Muvule, Mahogany, Khaya, Musiizi, Caliandra among others and fruit trees including jackfruit, Mangoes, paw -paws and more.

Our community consists of 100 eco-driven individuals (including forestry experts) with whom we plant trees. We created a framework for sustainable development in Central Portugal called the 4S model:
Sustainable landscape: Mediterranean Mosaic
Sustainable design and technology: Biomimicry
Sustainable communities: Circular economy
Sustainable business models: 4Returns
Our projects increase public awareness on social development and environmental responsibility among Cultural Creatives.Placing a strong emphasis on quality communication and content creation which enhances engagement with the local, national and global community.
Supporting the Paris Climate Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals in close partnership with coastal communities, we are focused on mangrove restoration and conservation with potential to plant on 100,000 Ha and conserve 580,000 Ha mangrove forests in Myanmar. We are planting an additional 5000 Ha this year, to increase from 2021.
So far, with what we have planted we have achieved 92% survival rate of trees and follow up research on our own mangrove gene bank in cooperation with Pathein University and Forest University.
