Plant a tree for $1

And say Yes to a healthy climate,
ending poverty, biodiversity and HOPE!
For more than 35 years, Plant With Purpose has partnered with farming communities around the world to reverse poverty and deforestation.
To date, we have planted nearly 50 million trees.

We believe that we honor God when we care for people and creation.
“At a time when the impacts of climate change are making headlines, Plant With Purpose is on the ground with farming communities on the front lines, complementing their existing resources to foster resilience.”

Why plant trees?

Trees fight climate change
Forests are carbon sinks. 15% of greenhouse gas emissions come from deforestation, but 48 pounds of carbon dioxide can be sequestered by a mature tree within a year.
Trees help reduce poverty
Agroforestry is a method of planting trees on farmland so crops can benefit. Because 85% of people living in poverty around the world rely on agriculture, this increases their income.
Trees heal
the soil
Trees protect against wind and rain, the two most aggressive forces of soil erosion. Roots provide structure to hold soil and nutrients in place, while allowing water to pass more efficiently.
Trees reflect resurrection
When plants and trees die, their nutrients return to the soil where other plants can absorb them and new plants can grow. This process reminds us that in the Gospel story, death is not the end.
Trees promote biodiversity
80% of all land-based plant and animal species live in forest habitats. Habitat loss creates the threat of extinction.
Trees strengthen community
1.6 billion people around the world rely on forests for their living. Research shows links between deforestation and conflict, but community forest management promotes collaboration and unity.
"I've seen hundreds of development projects in 30+ countries, but none of them are as effective as Plant With Purpose, whose whole-community approach results in good forestry practices that bring lasting change."
