ReForest Fund Update – December 2023

The Trillion Trees ReForest Fund supports forest restoration across a portfolio of sites where our partners have long-term conservation programmes and where forest degradation needs to be reversed, working with local communities every step of the way.

There has never been a more critical time to protect and restore our planet. Trillion Trees believes that forests are one of our greatest hopes and play a key role in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss.

Our projects focus on recovering and regrowing native and natural forests, but we take a landscape approach, using a wide range of methods and work with communities to improve livelihoods and address the underlying drivers of deforestation. This ensures our efforts make a difference to people's lives and a lasting contribution to reducing carbon in the atmosphere, as well as preserving critical biodiversity.

Thanks to the generous support of individuals, foundations and companies that have donated to the ReForest Fund, we are supporting 12 projects so far, which are restoring over 340,000 trees.

Trillion Trees has over 40 projects worldwide in critically important landscapes, that need support to restore degraded forest, enable the recovery of vital ecosystems and re-create habitat for endangered species. For example, protecting and restoring the largest intact rainforest in Guatemala for endangered species like the jaguar; or supporting local communities to restore biodiverse forests across Tanzania and Mozambique.

Whether you donate to restore 1 tree or 10,000, your support ensures forests thrive into the future.
