The Trillion Trees ReForest Fund returns the right trees to the right places. We are restoring forests at crucial sites across the world, growing trees and promoting natural regrowth. We select the approach based on the surrounding ecosystem and needs of the local people in and around the forests.
All of our restoration projects are where our partners have long-term conservation programmes, and involve local communities every step of the way.
Launched in 2020, we made our first ReForest grants in early 2021 and publish update reports every six months. Read our latest report here.
Our projects are community-led and supported. We work to restore natural forests, while providing critical resources for the people who depend on them. Everything from sustainable agroforestry, to community woodlots to reduce pressure on natural forest, to new opportunities like ecotourism. Forests that work for people, and nature.
Hear from people on the ground:
Planting a tree is not the only way to speed up and scale up the power of forests.
Trees are part of a larger ecosystem that we have to carefully manage to make sure the trees we plant grow into the wildlife habitats and livelihood sources so desperately needed.
Our projects focus on recovering and regrowing natural forests, but we take a landscape approach, using a wide range of methods, and looking for opportunities to provide livelihoods improvements and address the underlying drivers of deforestation. This ensures our efforts make a lasting contribution to reducing carbon in the atmosphere and preserving critical biodiversity.
