Trees play a vital role in the health of the planet and its inhabitants, helping purify our water and air, cool our climate, improve soil quality and provide homes and sustenance for various forms of life. We believe organizations like Tree-Nation are essential to improving our environment, and we are delighted to be supporting their vital work. So far, we have planted 8,045 trees across the reforestation projects we support1.
Please make a selection below to help us plant a forest. You will find information about the reforestation projects you will be supporting, benefits of planting trees and Tree-Nation below.
Camino Verde, Peru.
Deep in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, the Camino Verde project is dedicated to protecting and understanding the region’s biodiversity, protecting indigenous peoples’ rights, autonomy, and wisdom, and spreading sustainable ways of life while encouraging equitable, sustainable development.
Eden Reforestation Project, Madagascar.
In response to the large-scale loss of mangrove and upland forests in Madagascar, Eden Reforestation Projects initiated the Madagascar Reforestation Project. Since its launch in 2007, the program has successfully planted over 407 million mangrove and dry deciduous trees in northwest Madagascar.
Trees for Tigers, India.
The Trees for Tigers project is being implemented on the fringes of Similipal National Park, home to the only known habitat of the elusive melanistic (or black) tigers. Similipal is one of India’s oldest tiger reserves. Declared in 1973 under Project Tiger, it contains 2,750 sq. km. of forest and is prime habitat for tigers, prey species, and elephants.
PineBridge will cover the cost of planting trees via Tree Nation reforestation projects.
Trees and forests are the earth's lungs, producing oxygen while absorbing CO2 and harmful pollutant gases. Natural forests capture CO2, acting as carbon sinks. Every year, forests and trees absorb the equivalent of two billion tonnes of CO2, roughly one-third of all CO2 released from the burning of fossil fuels.
Trees slow rain runoff and purify our water as it filters through their roots.
Trees’ root systems make soil less vulnerable to erosion, and their canopies also protect the soil below.
Forests support approximately 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also support vital insect populations, with some varieties, such as the birch and willow, sustaining upwards of 300 species.
Many of the world’s extreme poor live close to forested areas. Food, drink, and raw materials obtained from these forests can account for up to 28% of total household earnings in some tropical and subtropical regions.
