One of my favorite charities that I have regularly donated to and supported over the past decade. $40 USD can help plant 400 trees. That's 10x higher promise than most other tree planting organizations.
Looking forward to seeing more awesome work from Trees for the Future :)
This organization has grown slowly over the years, reporting without slick brochures and working in cooperation with those they serve. They recently lost their founder but I surely hope that they continue his priorities!
From the very first, Trees For The Future has had solid ideas, listened intently to the people on the ground and has been very careful with their money.
I travelled to the Philippines to work restoring forested areas after a typhoon. TREES personnel were very helpful in organizing local labor and equipment to perform the work. We accomplished a great deal of work and helped the local people and schools.
I have always been in love with God's greatest gift to mankind "Mother Nature" and I came across this organization after searching for NGO's that is helping to make this world a better place to live for people who needs assistance and since trees are the most important resource, every effort put by this organization has had a great impact on many lives.
Looking at the progress they have made since they came in to existence is remarkable and I wish more people join and contribute in any way they can to Save the planet and leave a beautiful world for our future generations.
This organization is awesome. They have provided aid to dozens of countries around the world. Not only has this company planted over 60 million trees but have done so at an extremely low cost of less than 10 cents a tree. Other companies charge a dollar or even more to get a tree in the ground. In addition to planting trees, Trees for the Future has been able to provide incomes and food for families by educating communities in sustainable agroforestry techniques. TREES has helped fortify soil, prevent erosion, filter drinking water, reintroduce biodiversity and provide forage and building materials on top of lots of other benefits to local people and the environment. Please help out this great organization; one dollar helps plant 10 trees!!!
Review from CharityNavigator
Want to respond to air pollution, desertification, climate change, soil degradation, erosion, excess carbon in the atmosphere, poor water quality, loss of habitat and many other problems? The solution is to plant trees. Trees for the Future helps people to do just that, and more. Agroforestry, biofuel production, efficient cook stoves are other benefits that Trees for the Future are helping people achieve.
Few people know that Trees For The Future is a 20 year old agro forestry NGO. Agro Forestry is a holistic way of planting trees within the context of sustainable development. Their website is full of content about what they do. I am involved with their work through a Corporate Sponsorship program that allows us to use Tree Planting Gifts as currency to reward and recognize individuals in corporations for their participation in various green initiatives.
