Where do you plant trees?

We partner with the best tree planting programs across the world. We aim to get the best value for money/environmental impact. Our main tree planting partner is in Tanzania, Africa.

Our tree planting partner is called Friends of Usambara society. This is from the email they sent me in 2019 when I first contacted them about planting trees:

"I have ready your mail with great interest, in deed the world needs more people like you to reforest the planet and help to slow global climate change. Thank you. We are all interested to plant trees with you for the better save of planet. For the past 5 years, FoU has been working with 4HMT and other stake holders on a large-scale tree planting project in the West Usambara Mountains of northern Tanzania. So far we've planted about 15 million trees, and FOU hopes to plant 20 million this year."
