The year of 2023 at a glance

New planters that joined us in 2023

This year (until November 21, 2023), our global community has submitted 221 new tree-planting reports, and together, 2,859,131 new trees and shrubs were planted and dedicated!

This brings us to a collective total of 4,509,631 trees and shrubs planted and dedicated, since the start of the Global Tree Initiative!

Eight new countries joined us this year, taking to a total of 67 countries!

This year, in collaboration with two of our international partners, we successfully ran two tree-planting campaigns, in which more than 26,500 trees were planted and dedicated!

We revamped our Education section, and this year, we published more than 10 educational articles.

Our blog, Whispers from the Woods, had more than 40 new blog articles published, and more than 40 new Success Stories were published, inspired by our global tree-planting community!

This magnificent impact would not have been possible without the kindness and generosity of you, our donors!

Your donations will further help us to:
– maintain our platform that connects tree-planters and resources globally,
create educational material to encourage planters to plant and grow their trees,
hire professional staff to maintain our platforms and to grow our global community,
create inspirational stories and content that motivates people to #PlantGrowSave!

Please support us, and help us to expand our global impact!
