The Four Pillars of Tree Planting

At the Global Tree Initiative, we believe that planting trees is more than just sticking a tree sapling on the ground – the intention behind that action counts and it will influence the outcome!

When you find yourself on a tree-planting activity, consider the following steps:

Set the motivation
Stay aware
Dedicate your action
Be delightful

Planting a tree can be much more than the physical act of planting, and its impact can go well beyond carbon sequestration.
