The Pledge

leaf.png

We invite everyone to join the Tree Pledge! If we planted 1 Trillion trees, we could significantly reduce the negative impacts of Climate Change. We need everyone’s help to plant new trees and save existing trees. The only way this works is if everyone, from school children to multinational corporations commit whatever resources they have available to accelerate and scale the number of trees planted in our communities.

Ways to Participate

  • Make a financial contribution (goes directly to nonprofit partners)

  • Create a tree nursery for seedlings (we provide the kit)

  • Plant a Tree! (Most important! We will provide training.)

  • Organize tree planting days at your school, church, or office

  • Help educate your friends, family and peers

  • Collect tree data and images from your neighborhood to help save existing trees

  • Create a scholarship or sponsorship program so others can join the movement

  • Spread the word on social media

  • Volunteer your time (range of activities)

Our Mission

Empower individuals and communities across the United States to take local action to plant and protect hundreds of millions of trees by 2022.

 

The Plan

We work with a variety of nonprofit partners who will provide important information and activities that enable everyone to get involved in whatever way they can. We will help people understand the importance of planting native species or species that support native wildlife and planting drought-tolerant trees that do not require a lot of water, with content and information (such as a list of recommended species) based on their geo-location. What makes this campaign different from other pledges is our commitment to build an ecosystem of stakeholders who participate in a variety of meaningful ways (not only financially), from school age children to CEOs of corporations to policy makers and nonprofits.

We are creating a movement to plant and protect trees, starting in our local communities. We need your help to plant new trees and save existing trees. The only way this works is if everyone, from school children to multinational corporations commit whatever resources they have available to accelerate and scale the number of trees planted in our communities. Each person has a gift to contribute, whether it is organizing a tree planting day of service in your church, school, neighborhood, local park, or as an employee volunteer activity. Trees help all of us and they need our help!
