Lead a Tree Planting Project

Lead a Tree Planting Event

Did you know that trees help fight climate change? Excess carbon dioxide (CO2) is building up in our atmosphere, contributing to climate change. Trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles.

Here’s How We’ll Help

We’ll provide you with the tree seeds needed for you to complete your plantings.

Here’s What You’ll Need to Do

You can begin planning anytime after January 4th, 2021. You can start planting between the months of April and June. We will send you the materials before April.

Step 1: Get permission to plant on a plot of land

If you’re a student group, you can try to negotiate with the administration at your school for a plot of land to plant in. Simply introduce your tree-planting project to them and ask if there is an area that your team can use. Alternatively, you could get in touch with your local parks and recreation organization and introduce your project to them – they may have land that you’re authorized to plant on. If you require assistance with this step, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your program manager!

Step 2: Organize a planting date and assemble a team of volunteers

Step 3: Receive the seeds

We will send you the tree seeds before April.

Step 4: Plant!

Once the flowers bloom in the spring and summer seasons, bees and butterflies will start visiting. You should water the plot twice a week until the seeds germinate (after that, you don’t need to worry about them too much). You can use this opportunity to educate your peers about the importance of pollinators.

Step 5: Record the number of trees planted and take pictures/videos

Share these with us as soon as possible – we’d love to share your amazing work and promote your cause!

Step 6: Care for the trees
