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 must tell us when your planting date is before April 14th. You can start planting between April 14th and June.
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
Your planting date can be any time after April 14th. Please inform us of your planting date before April 1st – we will not send you the seeds unless you do! Once you tell us when your planting date is, we will order the tree seedlings for you and send them to you a day before your specified planting date.
Step 3: Receive the seeds
Store them in a cool location.
Step 4: Plant!
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
