What We Do


Currently, we have tree-planting efforts in  Cameroon, Ethiopia,  Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda. We have helped plant trees in an incredible range of environments from coastal areas to mountains, restoring soil that had been unproductive for decades or even hundreds of years.


In previous years, on the islands of the Pacific, the combination of high tides and heavy rains brings great danger to the people of the coastal plains. We worked with local groups in Indonesia and the Philippines to restore tree cover to upland areas, so the land could absorb more water during storms and reduce the likelihood of flooding and mudslides. Other projects in India aimed to restore trees to both drought-stricken and flood-ridden sections.

Latin America

In previous years, we have planted trees in Haiti, BrazilHonduras, and Nicaragua. In 2011, Trees for the Future’s Haiti Program delivered three critical services – tree planting, agroforestry training, and technical assistance – to local farmers in three regions of the country: the Arcadine Coast, Chaine des Chaos, and Gonaives. In Honduras, Trees for the Future planted more than a million trees in conjunction with one of our local partners.
