    Why the world needs
    a trillion more trees!

    The world currently has three trillion trees and can host a trillion more. Trees are one of the most powerful tools that buy us time in the fight against the climate crisis. Only by restoring these forests, we will be able to keep temperature rise below 2°C.

    Mexican Reforestation Projects

    On the Yucatán Peninsula and the state of Mexico, we are planting trees to fight the climate crisis. Planting trees generates jobs, is good for biodiversity, and captures the greenhouse gas CO2. Trees buy us valuable time, which we need to use to reduce our CO2 emissions.
