World Tree Trust provides funds for seedling nurseries, implements tree planting programmes and operates educational workshops in The UK, SE Asia and South America.
We fund seedling nurseries, implement tree planting programmes and operate educational workshops to highlight climate change, global warming and simple steps we can all take to reduce its impact, including tree planting.
In UK urban areas, we canvas local governmental and nongovernmental organisations to encourage urban tree planting and urban gardening.
In UK rural areas we encourage community tree planting on public land, work in partnership with landowners to provide protected woodlands and on occasions purchase land (where economic to do so) to plant trees.
In South America and SE Asia, our activities support communities in reforestation and afforestation and education on the benefits of trees and maintaining bio diversity.
Large scale tree planting brings greatest environmental benefits in The Tropical climates of SE Asia and South America. Many rural areas in these regions suffer from extreme poverty and tree planting activities assist communities by alleviating poverty and enhancing the environment
£100 can plant 100 trees in Southeast Asia or South America.
It is difficult for tree planting alone to replicate the biodiversity and complexity of a natural forest but we go to some lengths to achieve a balanced and diverse environment.
To promote the growth of native ecosystems, WTT advocate only indigenous trees be planted. Where essential to begin rebuilding desolate areas of land, we may on occasion plant tough, fast-growing native tree species. We seek to plant non-invasive trees that assist in the natural return of indigenous species to assist natural regeneration. Please support us.
