TOTAL TREES FUNDED TO DATE
This is a call to your heart. We know our world is in trouble and that the solutions exist within each of us. TreeSisters offers both inner and outer pathways to change. We can all plant trees to cool down our world, and we can also use this crisis to unearth the deepest gifts and courage of our soul.
"Based on over 20 years of working with 200 NGOs around the world, TreeSisters rates in the top 20% of the most emotionally fulfilling, relevant and inspiring organisations on the planet."
- Catriona MacGregor, Founder of Nature Quests and Resilient Forests
"Scientifically, practically, and emotionally, the work and purpose of TreeSisters is one of, if not the most, significant initiatives that can be undertaken by humankind to address the future of civilization. The world's greatest land-based stores of carbon reside between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn in the form of forests. Their restoration is critical to reverse climate change and create a humane and liveable future. Can women accomplish something that has failed governments and agencies for decades? I not only think so—I believe it may be the only way it can be accomplished.

"Becoming a TreeSister has been a miracle of deeper connections for me. This has involved connecting with other amazing women, with the wisdom of the trees, with my own body and my ancient roots... and the journey continues still. In this global circle of sisterhood I am finding more and more courage and ways to reach our Mother Earth, who so much needs our love these days."
- Reetamaria Palomaki, TreeSister member, Finland
"There is a growing realization that forests are an essential bridge to a climate safe future. We urgently need to protect our remaining primary forests, regenerate cleared forests and restore what is degraded – and we have to act now!"
- Cyril Kormos, Vice-President for Policy at the Wild Foundation, IUCN-WCPA Vice-Chair for World Heritage, member of Project Drawdown's scientific advisory board, and member of the TreeSisters advisory board
