TreeSisters is for everyone. TreeSisters has a particular focus on women as research shows that women face disproportionate impacts from climate change due to underlying socioeconomic, political, and legal barriers. TreeSisters want to empower more women into leadership positions, particularly concerning the environment, and only work with planting partners with a workforce that includes and values women.  Supporting and empowering women is vital in the fight against climate change. 

TreeSisters also work to support everyone, regardless of gender, to reconnect with nature. Connecting with nature is essential for us all to make the behavioural and social shift needed to reverse the devastating impacts of climate change and the overconsumption of our planet's precious materials. 

We currently run several social network sites to respond to our network where they are. You can find us across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. Feel free to join and get social connecting with groups, events and locally and globally. It's a space of celebration, wisdom, knowledge-sharing, and inspiration.

'Feminine Nature Based Leadership' is a term TreeSisters uses to describe the skills associated with the feminine, regardless of gender. By tapping into these skills, we can all (re)connect with nature and make the necessary shift to a restorer, not a consumer of our planet's precious materials.

'Re-wilding' is a term we use to describe rebalancing and reconnecting people worldwide with nature. This can be getting involved in a planting project, going for a walk or just sitting outdoors and appreciating nature in all its beauty. Studies have found that people with a high level of connection to nature enjoy better mental health and are more likely to act in environmentally friendly ways. We believe that to fully action the changes needed in society and stop climate change, we must first ensure that we balance ourselves to protect others.  

Thank you! Your time is a precious asset, and we are delighted to know that you would like to be considered to support our small team. Please visit our volunteer page and see if there is a position you are interested in today. 

TreeSisters equally values the support of everyone regardless of gender. There are many ways everyone can support our cause. You can donate to support our work. You can join one of our monthly meditations, where we guide you through aspects of nature to reconnect and unwind. You can listen to our guests' experiences on the Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth series, follow us on socials, share our message, and, most importantly, connect with nature wherever you are. Every small gesture helps.

TreeSisters supports more community-led projects with tree planting, restoration, education and women's empowerment embedded in the project design. Our impact reports and annual statements will report how your donations have been spent and what has been achieved. We will continue to be open and transparent in all that we do so you can be confident your contributions make the most impact across all of our work.

We plant trees to restore ecosystems and livelihoods whilst increasing protection against the extremes of climate change in multiple regions of the tropical forest belt. We do this in ways that recreate and restore natural forest ecosystems using indigenous species, fostering local knowledge and skills, and promoting women's participation. We strive to do it intelligently, appropriately, respectfully and successfully. You can find out more by visiting our Tree Strategy page.

We currently focus on the tropical forest belt between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. You can read further information about our geographic focus on the Tree Strategy page. 

We are always looking for projects that impact the local communities. Each project undergoes a strict due diligence process to ensure that it meets our needs and aligns with our approach. You can read more about the due diligence progress by visiting our Tree Strategy page. 

There are innovative and creative reforestation projects out there looking to simultaneously support multiple levels of human and ecological healing. We seek to partner with exemplary initiatives that fit our reforestation strategy. Read more about it on our Tree Strategy page.

When looking at an individual project, we follow a strict due diligence process which you can read about on our Tree Strategy page. 

Our planting partners report the number of trees they have planted against their planting commitment and receive quarterly payments.

Saplings require water for strong root growth; therefore, it depends on the right time to plant in each country. Here's some insight into the seasonal differences around the world. 

  • In Southern India, planting happens as soon as the rain comes, which is generally between October and February (often only December and January)
  • In Brazil, there are two wet phases for planting that occur between April-June or November and December.
  • There are also two wet phases in Kenya - October to December and March through June. These are when the saplings are handed out, and planting happens.
  • In Madagascar, the rainy season is long - from November to April, and the planting of mangrove propagules happens throughout this time.

The cost per tree varies widely between different reforestation projects. For more in-depth information, please see the Tree Prices page. 

TreeSisters works with dedicated planting partners that work directly with the local communities. We look to support projects where the local communities do the planting and help to reconvene and grow their forests.

TreeSisters select projects with rigorous accountability, high survival rates, considerate of climate instability, have replanting processes in place, and follow monitoring and reporting methods.
