Tree Funding
Guidance & Application 

Please note: Due to an increase of applications received, we will not be taking any new ones until further notice which is likely 2022.

TreeSisters provides funding for reforestation to non-governmental organisations and indigenous communities. Funding is available for projects in developing countries in the tropics. TreeSisters also funds projects held by, run by, or supporting indigenous and tribal people in the tropics - even when located in a developed country such as in French Guiana or in Australia. We prioritise the avoided deforestation and forest degradation of forest with high conservation values. This latter term entails: primary forests; old growth forests;
high conservation value forests (HCVs); intact forest landscapes (IFLs); high carbon storage forests.
