Plant Trees Now!

Plant trees now to create habitat for endangered animal species, fight climate change and support full-time jobs and incomes for local communities.

One Tree = Three good deeds – right at your finger tip!

Regardless of which tree you plant, rest assured we never create useless monocultures and always pay our workers a fair salary. Our goal is to create thriving, self-sufficient ecosystems as animal habitat. And that’s what we do.

 

Trees for the Seas

Plant mangrove trees in Madagascar and Indonesia and free the oceans from plastic.

Trees for the Seas are proof that trees not only benefit almost all land-based creatures, but also a large variety of aquatic animals.

Mangrove trees are ideal breeding grounds for crustaceans and small fish. These again serve as food for birds and bigger fish.

Furthermore, mangroves sequester a lot of climate-damaging carbon dioxide within the mud retained between their roots.

Bonus: In addition to every planted tree for the seas, we collect 1kg of plastic from the ocean.

Final price for one tree (no shipping costs or other surcharges):

16,95 

This is the final price, including nursing and a survival guarantee for at least three years, all taxes and fair salaries for everyone involved – no volunteer labor.

Trees for Tuskers

Plant acacia, figs, banana palms and many others as habitat and food sources for elephants in Africa and Asia.

Elephants are the world’s largest land animals. And they have a huge problem: Loss of habitat due to deforestation.

Create habitat for elephants both in Africa and Asia by planting trees for tuskers with Click A Tree.

We plant dozens of different tree species to create thriving, natural eco-systems which serve as habitat and food source for elephants.

Help these magnificent pachyderms to survive into the next century by giving them something to eat and a home to live in!

Final price for one tree (no shipping costs or other surcharges):

This is the final price, including nursing and a survival guarantee for at least three years, all taxes and fair salaries for everyone involved – no volunteer labor.

Trees for Entreepreneurs

Planting trees in Ghana feeds the local community and educates unemployed young people.

Trees for entreepreneurs is a unique project in Central Ghana’s Oti Region. The syntropic farming approach plants a plantation within a self-sustaining forest. This ensures food security and long-term income for the local community.

Dozens of tree species are planted here. Fruit-bearing trees such as bananas, cashews and mangoes grow between ‘forest’ trees such as mahogany, shea nut and baobab trees. This ensures a perfect symbiosis between the plants and maximizes crops and growth.

Bonus: Every planted tree also supports the local entrepreneurship school. Unemployed young people learn here how to build and run their own businesses to create a better life for themselves as well as for their families and communities.

Final price for one tree (no shipping costs or other surcharges):

21,49 

This is the final price, including nursing and a survival guarantee for at least three years, all taxes and fair salaries for everyone involved – no volunteer labor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's included in the prices for planting the trees?

All Click A Tree prices are "all-inclusive prices". That means we take care of everything: The bureaucracy and the permits. The planning of the wisest composition of tree species, the sourcing and sorting of the seeds, the careful planting in the tree nursery and the final planting and further nursing in the field.

Once planted, we guarantee the survival for the critical first years, and replant all trees that die within these years at no additional cost. Planting “one tree” with Click A Tree means “one surviving tree”.

In addition, all prices include a fair salary for everyone involved. We don’t work with volunteers because A) we want to create jobs, incomes and hence a better life for the local communities by planting trees, and B) because as long as these communities get paid to plant trees, they will also guard these trees vigilantly and protect them from being cut down again.

If you go sustainable, go holistically sustainable, and don’t expect volunteers to do the hard work.

Are there cheaper ways to plant trees?

Yes, yes there are. As with most things in life, there are cheap and there are expensive trees. The latter are harder to come back, need more intensive care and/or need longer to grow.

It also makes a difference whether you can 'use' the tree, e.g. to harvest fruit, or whether it's a 'forest' tree. The latter is great as animal habitat, but of course costs more to sustain, since the local community can't profit from selling its products.

At Click A Tree, we plant a diversified variety of all trees. That creates natural ecosystems, which on the one hand are the only way to create animal habitat, and on the other hand are a lot more resilient to natural catastrophes and climate change.

We make a plan how many cheap and how many expensive trees are needed, and then calculate an average cost. It's the only way to create a diverse, sustainable forest.

Another option to cut costs would be to work with volunteers instead of paying full-time salaries. But we opine that if we do go sustainable, it should be holistically sustainable, and that everyone involved should financially profit from their engagement. Don't you agree?

Do all planted trees survive?

Unfortunately not. Depending on the area and the local conditions, about 80-95% of all planted trees survive. However, we replant all the trees that do not survive the crucial first years, at no cost to you. When we talk about "we plant one tree for you", we always mean "one surviving tree".

I love your project and would like to promote it. Can I?

Awesome! You sure can! Please go right ahead, like our Facebook page, follow us on Instagram, share our website on social media and tell all your friends, family and co-workers about us. You can also print and distribute our cool poster.

In case you’d like to create a more in-depth review or story for a blog, newspaper article or other media outlet, please get in touch.

I know a cool hotel booking platform or other potential partner. What should I do?

Excellent, we’re always happy to explore the possibilities of new partnerships. The more partners we have, the more trees we can plant. Please get in touch!

Where are you planting trees?

With the help of our partners we plant trees all over the globe. And the more we grow, the more countries we can support, hence please spread the word!

In case you do know a reliable tree-planting team you believe we should support, don't hesitate to let us know. Thank you!

How much land area have you reforested?

Good question. One tree covers between 1sqm (1m x 1m) to 4sqm (2m x 2m), depending on the type of tree. That means that 10,000 trees cover between one and four hectares of land. One hectare is 100 x 100 meters, or 10,000sqm. Or, for a more visual comparison, one hectare is roughly one rugby field (1.008 ha). Now take a look at how many trees we have planted so far to get a better understanding of what we have already achieved together.

On the other hand, it will also become apparent that this is just the beginning, and there is still a lot left to do. Please help us by spreading the word! Tell your friends and family about Click A Tree - and don't forget to bring it up amongst work colleagues and towards your boss as well.

Do you offer volunteer positions?

Very good idea. Unfortunately, we don't have the means to offer volunteer positions. Also, we have found the local communities to take great pride in planting 'their' trees themselves, which encourages them to protect the trees more vigilantly. These communities earn a full-time living from planting and nursing these trees, and we would find it unfair to take that source of income away from them.

If you'd like to hear about all the good things your trees make possible, please sign up for our newsletter, and we'll keep you in the loop on the latest developments.

What is the best tree joke out there?

To be honest with you: We don't know. We haven't yet found that incredible tree joke that cracked us up with laughter.

But if you know one: Please don’t leaf us hanging, send us a message, wood you? We’re always keen to hear good jokes!

(If you came for a laugh: May we offer you the world's best elephant joke instead?)
