1% for Trees

WHY WE DONATE

In the Pacific Northwest, we are blessed with abundant forests and water, but that is not the case around the globe. We want to help spread the beauty and life sustaining qualities of trees to areas of the world where deforestation has transformed beautiful landscapes into degraded, uninhabitable land.  By donating 1% of our photography sales to tree planting organizations, we are funding the planting of forest gardens that provide food, habitat for animals, and wood for fuel and construction and much more. They increase agricultural yields, improve water infiltration and aquifer recharge, and protect soils from wind and water erosion.  The trees planted also offset the carbon we use to power this website!

 
 

WHO WE DONATE TO

Currently, all of our donations go to Trees For The Future.  For every dollar we donate, they plant 10 trees. Since 1989, Trees for the Future (www.treesforthefuture.org) has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and country programs, they have empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.

Trees for the Future has helped 1 million people in thousands of communities in over 20 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America plant more than 80 million trees.
