The impact of treebytree

Every tree we bring back has a significant impact on the environment during its lifetime.

The trees brought back provide fruit and medicine for communities, food and shelter for wildlife, refertilize the soil, store C0₂, restore the water balance and so much more. Truly boosting biodiversity and accelerating the regeneration of nature. So that together we bring back 1 billion trees before 2050 and help restore our planet’s ecosystems. 


CO₂ Reduction


Trees capture carbon and emit oxygen. They are the lungs of the Earth. By gifting trees, you contribute directly to this effect of CO₂ capturing. The estimated amount of CO₂ sequestered per tree over twenty years is approximately 240kg.

Water retention

Trees reduce topsoil erosion by catching precipitation with their leaf canopies. This slows down the water runoff which in turn ensures that water can seep into the soil and replenish groundwater supplies. On an estimated average of 1371 liters per tree, per year.

Families helped

Bringing back vegetation has a positive effect on local communities and their livelihoods. Farmers benefit from the positive effects of recovering the trees on their farms, including healthier soil, better yield and less vulnerability to drought. This contributes to better food security and a higher income.



By bringing back vegetation and restoring ecosystems, we improve the living environment for many different animal and plant species. With more water and food availability, we see an increase in biodiversity among plants, insects, birds and wildlife in the areas that have been regreened.
