Why plant trees with GROW MY TREE?

At GROW MY TREE, the planting of every single tree is certified. This serves absolute transparencyso that you can be 100% sure that your trees are actually being planted. This process is a crucial part of our GROW MY TREE methodology and is implemented together with the local agricultural cooperatives. The following is also included in your tree package:

  • Building the nursery & raising the seedlings
  • Distribution of the plants to the farmers
  • Spreading the plants
  • Financing the farmers until the trees bear the first fruits
  • Agroforestry training for farmers in cooperation with local research institutes
  • Compensation for stock shortages during the first few years when the rate of dead plants is higher
  • 5% tree surplus by planting additional trees - we too want to make a contribution from our own resources: for every 22nd tree planted, we plant an additional tree.
  • Annual spot checks in the project areas to check the survival and health of the trees
  • Guaranteed tree care for at least 10 years

Where and how are the trees planted?

Planting a tree with GROW MY TREE means financially supporting small farmers by planting a tree. We would like to explain to you exactly how it works:

  • The trees are being planted in Nepal and Madagascar.
  • The effect of planting a tree for the compensation of CO2 emissions and climate protection is given worldwideregardless of where emissions are caused and emitted.
  • In Nurseries the trees are initially sown and raised to small plants.
  • The Seedlings are then distributed to the farmerswho care for the plants and can also generate their income from them.
  • The villages protect their new forests in their own interest.
  • The sustainability of every individual project is very important to us.

FAIR - What we pay special attention to in our projects

In our reforestation projects, we attach great importance to the content of the projects and the local social conditions. We reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests by helping local villagers plant trees. This is important to us:

  • Strengthening the local population through active cooperation with smallholders and agricultural cooperatives on site.
  • Local villagers are hired and trained to plant trees.
  • The farmers can benefit from the yields of the trees in the long term and earn a living by themselves.
  • Cultural traditions and needs of local communities are strictly taken into account. 
  • The planted trees belong to the farmers and not GROW MY TREE.
  • Only exclusively native tree species will be planted to protect the local flora and fauna.

Why plant trees?

In Germany, our consumption, diet, travel and energy consumption cause approx. 9,600 kg CO2 per year *. We cannot completely cut down our CO2 emissions. We therefore have to ensure that our CO2 disappears from the air again.

Trees are a natural miracle because they absorb CO2 from the air and use it as an energy supplier for wood, roots, leaves or needles. A tree can convert approx. 22kg CO2 * to oxygenper year through photosynthesis.

If everyone were to plant as many trees as they emit CO2, the CO2-related climate change could be halted by 100%. If we get closer to the goal of planting 440 trees per capita, we can manage to neutralize our CO2 emissions for life.

The cause of our greenhouse gas emissions

Over the half of German citizens think that the Goal of greenhouse gas neutrality i very important. Each individual contributes to CO2 emissions in Germany and around the world and at the same time can reduce annual per capita emissions. It is therefore important to understand where we can make a difference.

Especially consumption and travel behavior have a major impact, as well as the choice of transportation on the way to work or for going shopping. *

By planting 440 trees, you can neutralize your entire CO2 consumption permanently*. You can start small and invest bit by bit or plant 440 trees straight away.
