Reforesting Asia

What is Reforesting Asia?

Reforesting Asia is a campaign to raise US$10,000 to plant trees and restore forests in four Asian countries.

For every dollar donated, One Tree Planted will plant a tree in an area that needs it.

Humanity depends on forests for survival. Forests provide oxygen and food, regulate our water supply, and provide habitats for more than half of all species on land and jobs and resources for the global economy. But around the world, forests are under threat from wildfires and development-fuelled deforestation.

That is why EB Impact and Eco-Business have set a target to plant 10,000 trees in Asia as part of our climate change initiative, Changing Course.

With your help, we will plant native tree species in India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam to restore the forests and empower local communities.

For every dollar you donate, you'll be taking a small step towards bringing nature back.

Here's where your trees will land:

India

Fruit trees will be planted in Marora, Ghaghas in the eastern state of Odisha to support the underprivileged and to replace trees lost by Cyclone Fani

Planting season: May - September

Indonesia

Trees will be planted in Tanjung Puting National Park, Kalimantan, Borneo, home to orangutans, sun bears and 1,700 species of birds

Planting season: September - November

Philippines

Trees will be planted in Mt Matutum on the island of Mindanao to reforest areas badly impacted by illegal logging

Planting season: September - November

Vietnam

Native fruit trees and endangered timber species will be planted in the Pleiku, Gia Lai Province

Planting season: March - May

Every US$1 donation will mean one tree planted to mitigate climate change, support ecological restoration efforts and local communities.

When the project has been completed and the tree has been planted, you will receive an update from One Tree Planted.

This campaign has ended.

The EB Impact team would like to take this opportunity to thank our donors for making this campaign possible.


Update:

A total of 2,376 trees has been planted. The donations are allocated to a bamboo planting project in the Philippines, which is set to be completed by the end of October 2020. Stay tuned for the release of Reforesting Asia’s summary report.
