A quarter of all tropical forests – about 500 million hectares – has been lost since 1950. That's 20 times the size of the UK. This loss has been driven by unsustainable demand for commodities such as timber, wood pulp, palm oil, soy, beef, rubber, cocoa, metals and oil. The health of forests that are still standing is further degraded by burning, fragmentation, and loss of ecologically critical species of wildlife.
We are fighting back! The Trillion Trees ReForest Fund is directly restoring forest at crucial sites, including three restoration projects in Africa in 2020. By donating to the ReForest Fund, you are supporting these projects.
Every tree we remove in East Lothian and Edinburgh we will donate £3.00 to assist planting programmes around the world.
