Love Trees is about giving as many children around the world as we can a tree of their own to plant. This program is an important climate change solution that educates and empowers children at the same time. By giving children local and native tree seedlings to plant they are being given an opportunity to get outside, to learn to plant a tree and to learn what it feels like to help make the world a better place.
Disaster relief that helps bring communities back to life.
The new Love Trees Post-Disaster ReLEAF tree-replanting and children’s environmental education campaign is a powerful way to bring life back to communities devastated by natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes.
With more and more extreme weather events, Love Trees has created a post disaster reLEAF program to help. Once basic services have been restored and homes have been rebuilt, communities, schools and children’s organizations can request trees in the months and years after a natural disaster. Love Trees may be a small organization but we have a lot of heart – and access to trees around the world. Love Trees is happy to partner with other disaster relief organizations to get trees to hard-hit areas.
Organizations in the disaster zone can request support from Love Trees to re-plant native trees and seedlings. Love Trees can send a team to help teachers plant trees with their students.
Trees can be requested to give to:
- children to take home and plant with their family
- teachers to plant with students around their schools
- disaster agencies on the ground in need of trees that will benefit children for example trees for parks, public lands, schools or trees for families.
“Keep up the good work. We at African Community Project thank you for your continuing support.The trees you have supported in the past are very happy living alongside the children they share this earth with.” – Garry Brooks, African Community Project, Zambia.
Love Trees has already planted thousands of trees and wishes by giving kids the skills to change the world. Since 2006 we have given school children from inner city schools in New York and Nairobi, to students in pine-beetle infested regions of Northern British Columbia to students in post-Hurricane Katrina Lafayette, Louisiana and many places in between a Love Tree of their own to plant, watch grow and learn that even kids have GREEN POWER – the power to make the world a better place.
