We stand at a threshold where our behaviours are no longer sustainable for our ecology. Trees restore life in so many ways and tropical reforestation is one of our best solutions to climate change – providing up to 50% of the global warming solution over the next 50 crucial years, yet humanity is currently planting only half of what we cut globally. That’s why we’re inviting you to help us plant a billion trees a year and re-robe our planet in green. Our vision is of 2 million Treesisters standing together like a forest making this dream a reality.
Who We Are
TreeSisters is a global network of women who donate monthly to fund the restoration of our tropical forests as a collective expression of planetary care. Our goal is to make it as normal for everyone to give back to nature as it currently is to take nature for granted.
TreeSisters is an invitation to a new kind of feminine nature-based leadership and a felt sense of integrity about how we want to live in right relationship with nature. Our unique approach is based on the understanding that we need to reconnect to the natural world through the nature of our own bodies, so we can remember our sacred roles as restorers and protectors of Life.

She has been developing the ethos and principles, the team and organisational culture, the campaign strategy, the framework of the Maps and behaviour change materials.

About our Tree Planting Projects
Our generous network of treesisters are transforming both lives and landscapes in extraordinary ways. In October 2016 we successfully launched our “Million Trees per Year” campaign, where 2,300 women from 42 countries pledged to fund trees via monthly donations.
As of August 2017, TreeSisters have funded 1,031,705 trees in Kenya, Madagascar, Brazil and India. Our projects focus on restoring biodiverse tropical forests and ecosystems around the world, as well as helping communities, empowering women, and protecting the lives of critically endangered species.
