When it comes to offsetting carbon, research has shown that size matters. By planting tree species that yield rapid biomass accumulation, the Backbone bundle is designed to maximise the forest's carbon sequestration results. The Backbone bundle is designed to plant species that grow quickly and store the largest amounts of carbon.  whilst simlutaneously creating a nurturing environment for other species.
Through photosynthesis, trees can inhale  carbon dioxide exhale oxygen. Research suggests that one large tree can provide a day’s oxygen for up to four people. In addition, trees store carbon dioxide in their fibers helping to clean the air and reduce the negative effects that this CO2 could have had on our environment. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, in one year a mature tree will absorb more than 48 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen in exchange.
Global carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and industry totaled 37 billion metric tons (GtCO₂) in 2022, sparking further fears about the impact of global warming. Planting trees is considered to be a critical part of the strategy for tackling climate change, but the UN FAO estimates that we lose approximately 10 million hectares - equivalent to 19 million football fields - of forest every single year, for purposes such as agriculture and logging. Reforestation initiatives are imperative to reverse these trends.
Reforestation is a science and an art!

Restore Forests in Southeast Asia


Every tree we plant will impact the surrounding ecosystem, and must be selected with great care. We work with our planting partners to ensure each species we plant will only provide benefits to the surrounding ecosystem.

In Latin America, we plant a range of tree species based on the intended impact of the project. In the High Andes, we plant polylepis trees, protecting water for millions of people. The trees and roots absorb glacial meltwater, slowing the water’s release into watersheds downstream.

Some of our Latin America projects, such as in Honduras, utilize hardwood tree species. Hardwood trees are carbon storage powerhouses. While hardwood trees tend to take longer to grow, their environmental impact is worth the wait.


Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and provide key ingredients for 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree! At One Tree Planted, we focus on the 6 Pillars of Reforestation. These pillars are the foundation of why planting trees is such a significant action to take.


One Tree Planted has planted trees in six global regions: North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and The Pacific. Every reforestation project has a unique impact on forests, communities, biodiversity, and the environment.Check out the incredible impact some of our past projects have made!
