The ability of forests to regenerate after land abandonment in human-modified landscapes relies on four basic mechanisms: seed rain, soil seed bank, seedling bank and resprouting from remaining plants. The Catalyst bundle is designed to reinvigorate the forest and encourage 'seed rain', by attracting seed-dispersing animals in the early stages of site recapture to increase the rate of natural forest succession. 
Seed dispersal across landscapes can be enhanced by establishing forest 'corridors' or ‘nuclei’ to increase linkages among forest fragments and encourage birds and animals to travel to areas they would otherwise avoid. The key attraction is the presence of fleshy-fruits for birds and animals, as well as flowers for insects, which means fruiting and budding species of tree are crucial for achieving this objective.
Without human intervention, forests can grow far and wide thanks to birds and animals carrying tree seeds. However, seed-dispersing animals are often reluctant to travel across open ground, and persistent deforestation has meant that there are an increasing number of gaps in areas that would otherwise be covered by natural forests. By strategically targeting these sites, conservationists can encourage seed-dispersing animals to return to the area, and restart the natural process of forest succession.
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!
