About #PlantED

We are already experiencing impacts from climate change as a result of global warming, including deadly heat waves, extreme weather events, and threats to life on earth.

Planting trees is the one of the most effective ways to combat climate change.

#PlantED is a global tree planting initiative aiming to plant more than 1M trees by October 2019, as part of the Climate Action project

We aim to have participants in 100 countries. 



One acre of new forest can sequester about 2.5 tons of carbon annually.
