On a mission to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050

Tree-Nation is the largest reforestation platform that allows citizens and companies to plant trees all around the world.

We use technology to make tree planting easy. Since our beginning in 2006, over 590,000 users and more than 15,700 companies have planted more than 30 million trees using our platform. We are currently offering over 45 reforestation projects. Join us on our mission to reforest the world and fight climate change!

Our mission

Our mission is to reforest the world by planting trees because it's one of the most efficient solutions to fight climate change.

Thanks to our reforestation and conservation projects, we help restore forests, create jobs, support local communities, and protect biodiversity. 

Through the Tree-Nation platform, we aim to bring a technological solution to the problem of deforestation, responsible for about 20% of all climate change emissions.

We use technology to make tree planting easy, and provide support and solutions to citizens and companies to help them transition towards a sustainable future.

With 85% of all terrestrial species living in tropical forests, whose existences are intrinsically bound to the forests, their habitat, we care to restore and preserve the biodiversity to help avoid mass extinction.

Our story

Tree-Nation was founded in 2006 by Maxime Renaudin. From one single project in the driest and poorest country on earth, Niger, the organization quickly evolved to help local teams of planters around the world. 

To solve the funding problem, Tree-Nation invented the virtual tree, the online forest, and many other software tools in order to provide a unique technological solution aimed at breaking the distance between remote projects and their sponsors in developed countries.

It became an official partner of the UNEP in 2007 and is now an organization recognized internationally.

Who are we

Over the years, our team has grown and attracted lots of talented and dedicated people. We are all motivated by the same goal: to protect our planet, and help the collective effort to stop climate change.

Despite being registered in Belgium, our principal office and most of our team are based in sunny Barcelona, Spain. Other team members are also in Brazil, Netherlands and Kenya.
