There is a powerful solution to climate change: the radical reforestation of our planet
We wholeheartedly support Treesisters in their amazing ability to use the leadership of women to build communities of trees and people.
Join a global network rising as a force of Nature, on behalf of nature, on our journey towards planting a billion trees. 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 solution over the next 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 restore our global forest. Our vision is of 2 million treesisters standing together like a forest, making this dream a reality.
TreeSisters is a global network of women and men 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. Our Mission and Charitable Objectives Public Benefit TreeSisters is a UK registered charity (1149961) and a global social impact initiative focusing specifically on the role that women’s leadership can play in helping to accelerate global reforestation and the shift towards sustainable living for public benefit. It is an organisation exploring how to gather, inspire and empower women to step into their Nature-based feminine leadership as the means by which we bring balance back to the planet and respond collectively to climate change.
Tree sisters has five strategic objectives which are employed to achieve the charity’s aims and
objectives. These are to:
● Build a global network of treesisters who catalyze a movement of ecological restoration
● Inspire and support feminine leadership towards shifting consciousness
● Raise and channel funding into tropical reforestation and protection

● Become sector leaders in global reforestation and feminine leadership
