HIES is partnered with

JUST ONE Tree

to combat climate change, together.

As a partner of JUST ONE Tree, every time a HIES member completes a job on the HIES portal, one tree will be planted by JUST ONE Tree.

Who is JUST ONE Tree?

JUST ONE Tree is a non-profit initiative removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reversing biodiversity loss through global reforestation. They plant trees in areas severely affected by deforestation to maximise the effect on reducing global warming. In the process they help to provide agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities.

JUST ONE Tree plant in Madagascar, Haiti, Kenya, Mozambique, Indonesia, Nepal and Zambia. The reason JUST ONE Tree plant in these areas is because scientific evidence highlights that planting forests nearer the equator has the greatest cooling effect on the planet.

But they don’t stop there. JUST ONE Tree concentrates on restoring the entire ecosystem by planting on land and in the oceans, and they also focus on helping to shape the next generation of planet-conscious thinkers by bringing environmental education into the classrooms with lesson plans and JUST ONE Tree Day.

How does it work?

As a partner of JUST ONE Tree, every time a HIES member completes a job on the HIES portal, one tree will be planted by JUST ONE Tree.

To plant the trees, JUST ONE Tree have teamed up with a network of reforestation partners in specific poverty stricken locations where they hire and train the local community members to plant the trees. The community members protect their new forests by watering, weeding, maintaining and monitoring the trees.

Together we make a difference.

Why are HIES supporting JUST ONE Tree?

Because we know climate change is happening and there is an urgency to make changes.

Because the problem is still solvable and we have a way to help.

Because together we make a difference.

Use a HIES member for your installation and once completed on the HIES portal, a tree will be planted!

In reality we all need to be doing more, integrating restoration and protection into our everyday lives. The majority of people WANT to do more but aren’t sure how. That’s where JUST ONE Tree comes in. Large-scale minimal participation makes an overwhelming impact.
