ABOUT US

Embracing Life through the Forest and the Feminine

TreeSisters is a global network of women who donate monthly to fund the restoration of our tropical forests as a collective expression of planetary care. As a feminine leadership and tropical reforestation organisation, we exist to call forth the brilliance and generosity of women everywhere and channel it towards the trees. Our goal is to make it as normal for everyone to give back to nature as it currently is to take nature for granted.

Billion-Trees-Module-Image-Jaguar3Launching our Journey to a Billion Trees a Year

This Autumn, TreeSisters are stepping forward with our most audacious invitation yet. We're starting our journey to a Billion trees a year (a goal that we will reach when 2 million treesisters have joined us) and we're launching it with a six week 'inner' campaign the likes of which has never been tried before. If you would like to go on a deep inner journey of self discovering and activation of your restorer consciousness then this journey is for you.

THE SCIENCE

We cannot live without rainforests

With 80% of our primary global forests gone, we need to sequester atmospheric carbon as fast as we can. Trees replenish groundwater and rivers, protect biodiversity, soil and livelihoods, and support healthy ocean temperatures. They represent one of the best solutions we have to escalating climate disruption.

Fast growing tropical trees sequester carbon three times faster than temperate trees, which is why we are currently planting in Brazil, Madagascar, Kenya, and India with expansion into at least four more countries in 2017.

Success Stories

"The money we receive from planting trees is promoting our families.
We are not all that poor anymore and we have improved our living standard...
Women never surrender. Even if there's money or not, the fact remains
that we are here to plant trees for the benefit of all."

~ AMASTACIA MJOKI MJAGI, TREE PLANTER, MT KENYA

Why our work matters

80% of old growth primary forests worldwide are gone...
58% of animals worldwide are gone...
82 countries out of 148 countries lying within the original forest zone have lost all their intact forest landscapes...
We have passed 440 ppm carbon in the atmosphere, well past maximum safe level... 

Each of us has an individual and collective responsibility to reforest our planet: to protect our one and only home and all that we know to be sacred. Strategic tree planting takes carbon out of the atmosphere and helps mitigate the impacts of climate change, and we are calling all women to stand with us. Together we can find our true power, strength, and unique expressions of feminine nature based leadership. We are the ones who can leave a better world for future generations.

We know in our hearts that there is hope if we stand together. Will you join us?

Please support our quantum leap

YOU'RE INVITED

Please support our quantum leap

This year TreeSisters is aiming to scale up by a factor of 12 from 1 million trees per year to 1 million trees per month. It's huge, it's the only scale of thinking that makes sense and it's our first major growth curve on the new path to a billion trees that we intend to achieve by the end of 2020.

To achieve this we need to bring in an additional $500K to grow team capacity, organisational infrastructure and launch the scale of campaign that has sufficient reach to call in a further 27,000 new monthly members. We are reaching out to everyone we know to ask for support to find those miraculous donors who can help us achieve our goal for the trees. Could you help us?

What people are saying about TreeSisters 


CATRIONA-MACGREGOR-circle"Based on over 20 years of working with 200 NGOs around the world, TreeSisters rates in the top 20% of the most emotionally fulfilling, relevant and inspiring organisations on the planet."

~ CATRIONA MACGREGOR, FOUNDER OF NATURE QUESTS AND RESILIENT FORESTS

 


  

Paul-Hawken-Circle"Scientifically, practically, and emotionally, the work and purpose of TreeSisters is one of, if not the most, significant initiatives that can be undertaken by humankind to address the future of civilization. The world's greatest land-based stores of carbon reside between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn in the form of forests. Their restoration is critical to reverse climate change and create a humane and liveable future. Can women accomplish something that has failed governments and agencies for decades? I not only think so—I believe it may be the only way it can be accomplished."

ReetaMaria-Circle"Becoming a TreeSister has been a miracle of deeper connections for me. This has involved connecting with other amazing women, with the wisdom of the trees, with my own body and my ancient roots... and the journey continues still. In this global circle of sisterhood I am finding more and more courage and ways to reach our Mother Earth, who so much needs our love these days."

~ REETAMARIA PALOMAKI, TREESISTER MEMBER, FINLAND
