  • What do TreeSisters do?
    TreeSisters is a UK-registered social change and reforestation charity which has so far funded the ethical planting of over 27 million trees across 12 locations. We advocate for nature and work to tackle the root cause of climate change by educating and inspiring everyone on the importance of reconnecting and living in alignment with our natural environment.
  • How do I show my support for TreeSisters?
    All the work we do is made possible by the generosity of our donors. The most impactful way to support this work is by donating or fundraising. We appreciate times are hard and that not everyone may be in a position to donate or raise funds for our work. Talking to people about our mission and spreading the word can also make a big difference! We currently run several social network sites; you can find us across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. Feel free to join and get social!
  • Why is a connection to nature important?
    Studies have found that people with a high level of connection to nature are more likely to act in environmentally friendly ways. We believe connecting with and caring for nature is the first step needed to spark the changes needed in society to mitigate climate change. Reconnecting with nature could include getting involved in a planting project, going for a walk or just sitting outdoors and appreciating nature in all its beauty.
  • Is TreeSisters just for women?
    TreeSisters is for everyone. TreeSisters has a particular focus on women as research shows that women face disproportionate impacts from climate change due to underlying socioeconomic, political, and legal barriers. TreeSisters want to empower more women into leadership positions, particularly concerning the environment, and only work with planting partners with a workforce that includes and values women. Supporting and empowering women is vital in the fight against climate change. TreeSisters also work to support everyone, regardless of gender, to reconnect with nature. Connecting with nature is essential for us all to make the behavioural and social shift needed to reverse the devastating impacts of climate change and the overconsumption of our planet's precious materials.
  • Who is planting the trees?
    Depending on the project and location, TreeSisters provides funding and support to NGOs or directly to local community organisations. Either way, we aim to empower local communities, ensuring they have control and autonomy to restore their own lands.
  • When are the trees planted?
    Saplings require water for strong root growth; therefore, it depends on the right time to plant in each country. Here's some insight into the seasonal differences around the world. For example, in Brazil, there are two wet phases for planting that occur between April-June or November and December. While in Kenya the two phases are October to December and March through June. These are when the saplings are handed out, and planting happens. In Madagascar, the rainy season is long - from November to April, and the planting of mangrove propagules happens throughout this time.
  • Where does my donation go?
    TreeSisters supports more community-led projects with tree planting, restoration, and women's empowerment embedded in the project design. We also provide education and increase awareness around the rights of nature, integrating nature into business and other important topics. Our impact reports and annual statements will report how your donations have been spent and what has been achieved. We will continue to be open and transparent in all that we do so you can be confident your contributions make the most impact across all of our work.
  • Who do I contact if I have an issue with my donation?

  • I used to have a tree counter/online account/ TreeSisters fundraising page, where has it gone?
    From the 1st of November, 2022, we removed certain features, such as individual tree counters, online accounts and fundraising pages created through our website. We gave as much notice as possible and communicated these changes regularly through our newsletter and website. TreeSisters have always aimed to work at the most ethical level possible for all beings. These changes allow us to stand in more integrity alongside our strategic objectives, values, mission and vision. They align with our Green Cover strategy and Ethical Tree Growing Framework, our position on carbon and our move away from the monetisation of nature. This new approach aims to provide a better service to our supporters, beneficiaries and stakeholders, with more straightforward processes, fewer technical issues, and more tools and information to support you. They will provide a fuller understanding of the breadth of our work as we measure and report impacts in a more encompassing and accurate way.
  • What type of Business Partner am I?
    There are currently four types of business categories within TreeSisters. Business partnerships, Commercial Participators, Businesses that wish to fundraise in aid of TreeSisters and businesses that wish to donate through one-offs/recurring donations or volunteer to raise funds for TreeSisters without our instruction. Business partnerships are companies that have chosen to support a charity over and above the course of their everyday business, with a long-term (3-5 years) financial commitment above £25K. Commercial participators are any business that sells products or services and wants to donate a % or fixed amount to TreeSisters and promotes us as a beneficiary through linking sales of a product or service to donations. This is also known as 'sales fundraising'. An example of this looks like if you currently donate a tree per product or service you offer, such as hosting an event and adding a donation of trees to the tickets, allocating a % of the profits of a book. If you fall into this category, we now require you to set up an account with Work For Good. Don't worry this will only assist you and us in your support of TreeSisters. We go into a bit more detail about this below. Fundraising in aid of businesses. This is an organisation that has chosen to fundraise in aid of TreeSisters. This activity can be anything from holding a charity day to a bake sale, fun run, or challenging the employees in the organisation to clock up the walking miles; there are many ways you can fundraise for TreeSisters and take direct action to protect and reforest our world and commit to social change. The great thing about contributing in this way is all you have to do is set up a fundraiser on our new JustGiving platform. Here are some useful these resources to help you: How to create a fundraising page How to set up a page in memory of someone JustGiving’s Fundraising Hub In addition, see our fundraising pack (LINK?) and “in aid of” logo, which will provide you with tips, ideas and how-to's to fully support your fundraising efforts. Business donors are any organisation that wishes to donate through one-offs/recurring donations or volunteer to raise funds for TreeSisters without instruction from our side.
  • I'm a Commercial Participator. Who is Work for Good, and why have you partnered with them?
    Work for Good supports charities with the necessary legal agreements and helps businesses make fundraising a smooth and easy process. You can sign up to our TreeSisters Work for Good platform or learn more about how their Commercial Participator Agreement works here. You will still be connected to TreeSisters; you just need to announce that the legal agreement is through Work for Good on your website. As a small team trying to do the most good, this streamlining means so much for us in terms of time saved, time that we can instead dedicate to fulfilling our vision and mission. We are hugely appreciative of your support!
  • Can you explain more about Work for Good's fees?
    Like every tool, platform and software TreeSisters use to collect money, Work for Good charge a small fee. They do this to operate effectively and provide a service to our donors and us that without them, TreeSisters would have to put considerable time and resource into. It is free for charities and businesses to sign up, and there are no annual membership costs. They deduct 5% (excl VAT) when a donation is paid. There are no processing charges for donations paid by Bacs bank transfer. If a business pays a donation by credit/debit card, the donation will be subject to a charge by our payment processing provider of 1.4% + 20p. The fee (plus VAT) and any payment processing charges will be automatically deducted from the monthly payment Work for Good makes to TreeSisters. Work for Good help both parties remain legally compliant at minimum expense and allow our small team extra capacity to focus on the organisation's vision and mission. Win/win.
