Who We Are
Trees4Trees™ is an activity of Yayasan Bumi Hijau Lestari, a non-profit foundation, established in Indonesia to empower local communities through partnership reforestation initiatives and related education programs.
The Foundation works with local partners to produce tree seedlings of high value species, which are distributed to local land owners free of charge. These local people are granted ownership with their commitment to plant and care for the trees. The communities also benefit from the technical guidance provided by the program on planting, good forestry practices and education on the economic benefits of a healthy environment. The locations of the trees planted are recorded by GPS and the plantings are monitored on a regular basis by the program.
Trees4Trees™ is funded by donations primarily from responsible manufacturers and distributors of wood products and other industries. Donations are collected from the participants to fund the replacement of wood consumed in the production of their products. Trees4Trees is also funded by company sponsorships and individual donations.
Trees4Trees’ mission includes engaging school teachers and students in environmental education to explain the importance of caring for our environment and how planting trees can help to improve their lives.
