A tree will be planted for every order placed with our chosen charity, One Tree Planted, that we have partnered with.
Our chosen destination where your tree will be planted is Kenya Kijabe Forest in Africa. This forest was once dominated by trees. The forest is only about 5,000 hectares, but a community of almost 200,000 people depend on it for water, wood, and agriculture. Planting trees here will help protect this vital ecosystem, promote environmental education, and foster sustainable livelihoods through seed collection and ecotourism.
