A call to action
Humanity urgently needs to reduce CO2 emissions. Our charitable organisation, run by scientists, strives to create climate awareness by planting trees there where climate change is most pronounced. We capture atmospheric CO2 by planting native tree species in southern Greenland where trees thrive today. We plant in existing plantations, in urban areas, and even in a degraded former military base. Support us and your trees will capture carbon for decades to come.
We include locals and educate children during our activities whenever we can. Together with the Greenlanders and helping hands from abroad, we’ve planted over 20.000 trees since 2014. All planted tree species are native to Greenland, but until 2021 had to be imported from Iceland, adding logistical complications, expenses, and carbon from shipping. That’s why in August 2021 we established a new greenhouse in Narsaq to propagate Greenlandic cuttings and seeds. In spring 2022 we will start growing Greenland Trees in Greenland, followed by a late-summer planting campaign for the fastest growing species. After 2022 we aim to plant thousands of our home-grown trees each year.
