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.

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 we established a greenhouse in Narsaq to propagate Greenlandic cuttings and seeds. In spring 2022 we started growing Greenland Trees locally, so that we can plant thousands of our home-grown trees each year.

We include locals and educate children during our activities whenever we can. For instance, we establish “tiny forests” in collaboration with local schools. A tiny forest is a small urban plot of land, densely planted with many different local species of trees, rich in biodiversity. And the perfect place to tell people about climate change and sustainability.
