100K Trees for Humanity is a Black led urban reforestation tree planting organization. We organize cities and communities to plant trees for climate and for public health.
We're planting the planet,
one tree at a time.!
WHO WE ARE
100K Trees for Humanity is a community led initiative to plant 100,000 trees and plants in carbon dioxide equivalent (C02e) in every urban city across America by 2030.
We organize cities and communities to plant trees for climate and for public health; to accelerate city climate action plan goals to be carbon net negative by 2030; to increase urban tree canopies to 40%; to sequester more carbon, provide cooling shade and cleaner air in our undertreed communities, and to increase natural habitat for wildlife for a more resilient planet.
WHAT WE DO
Planting 100K Trees-
Greening our Communities.
By 2030, our cities will be lush and verdant communities where we will have planted 100K individual trees, plants, mosses, grasses to become carbon net negative in greenhouse gas reductions, environmental mitigation, for increased environmental justice and overall public health.
To realize this, we will plant 1 new tree per capita resident in the every urban American city to increase the urban forestry load, restore our natural habitat, and assure the increase of carbon sequestration capacity to reach our 2030 carbon reduction goals.
Trees. We have secured arrangement for 10,000 trees for mass earth day plantings from Arbor Day Foundation to receive 10 trees for $10 in exchange for donor membership. Trees would be planted on residents' private land and can be planted on City public land. 100% of the trees purchases will be subsidized by residents' donations and our institutional and corporate partners.
Volunteers. We have secured volunteer arrangements with One Brick Foundation for a potential 10,000 volunteers. We also plan to raise Alamedan volunteers for this effort too to increase community engagement, ownership and stewardship in ongoing tree maintenance.
