WHO ARE CLIMATE CHAMPIONS?
Climate Champions are people proving it’s possible to make a massive impact on the planet in a short amount of time. Climate Champions raise funds with friends to replant forests—ten thousand trees at a time–all over the world–to help restore Nature.
The Climate and its Climate Champions have partnered with over 30 tree-planting organizations around the globe who do the hard work of replanting and regrowing forests.
Mostly because it’s fun to restore Nature by raising funds with friends! Also—and this is key– without Nature, there is no healthy, living Earth. No plants. No animals. No us.
Scientists agree that the fastest way to help restore nature is to plant a trillion trees. The fastest way to do that is to replant forests around the world, ten thousand trees at a time. According to the Arbor Foundation, ten thousand trees can capture a half million pounds of CO2 each year—that’s like taking 50 cars off the road or not burning a quarter million pounds of coal.
Now. It’s time to move fast and grow trees.
Right now, The Climate’s tree planting partners are offering opportunities to replant forests in Europe: in France, Germany or Spain; in the USA in California, the Pacific Northwest or West Virginia; and to replant mangrove forests in Madagascar, each, ten thousand trees at a time.

British Columbia Reforestation Project
Feather River Watershed Reforestation Project
The “Fire Recovery in the Feather River Watershed” project aims to restore 4,343 acres of land that was burned during the 2021 Dixie Fire. This restoration of this Sierra mixed conifer forest will focus on planting trees native to the area in pre fire conditions. Reforestation would prioritize planting shade intolerant species such as Jeffrey pine (20%), ponderosa pine (20%), sugar pine (20%), Douglas fir (20%), and incense cedar (20%) to re-establish forest structure prior to the exclusion of ecologically beneficial fire.
With approximately 1.3 million acres of forests burned in the Feather River Watershed since 2020, 1TreePlanted is focusing on areas with a higher likelihood of success. Planting within this project area will be monitored and maintained by private land managers for a minimum of 75 years. This type of management will ensure that planted trees have the best likelihood of survival, and that plantations can be cultivated to ensure a well-stocked forest at densities that are less likely to carry a high intensity crown fire.
Reforestation will help restore habitats for wildlife species including the California Spotted owl, Northern Goshawk, Bald eagle, and Golden eagle.
Thanks for wanting to become a Climate Champion, but this campaign is now closed. However, another opportunity to become a Climate Champion will launch very soon.
If you want to be part of a small group of people taking massive action in a short amount of time, please leave us your email, and we promise to let you know when that’s about to begin.
