About Tree Planet

Tree Planet seeks impact by tackling two issues: Firstly, not enough trees are being planted to replace those lost every year, and secondly, the response of the stakeholder (civic society, corporations, NGOs and governments) is not coordinated. By proposing innovative win-win solutions so that all stakeholders enjoy added layers of incentives, Tree Planet purposes to combat climate change, desertification, donor fatigue and philanthropic inefficiencies.

Tree Planet’s business is comprised of the game business and the commerce business. The core of both businesses is to provide entertaining way of planting trees. The game business includes mobile applications and web games. Through the games, users nurture and cultivate virtual trees, which are then planted in an actual forest by the TreePlanet team. Within the games, there are certain in-game items that are required to nurture one's tree. These items display the logos of the companies that have sponsored this initiative to combat desertification, and the advertising fee is sent to NGOs who carry out the planting process. Thus, Tree Planet's service provides an innovative and greener way for corporations to communicate with consumers. Governments participate in this process by providing land. 

The commerce business offers local communities, corporations, governments and NGOs a channel to collaborate to save the planet. Currently, the products offered by Tree Planet are centered around the Star Forest project and other forests by corporate partners and citizen communities. The commerce business helps boosts the firm's visibility in the public eye by leveraging the awareness of celebrities and well-respected corporations.

Our mission cannot be accomplished without the support of our main partners and sponsors. To enhance our potential, we believe that networking with other companies seeking to make an impact would be of great help to us. 

The Change We Seek®

Tree Planet’s main mission is to create engaging means to plant the most trees in the world. Up to now, most efforts to plant trees were limited to campaigns which call out to people to help save the environment. However, Tree Planet offers an alternative way by inducing people to actively participate in planting trees. Making donations to NGOs or merely modifying daily habits to a greener action isn’t enough. To solve this, Tree Planet proposes a new solution to engage individuals that is both suitable for this generation and is highly effective in battling the mounting environmental problems around the world. Up until now, Tree Planet has planted more than 440,000 trees in 19 forests, located in 5 different countries. However, this is merely a small step for Tree Planet's mission to make Earth a greener planet.
