We are a socially beneficial business, not a non-profit organization. Unlike Charities that are not accustomed to thinking of their beneficiaries as "customers", and rely on government foregoing tax revenues (which could be spent for other essential purposes), Grow-Trees.com will continually innovate to satisfy private needs for which individuals and companies will be willing to pay, while doing social good.
Different people may prefer to plant trees for different reasons. Some people may prefer to plant trees to protect wildlife habitats and restore forests, others to green holy environments and others to help baar rural communities. Our different projects allow you to choose the cause and location where you want your tree to be planted.
We allow you to choose a project, but we leave the specie of tree to our tree planting partners who have years of local experience and determine what specie is best suited to the agro-climatic conditions and the needs of the local communities and fauna.
Given the scale on which we plant, you will appreciate that is not possible to link an individual to a tree.
You will appreciate that trees are planted only on government or community land so they can benefit the maximum number of people. We do not plant on private land or transfer ownership of a tree. Neither does Grow-Trees own the trees. The tree belongs to the community which benefits from its planting. Your gift of a tree is a gift to society and a gift to the planet.
Our planting partners have substantial experience in assuring tree survival and many have won awards for their accomplishments. Many of our planting partners plant a new tree for every tree that does not survive. Additionally, our planting partners have experience that rootstock regeneration leads to many more trees growing in areas where trees are planted.
We felicitate members in different ways. Plant 1-99 trees to become a Tree Champion. Plant 100-299 trees to become a Tree Guardian. Plant 300-499 trees to become a Tree Saviour. Plant more than 500 trees to become a Tree Knight.
We are not able as yet to facilitate users to volunteer to help plant trees in our projects, but hope to incorporate this soon. In the meanwhile, you can follow us on Facebook and on Twitter and help us spread awareness.

Trees help restore groundwater, improve catchment areas of water bodies, protect and rebuild soils, restore wildlife habitats, cool and clean the air. Trees allow the natural regeneration of flora. Trees provide fruit and shade to poor rural communities. Trees also remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping in the fight against global warming.
