TURNING PLEDGES INTO ACTION: TRILLION TREES REFOREST FUND 2021 REPORT
The Trillion Trees ReForest Fund supports forest restoration across a portfolio of sites where our partners have long-term conservation programmes. Launched in 2020, we made our first grants in early 2021 and have just published our first report highlighting some of the successes already achieved.
Our projects focus on recovering and regrowing natural forests, but we take a landscape approach, using a wide range of methods and looking for opportunities to improve livelihoods and address the underlying drivers of deforestation. This ensures our efforts make a lasting contribution to reducing carbon in the atmosphere and preserving critical biodiversity.

The people behind our success
The work of Trillion Trees wouldn’t be anything without the dedication and enthusiasm of our local teams and partners. We recently ran a series of profiles with the Global Landscapes Forum’s Landscape News, which you can read below.
In March 2021, Trillion Trees released its first Impact Report, highlighting actions and impact since our beginning in 2016.
From working to connect 450,000 hectares of forest fragments to protect endangered species in Brazil's Atlantic Forest, to planting tens of thousands of indigenous tree seedlings to restore Mount Kenya's forest, Trillion Trees has gone from strength to strength in its first four years. Since 2016, Trillion Trees partners have been supporting the protection of more than 18.3 billion trees and the restoration of over 1.8 billion trees.
Trillion Trees was forged in 2016 to deliver a world where deforestation has ended. Through the combined strength of our organisations, we can speed up and scale up global efforts to protect and restore forests. Using our combined expertise, we're standing on the front line of forest protection and restoration in 60 countries, ready to make an even greater difference for people, climate and nature.
Real impact can be achieved, and with continued global investment in forest conservation we can all benefit from the services forests bring to fight the threats of climate change, biodiversity loss, and economic inequality.
