Plant the Forest

a service restoring nature & fighting climate change
Plant the Forest is tackling the effects of the climate crisis by growing trees, restoring drylands and protecting biodiversity.

We work with volunteers and local people.

How it works?

Plant the Forest works as a crowdfunding platform, we’re collecting money from people and businesses for tree planting. We can plant one tree or several hectares, it’s up to you - 1 tree costs 1000 tenge.

After donation you’ll get a digital certificate that confirms your contribution to forest restoration. Make a contribution for yourself, your company or present it confirms your contribution to forest restoration. You can make it for yourself, your organization or present it as a gift to a loved one on a memorable date.

After the tree is planted we’ll send you a photo and GPS coordinates so you can check on it and share with friends.

Our project makes sure trees thrive so they can protect the environment for tomorrow.
