Helping people plant and maintain one trillion trees.

 

ABOUT NEUTREELIZE

Climate change is threatening our cities and our planet - atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are the highest they’ve been in 3 million years, causing rising sea levels, extreme weather events and extinction.

Restoring nature will help stop the effects of climate change​ - trees capture and store carbon, taking CO2 out of the atmosphere. Planting trees is a cost efficient way to restore our planet.

But fighting climate change is more than just planting trees. Securing funding, tree survival, and coordination about what's happening where is also needed.

NeuTreeLize helps communities secure funds to not only plant trees, but ensure their long-term survival. NeuTreeLize empowers communities to learn and take charge of the restoration projects that work for them.

NeuTreeLize connects funders with communities so trees can get all the mulch, water, and support they need. Funders can see their actions grow and thrive, literally. 

NeuTreeLize enables forestry departments to see all the trees sprouting and growing around their country, in one place. Goal tracking has never been easier.

 

CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS

NeuTreeLize is currently:

  • Securing partnerships with like-minded organisations in Africa, specifically community led restoration projects in Zimbabwe and Kenya 

  • Looking to grow our team and develop the app further for pilot testing and on-the-ground implementation

NeuTreeLize has pivoted since 2019! In the past, we focused on offsetting air travel by raising funds for tree planting and connecting travelers to tree planting volunteer opportunities. We have since learned that reforestation requires more than just planting trees and have pivoted to reflect this learning. 

 

Our past achievements include:
