About Eden Reforestation Projects

Eden Reforestation Projects is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that plants millions of trees every year on the behalf of donors, businesses, and foundations.

Our mission is to recreate healthy forest systems that restore hope, alleviate suffering, empower people, and build local economies in impoverished communities.

Our objective, which we hope to achieve by the year 2020, is to plant a minimum of 100 million trees each year and to offer hope through the employment of tens of thousands of people in countries where poverty is rampant.

By keeping our overhead costs low, we are now recognized as one of the most cost-effective reforestation projects on the planet. While our primary goal was to lift people out of extreme poverty, we have also become a model for environmental restoration and land management.
