Founded by Canadian tree planters in 2008, Community Forests International exists today because of our amazing community of hardworking, tree planting supporters. Every spring, hundreds of professional tree planters from across Canada and around the world come together to plant trees and donate their earnings to fund local restoration, agroforestry, and more on Pemba and Zanzibar Islands.
One day a year we move beyond just planting trees, and work in solidarity with island communities to empower grassroots climate action. Braving black flies, heat, sleet, and snow, our generous network of professional “Pemba Planters’ donate the proceeds from the trees they plant to help others. As tree planters, we work hard for a living, and we reap the benefits — together, we help others do the same. Tuko Pamoja — We are together.
We believe in the power of trees. Pemban communities are building resilience, increasing food security, and restoring their forests — all while increasing their income from diversified agroforestry and permaculture systems. Canadian tree planters are donating their hard-earned wages to support this hopeful vision and you can match their generosity. 100% of all matching support goes directly to help small island communities plant trees, grow food, and increase their income. Save your back — get behind a tree planter!
