Plant 4 Pemba

Our Grassroots Tree Planting Movement

Founded by Canadian tree planters in 2008, Community Forests International exists today because of our amazing community of hardworking, tree planting donors. 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.



Pledge for Pemba

100% of all Plant 4 Pemba donations go directly to support our local partners. Braving black flies, heat, sleet, and snow, our elite group of Pemba pounder’s pledge trees to help others. One day a year we move beyond just planting trees, and work in solidarity with island communities to empower grassroots climate action.  As tree planters, we work hard for a living, and we reap the benefits — together we can 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 giving 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 fruit and feed their families. Save your back — get behind a tree planter!
