Plant 4 Pemba

Our Grassroots Tree Planting Movement

Founded and supported by Canadian tree planters since 2008, Community Forests International exists today because of our 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 across Pemba and Zanzibar Islands.

Take the Pledge

One day a year, tree planters shift their mindset from making money to making an impact. Together we strap on the bags and Plant 4 Pemba, giving what we can — a bag up, a half-day, or the whole thing — knowing we are planting to empower grassroots climate action.

As tree planters, you work hard for a living, and you reap the benefits — and now you can help others do the same. Take the pledge to Plant 4 Pemba 2021.
