Add your number of trees planted to the grand tally of trees being planted by congregations across the nation as part of Faith Climate Action Week.
Let’s joyfully plant and care for trees to show our love for one another and our common home. You can report trees here that you have planted at your home, at your congregation, or if you purchased trees to be planted elsewhere.
A $5 donation to IPL’s Carbon Covenant program will plant and protect trees in the Global South AND offset one ton of your carbon footprint for a year.
“When we plant trees, we plant the seeds of peace and seeds of hope.” Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize Winner
Hold a public tree planting ceremony on your congregational grounds or public space to make the moral call for climate action loud and clear by inviting local press to attend and cover your event. It’s a great photo op for local press!
Order trees for your planting ceremony from the Arbor Day Foundation – become a member for $10 and get 10 free trees suitable for your area and a generous discount on trees ordered, plus shipping free for orders over $60. It’s an easy way to get the trees delivered to your congregation and support a great organization.
