It takes a community to restore a forest
ITF was founded in 1922. We are tree planters, farmers, foresters, ITF members and supporters, community organisers, entrepreneurs, and teachers. We share a vision with many millions of people, of a world in which trees and forests flourish and their vital role in sustaining planetary and human well-being is valued. If we come together, we can realise this future.
We work every day to:
- plant trees and restore forests
- strengthen community and ecosystem resilience, and
- provide sustainable fuel, food and medicine for households and markets.
We make the greatest difference by supporting emerging community based groups to grow and become independent forest conservation organisations.
This way, we restore and conserve forests, and promote cultures of forest stewardship for generations.
