Reforest is a for-profit social business dedicated to increasing the number of trees and forested area worldwide for conservation and nature preservation.

Reforest generates income by selling forest-friendly products and donating all of the profits to projects. We also encourage corporate partnerships as part of our CSR program.

Planting trees –Reforestation– is a relatively low cost and simple approach to mitigate local and/or global problems of natural habitat loss, and other issues such as aerial pollution, protection of water sources and more.

Our reforestation works worldwide, by donating profits to partner organisations.

We pool all this income and send the funds to our reforestation associate projects (“Projects”) at a time which is most appropriate to each individual project.

is focused in Central America and Mexico. Here there is extensive and accelerating loss of forests, yet trees grow well and are associated with diverse flora and fauna ecosystems. It is also relatively inexpensive to plant trees here -considering costs of materials and labour-. However, we are always interested to hear from reforestation projects and organisations worldwide.

Planting varies depending on the environment: typically trees are planted during the rainy season when the soil conditions are most hospitable for tree establishment (i.e. root growth). This approach increases survival rates in the first three years of tree growth.

Our “Associate Projects” are specially selected organisations and/or projects which allow Reforest to turn income into trees in the ground. We have been working with our present associate project: “Chico Mendes Reforestation Project”, since 2015.
