Add your trees

Whether you’ve planted just a few trees at a school, hundreds in your community or thousands in a large scale project, tell us! Every single tree helps grow the count.


Apply for trees

Need more trees for your planting project? We’d love to help! Planters who have added trees to our count and who meet our high quality standards can apply for free trees from our marketplace. Please read this guide before you apply.


Get local support

Our Regional Advisors can give on the ground support to planters, whether you need help to get started or you want to talk about scaling up your existing project.


Monitor your trees

Monitoring the health of your trees is just as important as planting. Log-in to add monitoring data for trees you’ve added or received from Trees That Count.

  2. Apply for native trees from our marketplace. Find tips for your application here
  3. Tell us what’s great about your project and how many trees you need

  5. We approve the costs and usually pay your nursery direct
  6. You collect your trees from the nursery and get planting!
  7. You care for your trees and provide us with annual monitoring data (it’s super easy!)
