This is our company

Planet Loves Trees is a small size startup company based in Finland that is looking to grow with international partners and networks. 

Our vision and dream

To build a future where climate change is reversed and the planet is greened with the help from small businesses and local people cooperating. 

Our mission

To provide hope and change to a world challenged by warming climate, pollution and environmental disasters caused by human activities. 

We believe that in order to take action to change the world, we need to work with companies of all sizes that want to take responsibility and help saving the planet for our children and future generations. While we have found politics to be too slow, we wanted to find other ways to work with environmental and climate change problems. We believe that planting trees and restoring forests will help reversing climate change. On top of that trees and forests do so much more. They improve the local environment and climate. Forestation projects provide work for local communities. When the environment is strengthen by forests, humidity is created, therefor trees also help with water management. Trees prevent soil erosion and the better local climate will even help farmers increase their crops. Last but not least, biodiversity is strengthened and preserved by trees and forests!

That is why we founded Planet Loves Trees. We wanted to build a system and cooperation network that can change the world. And we wanted to show our children and families that it is possible. We currently have 500 000 trees waiting to be planted in Arusha, Tanzania. Join us today to change the future of our planet!

We are currently working with a tree planting project in Africa. The reason why we chose to start with the project in Tanzania is that we due to previous development aid projects, already had an existing network of people on this site. In the future we are planning to expand to other African countries and we are currently looking for suitable projects in both Finland and Sweden as well.
