About us

Mission

GROW MY TREE is an innovative climate-tech venture, born out of a need to save the planet and battle climate change through planting trees. Currently serving both B2C and B2B customers, we provide tree-planting solutions that are uncomplicated, transparent and affordable. We fulfill this by partnering with organizations in the Global South, where the ecological, economic and social impact is the highest.

This is us

This is us

And we love trees! Trees have a calming and balancing effect on us and they beautify our environment. And that's not all: trees provide a habitat for many animals, even in the cities that we live in. But you don't see their most remarkable property: trees bind CO2. And that makes them superheroes for us in the fight against global warming.

As a small but growing team, we all have personal stories that connect us to the topic of climate change, and so we approach the business with a high level of care, passion and optimism. We’d like to pass that same optimism onto individuals and businesses, making this a collaborative process. Together, we can all be part of a global green recovery!

And this is also us

Our work would not be possible without the dozens of amazing women and men doing the hard work on the ground! They are the ones taking care of the seedlings in the nurseries, preparing the sites, planting the trees and tracking the progress of the growing forests. Thanks to everybody involved!

Voices from the ground

People here love working in tree-planting. The work truly changes the communities and increases awareness for the importance of nature protection.

Being a farmer in India can be tough. Being able to diversify by introducing agroforestry items such as fruit trees changes the game and gives a new perspective.
