Frequently asked questions
Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions about for example our projects or planting trees.
For over 20 years, Trees for All has been devoted to creating more forests in the world. Our mission is to plant new forests worldwide and to restore existing forests. We plant trees in the Netherlands and abroad and raise people’s awareness of the importance of trees. In doing so, we aim for a broad impact. Not only do our sustainable forestry projects contribute to a better climate, but they also ensure more biodiversity and healthier living conditions. In this way, along with our donors and partners, we invest in a green and healthy planet for everyone.
The CBF monitors recognised charities. In the Netherlands, there are over 40,000 foundations registered as Public Benefit Organisations (ANBIs), but only 646 of them have a CBF certificate – one of which is Trees for All. The CBF checks that charities meet strict quality requirements, thus guaranteeing that your donation contributes to a better world.
We guarantee that your trees will be planted. We draw up contracts with our project partners, in which agreements are made about activities, output and impact. We follow our projects closely through reports, field visits and rigorous monitoring, and we check the quantity and quality of the planting. We communicate this information through newsletters, social media, updates and our annual report.
Trees for All sees sustainability as an important value. We believe in sustainability in everything we do. This applies to the projects and partners we support, but also to the organisation where we work together. We do all we can to plant and manage ‘our’ forests sustainably, so that future generations can also benefit from them. We aim for impactful projects and choose quality over quantity. Of course we aim to plant as many trees as possible, but we want to do so in a responsible way. We build up lasting partnerships, and thus guarantee our long-term involvement.
