Trees For The Future works with community leaders in nearby villages. They planted over 115 million trees in dozens of countries
In the early 1970’s, Dave and Grace Deppner served as volunteers in the Philippines, where they witnessed the human tragedy brought on by illegal logging and unsustainable land management systems. The Deppners found a way to offer hope. They revitalized lands by providing farmers with tree seeds, technical training and on-site planning assistance.

After returning to the U.S. from their overseas assignments they continued what they had started, communicating by mail with the project leaders and providing seeds, information and training materials. On August 14, 1989, Trees for the Future was incorporated as a public charity. Since then Trees has planted over 115 million trees in dozens of countries and revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of soil while changing people’s lives forever.
To improve the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands.
The World lose trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute as our food systems destroy our ecosystems. Most of this degradation occurs in the developing tropics of Africa, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia where hundreds of millions of chronically-hungry, smallholder farming families use destructive and short-sighted agricultural practices that further degrade their communities trees, soil, water and biodiversity, making them even more likely to migrate and more vulnerable to the climate changes that lie ahead.
