Why do we want to grow a How to Be Good Forest?


We have already destroyed half our area of rainforest. We need urgently to save the half that’s left.

Rainforests are the lungs of our planet – regulators of the Earth’s temperature and weather. Without them, the climate will drastically change and extreme weather events – from floods to fires – will become more common.

These habitats support 50% of the world’s animals and plants. It is estimated that over 1 million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction, many within decades. This is more than ever before in human history; many scientists are calling it the sixth mass extinction.

Reforestation can stabilise and nourish the soil, restore watersheds, revitalise dry springs and provide good quality water to large populations living downstream.


We have partnered with Tree Sisters to help rewild the areas in much need of restoration work and expand the wild areas on our planet.


TreeSisters is funding the restoration of environments, biodiversity and communities within eight major ecosystems around the world, through a diverse portfolio of vetted, trusted reforestation projects. Join us in making ecological restoration the new norm –
