Why we Global Trees Campaign:

Global tree species are under threat of extinction. And if they're lost, it will have dramatic effects both of their associated eco-systems and the wider world. Global Trees Campaign exist to protect the future of threatened tree species and we believe their work is vitally important for the benefit of communities and of global ecosystems. With inspiring projects to prioritise species and protect trees, we believe Global Trees Campaign are doing vitally important work to safeguard our futures.

What they say:

For over 300 million years, trees have evolved into a wide variety of styles and adapted to a range of habitats. And where we all depend on trees to provide us with oxygen, food and timber, many plants and animals depend on specific types for their survival. The Global Trees Campaign is a joint partnership between Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) with a focus on preventing the loss of endangered tree species. Habitat destruction and commercial logging are the With increased demand for trees, habitat destruction and commercial logging remain the biggest threats. Plus, with an ever warming climate, many species aren't able to survive in their natural habitats. And this is why GTC run a series of programmes to support the conservation of at-risk tree species. These include building capacity for tree conservation in Ethiopia, establishing a new generation of tree conservationists in Cuba and restoring East Africa's rarest trees through restoration.
