Tree Adoption

Have you ever heard the saying “prevention is better than cure”? We firmly believe in this and invite you to help maintain existing forests, for example by adopting standing trees, not only to plant new ones. Through our tree adoption program, you can donate and contribute to the costs of patrolling the forest to ensure that trees of at least 15 years old aren’t cut down. These larger trees are particularly important in protect water systems and producing oxygen.

Hutan Itu Indonesia has introduced tree adoptions to urban communities through several programs, including Kulari ke Hutan, which has taken place twice so far, in 2016 and 2017. In Kulari ke Hutan, each participant running 5 kilometer adopts one tree for a year, with money coming from sponsorship and matching funds. We also used the proceeds of Foresta Musika Concert ticket sales in 2017 to adopt trees. Click the program link to see the details!
