Trees for the Future is dedicated to improving the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands.

Millions of impoverished, smallholder farmers in the developing world use environmentally destructive farming methods to meet the needs of their families. These farmers are resource poor and they face significant risks in adopting new production techniques. This dilemma traps them in a cycle of poverty and promotes harmful land use practices that limit the potential of the land today and in the future.

We envision a world where farmers can leave a legacy of opportunity through sustainable farming and forestry practices while also using their land productively.
