Fundraiser: One Tree Planted Is Reforesting the Forbidden Forest

One Tree Planted is an environmental charity on a global mission to reforest our planet, provide education on and awareness about the importance of trees in our ecosystems, and inspire engagement and action. The organization works in 80 countries around the world to implement impactful tree-planting projects that support the local community. In honor of the upcoming giving season, One Tree Planted is encouraging all Muggles, witches, and wizards to participate in a global fundraiser to plant trees in the Forbidden Forests across the UK. All trees will be planted in 2023 and 2024 and will establish community forests and restore degraded lands, with the goal of growing long-lasting and mature forests that will be home to wildlife and magical creations for years to come.

Participate in the fun by choosing your favorite Hogwarts House and planting trees, competing with the other Houses for who can plant the most before year-end. You will receive a donation receipt and a project report once your trees are planted.

In the wise words of Hufflepuff Gabriela Mistral, “Where there is a tree to plant, plant it yourself. Where there is an error to amend, amend it yourself. Where there is an effort that everyone avoids, do it yourself. Be you the one who removes the stone from the path.”
