We Plant Trees is a philanthropic enterprise supporting environmental stewardship by providing and planting native trees regionally. This 501(c)3 charity organization is headquartered in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and was founded in June 2019 by father and son team Doug and Erik Davis.
The organization’s aim is to combat the buildup of carbon dioxide through carbon sequestration and to assist insect pollinators like honey bees to provide for a healthier, more sustainable environment.
Through education, community service, tree planting, and collective work effort, our mission is to inspire others and work to cultivate a better world for our children that counters world trends such as global warming. We will work to help create a future that considers and incorporates sustainable environmental practices into one’s everyday life.
One of the benefits of these tree plantings is they will provide a rewarding environment of forest solitude and wildlife support.
More importantly, though, it's the effort to provide carbon sequestration to improve our ecosystem. As the trees grow and lock in the carbon, they help reverse the increasing CO₂ content around them, and they serve as carbon fixing organisms that provide and enhance the atmosphere with increased oxygen. Simultaneously, these actions will help support the pollinators which are essential to the fertilization of our plants and subsequently our sustenance. We will continue increasing the green canopy of our country with the support of our communities.
Our ultimate goal is to educate the populace through community service and promote planting as many trees as possible, with each tree growing and sequestering carbon. Together, we can help make the world a better place for us and for the generations to follow!
