WELCOME TO ENDANGERED TREES
Endangered Trees is a non-profit and community-based organization in Surin (Thailand) with the aim of planting trees, creating micro-forests, reducing CO2, generating income for the local community and at the same time reduce illegal logging and save endangered tree species from extinction.
In the past 75 years, Thailand has lost 50% of its forest, from 60% of the total land surface in 1945 to about 30% in 2020. From deforestation and illegal trade with trees that are thousands of years old, many of the local tree species are on the brink of extinction.
According to the Department of Thai National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, there are 715 vulnerable, 207 endangered and 56 critically endangered species in Thailand. Among the fifty-six critically endangered species, 17 are trees.
Did you know that if every world citizen planted 80 additional trees it would offset the entire Co2 that the world is putting into the atmosphere?
You can plant your 80 trees with us.
SAVE TREES FROM EXTINCTION
Let us walk into the deep jungle for you, accompanied by rangers, to collect the seeds of the most endangered species. We plant them on our farm and label them with a hand-carved wooden plate.
STOP ILLEGAL LOGGING
Help Endangered Trees foundation to grow trees on commercially viable sites to reduce illegal logging.
REFILL YOUR ENERGY
Trees are energy superchargers. Do you live in a city, with concrete, noise, and cars around you? Take the chance to plant a tree with us that gives back the energy you need.
SUPPORT THE RURAL COMMUNITY
The money that is made with this foundation will be put back into the community. We cross-subsidize Baan Cha Niang School project. Any edible fruits from your trees will be shared with the local school to upgrade the kid's nutrition. On a regular basis, we organize tree planting projects for the schoolchildren.
The rarest trees we plant are labeled with a hand-carved wooden plate showing the tree species, the donor's name, the date of planting and if possible, the estimated number of species that are left in Thailand or around the world.
Our vulnerability index derives from the IUCN Red List, which was established in 1964. The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species has evolved to become the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungi, and plant species. The IUCN Red List is a critical indicator of the health of the world’s biodiversity.
