The Story.

It all started, less than a year ago, by a group of young men from Regina Saskatchewan.  Born out of their commitment to the environment, they believed they could inspire a new group of consumer.  By planting ten trees and ensuring that all their clothing is produced responsibly (in Oregon) they allow each  customer to make a difference.

With several years of hands-on tree planting experience under their belts, Ten Tree does things right.  They ensures that all trees planted are among the local species that grow in the area and will not have an adverse effect on the local environment.  And their planting efforts are now in Canada, Haiti, Philippines, Zambia and Ethiopia, with new locations being added as this inspiring young company grows.

From their website:  “The beautiful landscape we know and love is fast disappearing.  At Ten Tree, we believe that we can inspire a new group of consumers to tackle the environmental issues we are now faced with.  By planting ten trees and ensuring that all our clothing is produced responsibly we allow each and every customer to make a difference.

Ten Tree ensures that all trees planted are among the local species that grow in the area and will not have an adverse effect on the local environment.  Whether this means planting sugar cane and moringa trees in Haiti to prevent sheet water erosion or the Juniper trees of Ethiopia, Ten Tree has ensured that with each site, the utmost care has been taken to plant local, sustainable species.  Because of the precautions taken, these trees will grow strong and healthy long into the future.

Tree planting is not an easy process.  In many locations, labor is difficult to come by, the native plant species are dying out, environmental conditions are harsh, and close care must be taken to ensure the survival of the trees.  Ten Tree employs experts in forestry and has partnered with several organizations that have local expertise in order to take part in some of the most innovative planting projects in the world.  These projects do not simply plant trees; they provide long-term employment, restore ailing eco-systems, support sustainable communities and provide the local population with independence”.
