Our Mission Statement
To support the Trillion Tree Initiative as launched on January 23rd, 2020 in Davos, Switzerland at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, which stated purpose is:
“To grow, restore and conserve 1 trillion trees across the world by 2030. The global initiative is aimed at restoring biodiversity and help fight climate change while uniting governments, non-governmental organizations, businesses and individuals in mass-scale nature restoration. These Nature-based solutions–locking-up carbon in the world’s forests, grasslands and wetlands – can provide up to one-third of the emissions reductions required by 2030 to meet the Paris Agreement targets.“ The President announced at the meeting, on January 22, 2020, that the United States of America will join the one trillion trees initiative, a day ahead of its official launch.
Trillion Tree Corps’ Plan
- Create a “Forestry” division that identifies, sources funding, and implements projects in the U.S. and it’s territories that will plant indigenous trees, restore and revive the biosphere, and restore or create facilities to help maintain the area and promote local, regional and nationwide education and support of the project. Key areas of emphasis: Urban corridors, National Forests and Parks, Native American Reservations.
- Create a “Trillion Tree Tours” division that supports our Forestry division by creating, planning, promoting , and hosting quarterly tours to our projects in the U.S. and beyond. Visit and support projects outside of our company, both domestic and internationally, that are involved with Trillion Tree Initiative. Provide public access to visiting, enjoying, and planting trees; while learning about the Trillion Tree Initiative and conservation. Partner with Veterans’ organizations to help Veterans deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), retraining, and/or re-employment.
- Create a third “Education” division that informs the public on all aspect of the initiative, as well as our projects, tours, and programs; and serve as the home of our “Eco Scouts” program – designed to get young Americans involved with our Re-forestation efforts.
- Create 5 distinct branches of our Corps to support our above the employment of displaced Americans. Eco Warriors for Veterans, Eco Rangers for high school graduates and people desiring a career change into Forestry, Eco Braves for Native Americans, Weekend Warriors for concerned citizens with limited time, and Eco Scouts for America’s youth.
