The Green Branch was born out of the strong desire to enact change. Founded in 2020, we strive to not only reforest degraded lands but to make them bounce back by planting biodiverse, native trees in combination with commercial species. We believe that by restoring degraded lands and rebuilding ecosystems, we can do our part in mending the relationship with the Earth and all its inhabitants. Check out the timeline below to learn about our successes and milestones so far.
