With Treedom you finance farmers who want to plant trees, supporting their work in the early years, when trees are not yet productive. Treedom provides farmers with know-how and technical support for planting and managing trees.
Treedom directly finances small agroforestry projects throughout the territory. The philosophy is to realize sustainable ecosystems and allow thousands of farmers to support the initial costs of planting new trees, ensuring food autonomy and income opportunities over time.
Since its foundation in Italy in 2010, Treedom has planted almost 2 million trees across 17 countries. All of their trees are planted directly by local farmers and bring environmental, social, and financial benefits to their communities.
People who come and work with us do so because they want to put their talent to work to serve a cause. We're a team, we're horizontal and we're also a little crazy.
To cultivate the passion of our team, and put it to work for the good of our project, we welcome proposals, reward new ideas, and support personalised training programmes. And it doesn't matter whether it's a course on how to build futuristic nurseries or on how to do content marketing: it's all equally important to us.
Thanks to its business model, in 2014 Treedom became part of the Certified B Corporations, a network of companies that stand out for high environmental and social performance.
The realization of small agroforestry systems allows us to make precise choices in relation to the specific characteristics and needs of each project area. The tree species planted are native or respect the biodiversity of the different territories. The agroforestry practice also integrates the planting of trees in an agricultural system, favoring the virtuous interaction between the different species and a sustainable use of resources and land. Finally, all trees absorb CO2 in the course of their growth, naturally generating a benefit for the entire planet
Treedom finances projects in rural communities in the south of the world and also carries out projects with a strong social value in Italy. The first step is the training and financing of the communities involved in the projects, obtaining extraordinary results in terms of their own empowerment. The trees and their fruits belong to the farmers, allowing them to diversify and supplement their income and in some cases to launch micro-entrepreneurship initiatives. Financing the planting of new trees with Treedom serves to support the trees' care in the first years of their life, when they are not yet productive in terms of fruit.
