TreeSisters: Women join forces to help to reforest the planet

TreeSisters is a network of women planting over two million trees in the tropics every year.

Committed to the restoration of forests and the rebalancing of humanity’s relationship with the natural world, TreeSisters fund the restoration of tropical forests as a collective expression of planetary care. As a feminine leadership and tropical reforestation organisation, TreeSisters exist “to call forth the brilliance and generosity of women everywhere and channel it towards the trees”.

TreeSisters offers personal growth tools and programs designed to support women in unleashing their unique leadership and generosity in service to global reforestation efforts.

To date, TreeSisters and their network have planted 2,300,000 trees across eight regions – restoring forest corridors in Brazil, replenishing the watershed of Mount Kenya, rescuing agricultural lands in India, and reforesting cleared and burnt lands in Nepal. The support provided by TreeSisters worldwide has also helped to replenish the forest and watershed of Mount Kenya, protecting the last 250 most endangered gorillas in Africa, and by restoring mangrove and dry deciduous forests in Madagascar this in turn has restored the habitat of the country’s most endangered Lemurs.

TreeSisters say: “The Feminine Principle is the receptive, relational, intuitive, instinctual, connected, feeling side of ourselves that knows itself as part of nature. This radically undervalued and suppressed side of us is our gateway to nature’s intelligence, solutions and ways of being that will seek to serve life as a norm. Whilst this consciousness resides in everyone, women are uniquely wired to feel and follow natural law through the ebb and flow of our own bodies.

“Women are naturally powerful and we know it – especially when we are together. TreeSisters is a place where women are exploring how to tap the depths of our knowing, how to create powerful togetherness, how to belong and to feel ourselves as part of life, discovering our truth and giving directly to nature herself.

“Our goal is to make it as normal for everyone to give back to nature as it currently is to take nature for granted.”

Last month, TreeSisters co-hosted their first international women’s festival, bringing together committed treesisters and partners to celebrate their love for empowering the feminine and living world.
