How it all started

We are a product of humanity's greatest worth, hope. We also believe that, as earth's most intelligent species, we should act to protect all life on earth. Sadly earth's devastation is also one of our own creations. And it's vital we correct our mistakes. It all began, when our founders selected one idea of a team member to plant 500 trees in the last quarter of 2015.

Where we are going

While expanding our community of members as well as the number of trees planted, we now understand that it is more about conservation of what is left than tree planting anew. Our vision now encompasses broader actions, going so far as to automate the Ministry of Environment and seek legal reforms to help combat illegal activities. We also have refined a sustainable land use policy for Sri Lanka, and earth.

How much does it cost?

Planting trees with volunteers is the most cost effective method to plant trees. There are a multitude of benefits other than cost which include stronger environmental advocacy from partipants, awareness creation, ethical & honest reporting etc. We also use modern equipment including Earth Augers to ensure we carry out tree planting activities efficiently while guaranteeing the best possible outcomes. Cost of each plant goes into the following budget lines.

  • Cost of Trees and their logistics
  • Event coordination & approval processing
  • Volunteer transport and sustenance
  • Land preparation and maintainance
  • 5% for organizations’ administration

Why volunteers matter

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Reforest Sri Lanka. We strongly believe that environmental conservation should always be led and carried out by volunteers. Well known international agencies have failed for decades at conservation because their goals are overshadowed by the need to earn more and more to saddle bag employee payments, travel budgets and unnecessary gatherings of bureaucrats at leading hotels. This is where you come in; yes, you are important because all of us are needed to be part of this change.

Ordering plants from Reforest Sri Lanka

We source saplings from rural communities and farmers as a means of support and encouragement of the local communities. While most organizations would set up their own nurseries, we have ensured the communities earn sustainable income by outsourcing our production needs.
