Introducing the Seed to Forest Alliance

The Seed to Forest Alliance will enable rapid scaling of native forest restoration around the globe. Our first challenge is to solve one of the most critical, yet overlooked bottlenecks in reforestation today:
seed supply.
Without seeds, we will not reach 1 trillion trees.

A more sustainable world

Call to Action

We’re calling on companies, foundations, philanthropists, NGOs, and academic institutions to become founding members of the Seed to Forest Alliance in the common pursuit of a more sustainable world. Founding members will support the establishment of a global seed solutions network through thought leadership, awareness building, and financial support of organizations driving forest restoration on the ground.
Together, we seek to enable 1,000 new forest creators across the globe with seed supply solutions, and training in collection and seed banking, by 2025.
The Alliance provides a platform to disseminate thought leadership and scientific understanding as well as to generate exposure for the critical need to support restorationists worldwide.
The Alliance offers semi-annual networking and collaboration opportunities to share results, best practices, and expertise.
