2020 Reforestation Round-up

By 24. December 2020October 13th, 2021News Home

Celebrating you and all the life you are helping to restore!

Let’s end 2020 on a high and remember some of the milestones from the year. In the interest of looking forward to all the trees to come, we’re also thinking about the challenges for 2021 and how we’ll be can overcome these together!

30,000 Trees planted…

…through November and December at Fazenda Santa Fé. These are the first seedlings of our first million trees! With 76,000 trees planted in our pilot phase, over 100,00 trees have now been planted. With 970,000 more to come next year! 

Our first ever webinar!

2020 meant finding new ways to keep you updated on what we’ve been up to. In September, Together with the lead researcher of the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor Impact Study, Andrea Luchessi, and expert panelists from our Brazilian Advisory Board, we discussed how large-scale restoration can be a part of Brazil’s sustainable future.

As our planting work expands, so does our team…

This year we welcomed Carlos Willyan, Piet-Hein, and Carol to our core team, not to mention our amazing planting team which grows year upon year. Next year we’ll need an additional 300 team members in the field to complete the planting of the first million trees!

2020: the year of partnership!

So many new and renewed partnerships have been formed this year. In such uncertain times, this has been an amazing testament to our sponsors’ commitment to preserving our planet. To name just a few of our amazing partners from 2020…

A couple of our highlights with the partners supporting the planting of our first million trees, Movida Car Rental and One Tree Planted…

Joining forces with One Tree Planted and being part of their campaign with Arsenal’s Héctor Bellerín

In June this year, we partnered with One Tree Planted and we were matched to plant the trees from Héctor Bellerín’s campaign to donate 3,000 trees for every Arsenal win! Along with private contributions, 58,617 trees were raised!

Movida and actor Cássio Reis visited the project…

…showcasing the work going on, the commitment of our team, and the impact of Movida’s carbon-free initiative, in this inspiring video…

…Not to forget the heroes of our project, our partner farmers!

Our local landowner community is growing and making this reforestation possible by working with us to restore their degraded land.

Thank you so much for all of your support through 2020 and we invite you to join us to continue to bring more life and hope in 2021.

Warmest wishes,

The BJF Team
