One Tree PlantedImpact Through Philanthropy

What is One Tree Planted?

Greenwave Energy is dedicated to providing Californians with renewable energy options that move our country forward and lessen our collective impact on a stressed-out planet.

We seek like-minded partners, from consumers like you to energy suppliers and clean-energy advocates. Together we can make a difference.

Greenwave is proud to announce a partnership with One Tree Planted and its efforts to reforest our great state of California. Trees have immeasurable value for the health of our planet, of course, particularly in fighting climate change. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the air, store carbon in the trees and soil, and release oxygen into the atmosphere.

Beyond their “medicinal” value, trees add grace and beauty to our homes and communities. California is home to some of the greatest trees and forests in the world, and in many ways are a symbol of our great state.

As we bring our green-energy message to homes and businesses, we felt One Tree Plantedwas the perfect partner. Learn more about their mission and programs.

For every new customer of Greenwave Energy, we’ll donate $1 to One Tree Planted, specifically to reforest our home state. We’re proud to be their partners in this important endeavor.

New Greenwave Energy customers will directly contribute to One Tree Planted’s effort for their National Reforestation Efforts.

Reforestation Efforts

Reforestation is the natural or intentional restocking of existing forests and woodlands (forestation) that have been depleted, usually through deforestation, but also after clearcutting

Changed Communities

Though net loss of forest area has decreased substantially since 1990, the world is unlikely to achieve the target set forth in the United Nations Strategic Plan for Forests to increase forest area by 3 percent by 2030. While deforestation is taking place in some areas, new forests are being established through natural expansion or deliberate efforts in others. As a result, the net loss of forest area is less than the rate of deforestation and it too is decreasing: From 7.8 million hectares per year in the 1990s to 4.7 million hectares per year during 2010–2020. In absolute terms, the global forest area decreased by 178 million hectares between 1990 and 2020, which is an area about the size of Libya.
