Tree IS Planted
CISI will plant a tree for each student we have served. Let’s join hands and build hope.

Blessing of the Tree

Trees epitomize wisdom, resilience and growth. Talent is like a tree, deeply rooted and ever growing. It takes ten years to nurture a tree, but a hundred years to train a man. Our Tree IS Planted project hopes that the international students dig deep roots while their branches sway up into the sky. Let’s harness the power of trees through reforestation.

Hosting Biodiversity

Covering almost a third of the Earth’s surface, forests are home to 80% of animals and plants. Over 1.6 billion peoples’ livelihoods depend on forests. Yet, 420 million hectares have been lost since 1990. Our Tree IS Planted project aims to help the environment, benefit local communities and increase habitats for species of the world by planting trees.

Combating Climate Change

Forests act as “carbon sinks”, trapping and storing harmful greenhouse gas emissions. NASA estimates that tropical forests absorb 1.4 billion tonnes of CO2 every year, while a study in 2017 estimated that forests would absorb a third of the atmospheric carbon needed to keep global warming below 2°C by 2030. Want to beat the heat? Plant a tree with us.

Healing Powers of Trees

Just being among trees is good for our wellbeing. It’s impossible to ignore the peace and joy you get while walking through a calm, quiet forest. As minimal as two 40-minute sessions per week in the urban forest can help to prevent mild depression. Trees help reduce stress and anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature. Explore your urban forest for health.

One Trillion Trees

The World Economic Forum has launched an initiative to conserve, restore and grow 1 trillion trees to help mitigate climate change. Research has shown the importance of nature-based solutions, such as conservation, restoration and reforestation, in combating climate change and biodiversity loss. Protecting and restoring forests has never been more urgent.
