The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is a nonprofit charity dedicated to planting 18 billion edible, fruitful trees and plants to benefit the environment and all its inhabitants. Our primary goal is to plant trees that yield edible fruits, nuts, leaves, or roots—thus spreading life-sustaining ecological diversity throughout the world. While our ultimate vision is one of overall ecological harmony, incorporating a great number of elements for a self-sustaining world, we chose to name ourselves “The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation” to ensure that as our efforts continue, with the help of those who join us, we will be united in the goal to heal the planet and nourish future generations by planting fruit trees. 18 billion (with a "b") is quite a few trees, but the world is depleted now, so many more fruit trees are needed. We believe in thinking big and loving even more.
