B’n’Tree plants trees for travelers because trees matter to travelers. Trees matter when you’re traveling overseas for business or leisure, or across the country for a music festival. When you travel for a family visit or on a hiking trip for the day, trees matter.
Let’s have a look at why travelers love trees and why we all should plant more of them. And, of course, how we can all do that.
Travelers Love Trees
It doesn’t matter if it’s a much-needed green city park, the smell of pine trees when you’re camping, lush rainforest for some adventure trekking or a fresh coconut on the beach under palm trees: travelers have a deep appreciation for trees.
Trees provide shade in the summer heat and provide protection when the rain starts pouring. They gift us with fresh local fruit when hunger is calling.
Can you imagine a beach without palm trees? A forest trail without forest? A camping trip without green?
We can’t. And that’s why we plant trees for travelers. Because travelers love trees.
But in addition to any selfish motives, trees do much more than just improving your travel experience.

Which Travelers Depend on Trees?
Every type of traveler depends on trees. In fact, it’s hard to think of a single trip where trees won’t bring some form of benefit for travelers.
Daydreaming about perfect white-sand beaches? Palm trees create the perfect, relaxing backdrop for beach lovers.
Travelers on city breaks will appreciate the green escape that trees in city parks provide in sometimes stuffy, crowded places.
Campers also enjoy what trees offer on their trip. They create a natural shelter and provide a home for the birds and their morning song.
That’s why we’re so diligently planting trees for travelers. As you know, whenever you travel, we plant a tree – for free!
And that travel doesn’t just have to be your big trip abroad. Day trips, weekend escapes or visiting family across the country all require travel bookings. It’s hard to find a reason not to plant free trees while you travel. Start every reservation with B’n’Tree and every time you travel, you’ll be one of the stars helping to reforest the planet.
Why Should Travelers Plant Trees?
There are so many reasons why travelers should plant trees. Here are our top three:
1. Protect the Environment
Traveler numbers are at a record high. This means that more people are exploring the planet than ever before. There’s more demand and along with that, there’s unfortunately more waste.
Sadly, deforestation is also at a record high. That being said, record traveler numbers and record deforestation are not linked in any way. Thankfully, there are no evil-twin-versions of B’n’Tree, offering to chop down a tree for every holiday booked!
As positive as always, at B’n’Tree we believe there’s an opportunity to reverse this misleading statistic. You can now travel more sustainably than ever before. If, like us, you believe that more travelers should mean more trees being planted, then we have the remedy for just that.
There’s a good chance you’re going to fall in love with the new place you’re visiting – why not try to help protect it? Help to reforest the area so that when you come back, it’s even better.
When you book via B’n’Tree we’ll plant a tree at absolutely no cost to you. As your tree grows it will absorb more and more carbon emissions. Your simple click can even save threatened habitats. And that’s without even mentioning the benefits to some of your favorite, famous animals.
2. The Animals We Love Need a Home
So many of the animals we love would disappear overnight without trees. When we think of deforestation, we imagine barren landscapes and a rise in greenhouse gases.
However, deforestation also destroys the homes of many animals. If it doesn’t remove their home, it removes the home of their predators, their prey or their nesting grounds. One small action goes a long, long way.
Trees are also an unsung hero when it comes to protecting some of the world’s most amazing landscapes. Their roots prevent soil erosion and decrease the size of waves hitting the shoreline. All while providing a home for sea life, bird life and other precious ecosystems.
That’s where your help comes in. Your small action can go a long way too. By planting a tree you’ll ensure that your favorite animals have a habitat to thrive in. Think of India’s adorable slender loris. Your donation helps give this endangered animal a future.
In addition to many other countries, we plant trees in Brazil, Madagascar and Nepal. Jaguars, lemurs, elephants and leopards are just some of the animals that benefit from the trees we plant. Take a look at our world map to find out where we are planting trees. You can read more about the exciting tree-planting projects and the animals you’ll be helping.
3. Creating Jobs for Local People
Some of the countries that we plant trees in are also some of the world’s poorest. As well as destroying precious natural habitats to make money, some governments have made life pretty tough for local people. In certain countries there are few job opportunities, and a complete lack of resources. There are no stable incomes. There’s not even cash to provide children with an education.
By planting trees, you’re helping to provide a safe and stable income to the local people there. Even better, their work is green and sustainable! Trees are so important for travelers, but they really matter to local people too.
Planting trees creates a beautiful new cycle of sustainability. Locals are paid a fair wage. More trees are planted. Villages can construct schools and provide the next generation with an environmental education. At least, that’s what happened with Boto and Mary, in the Miracle Story of Mahabana – a hugely inspiring read.
