What do you give the person who has everything?

TIST Christmas Trees!

Give the gift of trees for only $1 each!

Over 10 million trees are alive today, thanks to more than 60,000 TIST subsistence farmers in Africa and India.

Plant as many trees in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and India as you like for just $1 each. Trees are wonderful gifts for:

  • Holidays
  • Birthdays
  • Anniversaries
  • Earth Day
  • Memorials
  • Housewarmings

Trees are the perfect gift! And more trees mean a better environment and a better life for people in developing countries.

Trees combat deforestation, increase biodiversity, create shade, stop erosion, supply fruit, nuts and medicines and repair river banks. That means a better environment for us all. That’s why The International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST) was established in 1999.

For just $1 per tree, you can give family and friends on your shopping list a unique gift that truly keeps on giving: live trees planted in their names in Africa and India!

The local environments in areas where the TIST Program is located are improving as the trees sequester carbon, provide more fertile soil and encourage rainfall.

It couldn’t be easier to help. And it couldn’t be more worthwhile.

Our Mission

I4EI Homepage

I4EI benefits people at the base of the world economic pyramid through reforestation and other projects that follow accepted sustainable development principles.

Today I4EI supports over 9,000 Small Groups of subsistence farmers in The International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST). The men and women in TIST Small Groups are starting nurseries, planting trees and adopting improved agriculture practices that yield a larger harvest. They receive training on HIV/AIDS, malaria, nutrition and construction of fuel-efficient cooking stoves that protect women and children from breathing harmful smoke. Over 11 million trees are alive today in previously deforested areas of Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and India as a result of the efforts and ingenuity of over 65,000 TIST Small Group members.
