Is 8 Billion Trees Legitimate? Review the Evidence

8 Billion Trees Co-founder Jon Chambers with his team in the Amazon

Is 8 Billion Trees legit or a "scam"?

This is a question sometimes asked of us by supporters, and we understand their concern and don't consider it offensive at all!

With so many amazing groups to donate to, it can be hard to decide who to support (and it's actually one of the reasons 8 Billion Trees donates to many different charities to expand our impact).

That's why doing your research is so important.

To make that research less time consuming, we have compiled a list of third-party resources for you to review that will help educate you on how 8 Billion Trees operates around the world.

First and foremost, you can find us listed on all of our partner's websites and we encourage you to contact them to confirm our work together.

In fact, one of the largest tree non-profits in the world, Eden Reforestation, published an article positively reviewing us.

Additionally, the leading organization for auditing tree planting and conservation groups, Plant-It 2020, gave us a positive review, stating in their highlights briefing that "8 Billion Trees presented themselves as genuinely interested in both quality reforestation and transparency."

Did you know that 8 Billion Trees is one of the only organizations actively taking action on the ground in the Amazon Rainforest?

Because of this, we are listed on multiple government websites throughout the Amazon.

Please keep in mind that our team is constantly working to expand our contracts with government officials of the Amazon Rainforest so that we can continue to progress our efforts and continue our fight against the deforestation crisis.

The above agreements, however, provide a look into the time-consuming process of forming contracts to plant and conserve trees.

In addition to this documentary series, our team is currently working on an updated documentary to highlight many of the new things we are doing all around the world. Once it is completed, we will post it here as well as our YouTube channel.
