This is the Web site for the United Nations Environment Programme's (UNEP) worldwide tree planting campaign.
The site is well-organized and information is easily found. The left side menu leads to the main areas of the site.

The Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign is the worldwide tree planting campaign of the United Nations Environment Programme asking people, communities, businesses and industries, civil society organizations, and others to make pledges to plant trees. What a great way to get students involved in an environmental project that combats climate change! Individual classes or schools can find all the information they need to join the campaign and promote it in their own community. Pledges at the site can be anything from a single tree to 10 million trees with an emphasis on planting indigenous trees and trees that are appropriate to the local environment. Visitors to the site can find sections such as Facts and Figures, which contains basic information that tells where forests are found and how much of the world is forested. Trees and Humanity, another section, discusses the role of trees in our lives. There is also a section called How to Plant a Tree, with step-by-step instructions.
