A Billion Begins with One Million

Plant Your Tree

The Dave Matthews Band Summer 2020 Tour has committed to help plant one million trees with The Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees program, a global forest restoration effort. With your help and with commitments from Dave Matthews Band, The Dreaming Tree Wines, DocuSign and other tour partners, we can help advance this goal in an effort to regreen our planet.

These trees will be planted across the globe in the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, China, & Africa. By restoring these healthy forests, we will provide many benefits to our everyday lives from helping to curb the effects of climate change, to providing clean air and fresh drinking water, to securing homes for thousands of species of plants and animals.

Dave Matthews Band fans will have the opportunity to support the effort and contribute $2 to plant a tree per ticket when purchasing tickets for the 2020 Summer Tour through Ticketmaster or Warehouse, The Official Dave Matthews Band Fan Association. 

Helping the planet is bigger than us, but it starts with each of us. Let’s dream big and plant a million trees.
