Protecting and Expanding Forests Around the Globe

As the largest plant on the planet, trees and forests cover about 30 percent of Earth’s land surface. They give us oxygen, improve air quality, conserve water and much more. Their importance to the environment, as well as human beings and wildlife is invaluable.

This Earth Month, Microsoft and The Nature Conservancy are teaming up to help plant trees and restore forests globally. Supporting TNC’s Plant a Billion Trees program, Microsoft is helping in several ways:

Help Us Plant a Billion Trees

Plant Your Tree
  • For every eligible device recycled from April 1-28, Microsoft will help TNC plant 25 trees, up to $25,000. 
  • For every qualifying Surface or PC purchased from April 18-22, Microsoft will help TNC plant 5 trees, up to $25,000. 
  • When Microsoft Rewards members donate to TNC to help plant trees, Microsoft will double their donation throughout April. If you’re not a member, Microsoft will give you a free $1 to donate.
  • Working together with SilviaTerra, Microsoft and TNC are helping to protect the health of our forests. Find your forest at Microsoft’s Tree Potential Project.

You can help restore even more forests today by planting a tree through our Plant a Billion Trees program.
