Planting a tree sounds like a nice idea in theory, but what if you’re not sure what kind to plant, or where to put it? What if you live in a downtown apartment and you just don’t know what would be most helpful?

It’s OK! There are probably many of us out there who would scratch our heads, not sure where to start.

Enter: The Canopy Project.

We learned about it while clicking around on

The project plants trees across the globe, and since 2010, the Earth Day organization has planted tens of millions of trees with The Canopy Project, according to the website.

EARTHDAY.ORG works with global partners to reforest areas in dire need of rehabilitation, including areas with some of the world’s communities most at-risk from climate change and environmental degradation. We have also conducted broad tree planting in the wake of environmental disasters.”

Here’s how you can help: $1 = one tree.

So, if you’re a novice gardener or you don’t even own a shovel, don’t waste your money buying supplies from Home Depot or Lowe’s. You could donate to the Canopy Project instead, and know that your cash is going even further.
