SilverSkies.org is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to reducing human-induced climate change primarily by offsetting emissions through tree planting. We do this by making trees available to those in need through our Tree Request Program. Each tree we donate could help sequester nearly 1 ton of carbon dioxide over its lifetime. Tree planting is a simple solution to a complex problem, and SilverSkies.org is here to help.
SilverSkies.org focuses its efforts primarily in Minnesota at this time. We are most effective as a tree planting nonprofit by using resources locally. With time, our local efforts will have a meaningful global impact.
We often take trees and the greenery around us for granted, but trees are a first line of defense in the fight against climate change. Trees act as a major carbon sink that helps offset the emissions we create by manufacturing, heating our homes and driving our cars. SilverSkies.org’s sequestration approach recognizes that humans will likely not be able to significantly reduce their activities that cause climate change; the most practical way to reduce our impact is by offsetting emissions, and tree planting is a great place to start.
