SayTrees Environmental Trust (SayTrees) is a professional working group devoted to protecting the environment and sensitising citizens about the importance of conservation. The organizations mission is to empower people to give back to nature and live in a healthier environment. The group consists of passionate nature lovers, who work in regular offices from Monday to Friday and contribute to saving the environment over weekends.

Main activities are:

Tree and sapling plantation: SayTrees is actively engaged in a variety of activities involving research, education, campaigns and advocacy regarding the importance of planting trees across several cities in India.  They pro-actively engage in identifying areas for planting trees, keeping in mind the natural biodiversity of the local area.

The objective is to ensure that the trees planted, not only help local communities, but also provide fruits and flowers for future generations. During FY15, the team at SayTrees planted 10,324 saplings which included neem, tamarind, custard apple, mango, peepal, Indian almond and banyan to name a few.

SayTrees provides farmers with fruit bearing saplings as these trees will help them have a parallel source of income in the near future. So far 4,000 saplings have been planted with 11 farmers in Anantpur district.

Advocacy and Awareness: SayTrees drives citizens to come together on weekends and for seven years, they have been working hard to help change the landscape in Bangalore. From individuals to corporate teams, SayTrees has worked tirelessly to make sure that tree plantation is imbibed into the minds of everyone. They have also tied up with eBay and conduct activities to spread awareness among volunteers about tree plantation.

Future Plans: Plantations targeted for FY16 in Bangalore are around 20,000 saplings, in Chennai 5,000 saplings, in Hyderabad 2,000 saplings and in Delhi/Noida/Gurgaon 5,000 saplings.

SayTrees has engaged with many corporate teams in their initiatives to help meet the long term plan of making the environment greener. Some of these are Adobe, AIG, Asperian Global, Cisco and Cargill.
