Give Me Trees was registered as a Charitable Trust in the year 2011 and today it has become an important organization in the country working for Greenery. It’s more than 11,500 volunteers are engaged in realizing the dream of Peepal Baba by becoming environmental fighters in 27 states.
Over the years, GMT has planted over 20 million trees across the country in collaboration with the Indian Army, Air force, Government Agencies, Schools, Universities, Corporate, and Villages, etc. and has inspired thousands of people to take care of the environment. Native trees including shade trees, fruit trees and shrubs are a priority for preservation and conservation.
Education and awareness has always been a key feature of GMT. Because no individual, company, NGO or government can solve the problem of environmental degradation alone, it requires collaboration at a massive scale. GMT thus regularly conducts education and environment seminars in schools, colleges, institutions, corporate and communities.
Looking at the grim urban scenario, GMT is coming up with innovative approaches to maximize urban green spaces involving individuals, as every green leaf makes a difference in fighting the havoc of urban pollution. For rural areas, we are promoting natural farming techniques, permaculture, and cause of desi cows, gobar manure, composting, waste management, water management and intensive tree planting in the form of green belts.
GMT team consists of volunteers from all walks of life. Over 11,500 volunteers and interns across the country help conserve tree saplings that are planted in various public and private places such as gardens, roadsides, highways, expressways, road medians, schools, colleges, university areas, military stations, mountains, and river banks.
