How it works

  1. Your order gets a tree. Every time you print with Canva, your order will unlock a tree to be planted at one of our 18 locations, across 11 countries.
  2. Your tree finds a home. Reduce. Reuse. Grow. (RRG), an accredited reforestation organization, finds the perfect planting site for your tree to create biodiversity and wildlife restoration.
  3. Your tree is planted. Our local communities and farmers plant your tree, bringing back vitality to their landscape so they can farm more sustainably.

Why plant trees?

Canva is on a mission to heal the planet so local communities and farmers can farm more sustainably.

By planting and protecting trees, we’re improving water retention, biodiversity and habitat protection while creating opportunities in agriculture and agroforestry.

What are we planting?

We’re planting native species to restore essential, threatened ecosystems.

To foster plant diversity, we’ve planted over 205 different native tree species from Ficus to Balete trees to the Afzelia Quanzensis.

How are we protecting endangered species?

One Print, One Tree plants also protect endangered species by saving their habitats.

This is the focal point of our tree planting site in the Philippines, which is supporting local communities to find habitats for endangered species such as the Philippine Eagle and Philippine Crocodile.

Saving the Philippines Eagle

We’ve partnered with the Philippine Eagle Foundation to protect the endangered Philippines Eagle. We’re committed to ensuring its survival, the biodiversity it represents, and the sustainable use of our forest resources for future generations to enjoy.


The Philippine Eagle — the national bird of the Philippines — is one of the rarest eagles in the world. It is a giant bird of prey that’s listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), with an estimated number of only 400 pairs left in the wild. The Eagles are threatened daily by human activities — the forest is their only home.


Unfortunately, illegal logging and irresponsible use of resources have resulted in the disappearance of their forest habitat, with at least one Philippine eagle being killed every year. As more of our forest is lost, Philippine Eagles go farther from their usual hunting grounds in search of prey to hunt. This rare and majestic bird species can be found nowhere else but in the Philippines. Losing the species to extinction would also mean that the world is losing a precious biological heritage.

Meet the Communities

Moraharivo, Madagascar

Our planting partners in the Betsiboka River are focusing on restoring its precious mangrove forests. The estuaries of the Betsiboka were once surrounded by mangrove forests that held a variety of habitats for unique plant and animal species. For centuries, local Malagasy people have relied on the fish and shellfish living in these ecosystems for sustainable food sources. The mangroves’ deep root systems are also vital for stabilizing the coastline and reducing erosion.

  • Type of Reforestation – Mangrove
  • Size of Site – 872 hectares
  • Trees per Hectare – 10,000
  • 2021 Hectares Restored – 20
  • Carbon Sequestered per Hectare – 840 metric tons
  • Total Estimated Carbon Sequestered – 16,800 metric tons

Mahubo, Mozambique

Located in the district of Boane, the Mahubo site has an area of approximately 82km. The local village is made up of over 100K people, most of whom rely on agriculture for subsistence. The area has seen a massive loss of its mangrove forests due to the overharvesting of charcoal and timber. Canva will be restoring an area of approximately 20 hectares by planting over 200,000 mangroves, specifically the native species of Rizhopora, Ceriops, and Bruguiera.

  • Type of Reforestation – Mangrove
  • Size of Site – 645 hectares
  • Trees per Hectare – 10,000
  • 2021 Hectares Restored – 20
  • Carbon Sequestered per Hectare – 840 metric tons
  • Total Estimated Carbon Sequestered – 16,800 metric tons

Kitiligini, Kenya

North of Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, the village of Kijabe stands on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. It is known for its dry steep terrain and Afromontane forests. This unique forest in Kenya is home to many pastoral communities that rely on the local ecosystem to sustain themselves and the economy. Due to deforestation events related primarily to charcoal harvesting, the land is highly degraded. Our restoration partners will utilize multiple methods of reforestation, including farmer-managed natural regeneration (FMNR) to help restore the area.

  • Type of Reforestation – Afromontane
  • Size of Site – 1493 hectares
  • Trees per Hectare – 2,500
  • 2021 Hectares Restored – 20

Aquin Bay West, Haiti

Over-harvesting activities for firewood and construction material have decimated mangrove forests along the coastlines of Haiti. Pollution, sea-level rise, and hurricanes also play a part in threatening the health of mangrove ecosystems by blocking or disrupting the tidal flow. Reforesting the southern coastline is crucial not only for the ecosystem but for the health and safety of local communities. Planting mangroves will help protect the local people from the destructive forces of hurricanes that too often hit Haiti.

  • Type of Reforestation – Mangrove
  • Size of Site – 338 hectares
  • Trees per Hectare – 10,000
  • 2021 Hectares Restored – 9
  • Carbon Sequestered per Hectare – 840 metric tons
  • Total Estimated Carbon Sequestered – 7,560 metric tons

Philippines

At the beginning of the last century, 70% of the Philippines was forested, but this has rapidly declined to a low of about 18.3%. This is largely due to deforestation along with land degradation and has had devastating consequences on biodiversity. With over 304,000 acres of forest cover destroyed in the Philippines each year, the remaining forests could be gone by the year 2036.

With more than 20,000 endemic species, the Philippines is recognized as one of 17 nations that, together, hold two-thirds of the earth’s biological diversity.

With this in mind and the Philippines being such an important part of the Canva family (our largest offshore team is based in Manila), we’re driven to action. Through this program, the Canva Community can make a difference across the world and in our own backyard.

Quotation mark
"My father taught me, if you cut down your forest, it will come back and destroy you. You will go to throw your spear and all you will hit is a rock. I am protecting this forest. People come trying to steal our trees, I told them, "You will have to carry my body away dead." The forest is too important to our village. Because we are protecting the forest we can actually survive on our own from the land here and not have to rely on other places."
