The Olive Tree Project

The Olive Tree Project

Plant a tree for peace in Palestine.

By planting saplings on fields at risk of confiscation you are preserving the farmer's rights to tend their own land. Planting an olive tree means you are helping the Palestinian people maintain their ancient ties to the land, preserving an important source of income and sustenance.

Your tree will also produce a harvest of fruit and pruned branches that can be used for oil, soap and hand-carved gifts, helping Palestinian families make money.

Planting costs £15 and covers the cost of the olive sapling, planting and classes for farmers on the best techniques for olive tree care and production improvement, as well as some project implementation costs.

You will receive one gift card for each tree you sponsor and you can pass the card on as a gift.

Your gift is a donation so if you are a UK Tax payer, please tick the Gift Aid box at the checkout.

Once the tree is planted and registered, the person who registers the tree will receive a Planting Certificate and the story of the farmer on whose land the sapling has been planted. Details on how to register the tree are in the card. Recipients can also sign up to receive email updates on the Olive Tree Project.

Important info:

Trees are planted each spring and Planting Certificates will be sent out in the summer following the planting season.Trees bought from 1 February 2021 onwards will be planted in Spring 2022 and certificates sent Summer 2022.  Trees must be registered to receive Planting Certificates.
