    使命 Mission Statement


    The Million Tree Project of Shanghai Roots & Shoots began in 2007 with a mission to combat desertification and improve both ecological and humanitarian conditions by planting one million trees.

    We work with local communities, as well as volunteers on our planting trips, to plant specialized soil-fixing and carbon-sequestering trees and shrubs that push back against both desertification and climate change. We intimately involve and benefit local populations in partnership through each step of the project from planting to maintaining and monitoring the trees.

    At our sites in Inner Mongolia and Ningxia we have already blown past our original goal of one million trees, but we have no intention to stop our afforestation efforts anytime soon.

    项目目标 Project Objectives


    With the continued support of our sponsors, partners, and team members, MTP aims to:

    • 减缓沙漠化  Slow Down Desertification
    • 对抗气候变化  Fight Climate Change
    • 植树造林  Reforest
    • 碳中和  Sequester Carbon
    • 提升环境意识  Raise Environmental Awareness

    2,514,637 trees planted so far in Inner Mongolia

    Our first planting site, started in 2007 to combat the rapidly expanding desertification in Inner Mongolia. Our experts work with volunteers and local farmers to plant tree species tailored to the local soil conditions, such as hybrid poplar (Populus simonii) and the Mongolian Scots pine (Pinus sylvestnis var. mongolica Litv.) in order to reverse the degradation of the soil which causes devastating sand storms that harm local communities and their economies.

    Started in 2015 at the Baijitan Nature Reserve, this planting site aims to prevent the expansion of the Maowusu Sandy Land which threatens both the regional environment and the local economy. We tailor our afforestation efforts specifically to the soil conditions at Lingwu, using shrubs such as the Littleleaf and Korshinsk Peashrubs, as well as the construction of massive straw grids, to prevent soil erosion and stop the continued desertification of land in the region.
