The rain forests contain resources that provide economic and environmental benefit to the entire world. Everyday, however, thousands of miles of rain forest are lost. Planting a rain-forest tree reduces the impact of deforestation by restoring some of the area that has been destroyed.
Decide which rain forest you want to donate a tree to. Rain forests are located in Australia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Brazil, Guyana and Panama.
Locate a charity that plants trees in that region. Example charities include Rainforest Rescue and The Rainforest Foundation.
Donate the requested amount for planting a tree in that rain forest. Many charities will mail you a certificate with your tree's approximate location and a letter of gratitude for your donation.
