Every year California battles devastating fires. Hundreds upon hundreds of hectares of trees are lost annually. Drought, high temperatures and high winds are the main cause of California’s fires, and it is getting worse. This year, we saw a 500% increase in forest fires across America.

PLANT & PREVENT
Keeping trees alive is as important as planting new ones. This is why we finance awareness videos on social media, to show people what we can do to minimise the impact of deforestation in our everyday lives. Along with financing tree planting projects, we also finance the protection of our newly planted trees.
In the year 2020, California lost over 121,000 hectares of forest.
It’s getting worse!
The fires are getting worse every year
“Big Basin Redwoods state park, California’s oldest state park and home of some of its majestic redwoods, sustained “extensive damage”, according to the state parks and recreation department, with several historic buildings destroyed.”
Jaw-dropping fire tornadoes
It seems that wildfires are burning nearly all the time. Fourteen of the 20 most devastating fires in the United States’ history have occurred since 2007, and California has had 78 more annual “fire days” now than it had 50 years ago.
2020 broke all the records, and in spectacular fashion. Breath-taking “Fire Tornados” have spun out from the heat thrown off by monster fires in August. A never before seen sequence of more than 11,000 lightning strikes in a span of 72 hours, in mid-August, sparked several large blazes. This was unusual for California, where more than 95% of wildfires every year are caused by humans.
When 2018 became the worst wildfire year on record, we recognised a new reality. Each year could surpass the last, setting records for the size, destruction, cost and loss of life by wildfire. A state-commissioned report made the harrowing projection that, under current emission trends, the average burn area in California will increase by 77% by the end of the century.
HAND-ASSEMBLED IN SLOVENIA, CREATING JOBS FOR THE LOCALS ALL OVER THE WORLD
Purchasing a Treecelet bracelet does more than just plant trees. Our bracelets are hand-made in Slovenia by mothers that take care of their children at home. This way, they can work from home and raise our most precious gold – children. Are children not one of the main reasons to preserve nature?
The bracelets also provide sustainable and living-wage jobs to local people where the trees are planted. By financing tree planting projects, nature preservation becomes their mission.
