Team Trees, also known as TeamTrees or #teamtrees, is a 2019 collaborative fundraiser that managed to raise 20 million U.S. dollars before 2020 to plant 20 million trees. The initiative was started by American YouTubers MrBeast and Mark Rober, and was mostly supported by YouTubers.[1] All donations go to the Arbor Day Foundation, a tree-planting organization that pledges to plant one tree for every U.S. dollar donated.[2] The Arbor Day Foundation plans to begin planting in January 2020 and end "no later than December 2022".[2][3] It is estimated that 20 million trees would take up 180 km2 (69 sq mi) of land,[4] absorb around 1.6 million tons of carbon and remove 116 thousand tons of chemical air pollution from the atmosphere.[5][6]

As of December 26, 2019, the project has raised over 20.7 million US dollars, surpassing the fundraiser's goal to plant 20 million trees.[7]

Background

The idea started on May 24, 2019, when a fan suggested on Reddit that MrBeast (Jimmy Donaldson) should plant 20 million trees to celebrate reaching 20 million subscribers on YouTube.[8][3] The idea spread across YouTube, Reddit, and Twitter, mostly in the form of memes.[2][3] The idea may be related to the 2019 Amazon rainforest wildfires. American YouTuber, engineer, and inventor Mark Rober partnered directly with Donaldson to launch the fundraiser. On October 25, 2019, Donaldson uploaded a YouTube video explaining his plan,[9][10] which claimed the top spot on YouTube's trending page, and numerous YouTubers have joined the movement.[3][11]

Notable YouTubers who have donated include PewDiePie,[12][13] Rhett & Link,[2] Marshmello,[2] iJustine,[2] Marques Brownlee,[2] The Slow Mo Guys,[2] Ninja,[2][12] Simone Giertz,[2] Jacksepticeye,[2][14] Smarter Every Day,[2] Simply Nailogical, The King of Random, The Try Guys, Alan Becker,[12][15] Alan Walker,[16][17] TheOdd1sOut [18] Linus Tech Tips,[19] Jeffree Star[12][20][21] and Jaiden Animations. Entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk,[22][23] Tobias Lütke,[24][25] Marc Benioff,[12][26] Susan Wojcicki,[12][27] Jack Dorsey,[12][28] and Jean-Michel Lemieux[12][29] have also donated and promoted the campaign.

The trees will be planted "in a variety of forests on public and private lands in areas of great need" starting in January 2020. The goal is to have them planted "no later than December 2022".[2][3]

Responses

Many Youtubers created content to capitalise on the growing trend of Team Trees;[3] despite the Arbor Day Foundation only reaching out to only a few hundred creators, Team Trees is now featured in over 8000 videos from over 400 global creators.[30] Across Instagram and Twitter over 556,000 posts have garnered more than 4.6 billion views.[31] Creators were able to uniquely inspire their audience to become donors and supporters of Team Trees through their relationships with their fans.[30]

In addition to social media influencers, large corporations made large donations including Verizon,[12][32] EA,[33][34] Salesforce (Marc Benioff), Shopify (CEO Tobias Lutke[12][24][25] and CTO Jean-Michel Lemieux[12][26]) and Tesla (Elon Musk).[12][20][22][23][10]

Discovery Channel made a documentary called #TeamTrees about the campaign which aired on December 3, 2019, coupled with a donation of USD $100,200 the next day.[35]
