About us

Global commitments to restore degraded forests and landscapes while also halting biodiversity loss, reducing poverty and mitigating climate change require us to radically step up conservation and restoration of tree species and their genetic resources.

To identify effective conservation and restoration strategies, detailed information is needed about the distributions of tree species, their traits and local uses, the treats they are facing and the availability of seed sources.

The Tree Diversity database brings together this information for hundreds of native tree species across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Explore our interactive tools to learn about species distributions and uses and set conservation and restoration priorities for your species of choice.
