Known for its incredible biodiversity, Borneo is home to numerous rare and unique animals. By purchasing a tree through the ROAR initiative, you’ll help to create and reconnect important forest corridors that have been degraded through deforestation. Our vision is to restore these landscapes, thus benefiting the wildlife and supporting local communities for years to come. Your support for this reforestation project helps to create habitats for endangered animals (which include the Bornean orangutan and Borneo Pygmy Elephant), as well as offsetting your carbon footprint. This can be something you do for yourself, or it can be dedicated to someone special for any occasion, such as birthdays, anniversaries or Christmas! As living and breathing organisms, trees make unique gifts as they can live for several decades, and they bring about significant benefits to our planet.
All the trees will be planted on our reforestation sites at the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary, assigned by the Sabah Wildlife Department.
We plant trees for everyone! If you are a part of an organisation that would like to support the ROAR initiative, we’d would love to discuss this further with you. Read more about what other companies have done with us!
For those of you who’d like to donate monthly, every few months, or yearly (you decide) without the hassle of having to do it manually on our website, why not get a subscription? If this interests you, contact us here.
A personalised e-certificate with GPS coordinates of your trees. This certificate can be customised for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas or any other occasion!
We’ll send you a photo as well as the species names of the trees planted.
Maintenance is an important part of our reforestation project. With regular maintenance, the saplings have a growth and survival rate of up to 85% compared to saplings without maintenance.
Against all odds, my fiancé and I were able to reunite in Oslo last December after some 8 months of involuntary separation due to the pandemic. A dear friend and her husband surprised us with a truly meaningful gift: a bayur tree planted in honour of our marriage in the heart of Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary in northern Borneo! We were blown away! This thoughtful and meaningful act directly contributes towards healing and restoring our amazing rainforest. Someday, we hope to visit our tree and find it teeming with life.
I bought 3 trees to be planted in honour of a little baby boy’s birth. Not only did I get a fab certificate, but I also got photos, the GPS details of where the trees are planted and the type of trees that were planted. For 60 ringgit, I was able to plant 3 trees, give an incredibly personal gift to a newborn, which will grow with him for the rest of his life and get the satisfaction of having helped Mother Earth cope a little better with the eccentricities of humanity. Thanks APE Malaysia for what you do!
I am so happy to have found the initiative. If you’re looking for a meaningful gift or a way to honour someone, definitely think about the gift of planting trees back into the rainforest. Poh Sim made this all a breeze, with photos and the GPS locations. I will definitely gift this again and would recommend to everyone!
Excellent initiative. Love that I could gift this to low-waste-practicing friends and family for Christmas/birthdays and help conserve our precious rainforests at the same time. Very responsive and kept me posted on timeline from point of purchase until the trees were planted. Thank you, APE Malaysia.
Amazing initiative. Good communication and quick response. And its affordable! I encourage everyone to take part in this initiative and do our bit in saving our beloved Mother Earth.
