Thank you for all your help so far! We have now moved to Crowdfunder.
Please visit www.crowdfunder.co.uk/trees-of-music to make a donation and to help us save the Pernambuco tree!
The pernambuco tree is critically endangered, and with it the future of classical music
You can help empower rural farmers to reforest the Atlantic Forest, and conserve the longevity of classical music and make the bow making industry sustainable.
Bows have been made from this uniquely resonant wood for three centuries, but for how much longer?
As featured on BBC Radio 3, The Strad & Globo TV
Deforestation has shrunk the Brazilian Atlantic Forest by 93%. Logging for bows has devastated pernambuco populations in the remaining fragments.
This unique species and hundreds of others will be lost without urgent action to save this precious biome.
Who are we?
Classical musicians, music lovers and ecologists collaborating to support reforestation through performance, education and action.
Join us to protect the trees of music.

The full cost is £60,000.
The spring/summer fundraiser for £12,000 covers stage 1 until October.
