Only projects aiming at improving the conservation status of globally threatened tree species listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened species are eligible. Threatened species include those listed as Vulnerable (VU), Endangered (EN) or Critically Endangered (CR). Therefore, applicants must check the status of their target species to ensure that their project is eligible. If a species is considered as threatened but the assessment is not yet published on the Red List website, detailed additional information justifying a VU, EN or CR status must be provided. Priority will be given to projects targeting CR and EN species. Projects targeting VU species will be accepted when immediate investments will be necessary to stop a rapid decline. The Foundation define trees as plant species presenting a single trunk at least 2 meter high. Threatened tree species will be the main key performance indicators of the projects. Projects proposing a positive impact on other threatened species and associated habitats will be favoured (collateral benefits). The Foundation will favour projects of global relevance (globally threatened species) versus projects protecting species locally or regionally threatened.
