Trees for Elephants


Samui Elephant Sanctuary 

Buy A Tree for the Elephants

Support our tree planting program and help us create a greener home for the elephants at Samui Elephant Sanctuary by purchasing a tree that we will plant at one of our two locations – Bophut or Chaweng Noi.

Our plan is to create a more diverse forest for the elephants at our sanctuary by planting lots of new trees for them. The trees that we plant will provide shade and food for the elephants for years to come. 

Trees are wonderful gifts of nature. They anchor the earth, produce oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide and filter pollutants, shelter insects, birds and other animals, and provide nourishment with their leaves and fruits. Our reforestation program of native species will also improve the soil quality and help revive the local biodiversity.

Samui Elephant Sanctuary orders trees from a large nursery near Bangkok that has a diverse range of healthy trees, including many native species. Due to the high cost of delivery, we order trees in bulk a couple of times a year and to give them the best chance of survival, we plant the trees in the rainy season from June to October. If you buy a tree for the elephants outside this planting season window, we will add a sign with your name under a tree that has already been planted. Alternatively, if you order a tree in the dry season, then we will add your tree to our future tree order and plant your tree with a sign with your name in the rainy season.


By buying a tree for our sanctuary you are supporting eco-tourism and helping to make our sanctuary more sustainable. You will also be playing a small part in making the world a greener place.
