Hart Cunningham has set out to plant one billion trees. He has planted more than 45 millions trees in his four decades of experience and is determined to reach his goal. The environmentalist and musician wants to spend the next 40 years turning 45 million into a trillion.
Hart Pearson “Sebastian” Cunningham was raised by artists seeking a life that reflected well on Mother Earth. Hart began his quest to plant a billion trees when he was three years old in Dominica, using local vegetation. At age 5, then living in Nova Scotia, he continued his passion for trees with an apple orchard. Hart, who was 16 years old, had already planted 740 trees. He joined the Buckley High School Class of ’93-’95 (152 students total over three years), to plant trees 14 weeks a week in California.
Hart spent three terms at The Michael G. Foster School of Business at the University of Washington in Seattle. He wrote his thesis “Economics Related To Humanity and Environment” at 21. This was where he continued his passion for the environment and his love of nature. He returned to California to complete his Master’s degree in Economics at Claremont Graduate University. He was the youngest recorded to achieve this feat at age 22.
Hart’s tree planting abilities increased with his financial resources. He was the only Ernst and Young three time ‘Entrepreneur of the year’ finalist. Hart has maintained his commitment to planting as many trees as possible into adulthood. Hart has invested in 19 drones or aerial-focused seed pods totaling 45 million trees. This is after 40 years of dedicated service to Mother Earth.
Hart retired at 38 from software architecture. Since taking early retirement, he has run for POTUS (Hart2020) at age 42, with a campaign focused on solving climate change and income inequality globally. Hart now plans to spend the next 40 years pursuing his lifetime goal of planting one trillion trees. With more time and freedom to dedicate himself to this goal, he is determined to do even more to save and support the environment. He is more personally invested in his health and well-being, with a particular focus on contortion.
Hart can be found on Instagram @RydermanM where he shares thoughts and experiences in physicality and spirituality as well as the benefits of connecting to nature. Hart also spends his time empowering music lovers globally, as musician Ryderman. You can find his music on Spotify and Apple Music. Spotify has streamed his song “Stay” more than 1 million times.
