The MY TREES project was founded by two life partners, Beata and Jaroslav Pilný, because they no longer wanted to idly watch humans destroy the earth. Doing nothing means approving what is happening, even if it is wrong. That's why we live for MY TREES. The trees we plant breathe for the planet, for us, and for our children.
We are a group of enthusiastic people with Czech and American roots who share the same vision. We live all over the world, and thanks to modern technology, we work as one team.
We from MY TREES
Jaroslav PilnýFounder, Commander of Distribution Network, and Dreamer
Jaroslav spent more than 25 years of his life as a motivational speaker. He built world distribution networks until 2013, when he was removed from the payroll. In retrospect, he sees this “cut” as a wonderful gift, finding his own way and the universe. Jaroslav’s new universe is MY TREES, which he breathed life into with his wife, Beata. He says of the project: “MY TREES is fair to everyone involved in it, and also to Mother Earth and nature. Sometimes I feel like a Phoenix, born of ashes and bringing light into the future of our children.”
Beata PilnáFounder & guard of finance and contracts
Beata, along with husband Jarda, is the creator of the MY TREES concept. She graduated from the University of Ústí nad Labem and has many life roles. Beata raises two great boys and loves people, movement, and great challenges. She can drive like an engine with powerful torque, but at the same time knows when to turn on the emergency brake. Without exception, she surprises those who underestimate her, and she hates mediocrity.
Vladka Anderson CEO Perfect Network, Inc. & Planning Maniac
Vladka likes nature, forests, and fresh air. She strives to live a green lifestyle that favors the environment. That’s why she likes MY TREES. It connects everything it honors, and allows individuals to contribute to sustainability. As Vladka says: “It is just amazing to be a part of a project that inspires many people to work toward a better world. Together, we can change the future of our planet.”
Pavel ChadimaProduction & Bright-sighted Pája
Since his youth, Pavel has been fond of cameras, sports, and pretty women. Photography and video production have engulfed him all his life. Pavel’s photojournalism has won several awards, and has appeared in many exhibitions. He used to play tennis competitively, then as a coach he raised little tennis players. Today, he walks in the mountains and devotes himself to personal development. He is particularly fascinated by the connection between quantum physics and spirituality. Why does he enjoy MY TREES? “I’m glad to be present at the birth of what could become one of the largest planet-saving projects in the world.”
Courtenay EdelhartCopywriter & Idealist
Courtenay is a former journalist who lives in the Los Angeles area of the United States with two children, a mean little dog, and assorted dying houseplants. She loves books, movies and Snoopy. Courtenay promotes trees because she wants her family and future generations to breathe easier, literally and figuratively.
Denisa Miltová A good soul in customer support, and an enthusiastic reader
Denisa has several roles: mom, friend, team member. She likes reading, (especially Agatha Christie), listening to music, and cooking for family and friends. Family comes first, and MY TREES members are almost like her second family.
Radka LegerskaCopywriter & coffee addict
Radka writes constantly, often for MY TREES. And she drinks coffee, a lot of coffee. From behind her keyboard in Ostrava, she has a view of mature birch trees and is really annoyed at how trees are treated in the world. That’s why this combination of ecology and business excites and inspires her.
Kelvin ParkerProducer and creator
Kelvin likes to work with creatives on music and artistic projects. He has 20 plus years experience in the entertainment industry, and joined MY TREES to add his creative expertise to this unique project.
Vojta PincDesigner, animator & storyteller
Vojta draws and animates. Graphics are his life. He enjoys stories, listening, creating, and mediating. MY TREES creates one great story right now, which is exactly right for Vojta.
Zdenka PištěkováTutor and Tornado Lů
Life is a challenge for Zdenka. Many challenges, in fact. Roads do not go simply. They twist, rise, or fall sharply. Still, you march. You don’t pause to catch your breath and doubt if you made the right choice. That target somewhere in the distance drives you forward. Go on, don’t give up, overcome, and win. That’s how Zdenka sees it, and MY TREES sees it the same way.
Daniel ŠputaWeb Designer and code solver
Daniel is eager to work on projects that focus on meaningful solutions to everyday problems. Therefore, he is really pleased to be involved in the MY TREES project. It thus contributes to solving several problems at the same time, both for individuals and for all of humanity.
Táňa Tučková Editor and PR
Tanya has been passionate about writing since she was a teenager. She has been an editor in both print and broadcast media, including television news. These days, she works in public relations, and is excited about working for MY TREES. In her words, “I really appreciate my place on the team, and it’s a dream job – a meaningful project and bosses who live far away. Who has that today?
Tomáš SchwarzSEO Mág
Tomáš has been working on award-winning projects for nonprofit organizations since high school. He is currently a member of the board of an endowment fund that deals with the abuse of elephants. His main specialization is marketing, but he has volunteered for a wide array of good causes in many other ways.
