Trees purify our air by removing CO2 from the atmosphere, storing the carbon, and releasing the oxygen back into the air. Tree planting is globally recognized as one of the best nature-based solutions to reducing CO2 from the atmosphere. With carbon offset credits, you can earn money from trees that store CO2 on your land.

WHAT DOES THIS PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
ELIGIBILITY. We will work with you to determine whether your land qualifies for a carbon forest project, free of charge.
DOCUMENTATION. We will collect all documents in order to ensure that planting is permitted.
SITE-ASSESSMENT. We will visit the land to determine the planting area, the appropriate tree species and site-preparation requirements
LEGAL AGREEMENT. We will enter into a legal agreement with you.
STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT. We oversee that this project aligns with the existing local plans and customs.
PAYMENT. Once the forest has been successfully planted and assessed you will receive your first payment. These payments will be issued to you on a yearly basis.
YEARLY ASSESSMENT. Each year we will conduct an assessment of the forest in order to measure its health and growth.
TIMELINE OF MAIN PROJECT EVENTS
3 - 4 MONTHS
From the initial correspondence and land assessment to signing an agreement
6 - 12 MONTHS
Waiting period before site preparation & planting date. This depends on the time of year that the contract is signed.
Post-planting monitoring and reporting, with yearly validations by our team.
HOW MUCH WILL I BE PAID EACH YEAR?
Payment amounts are determined based on the amount of land, the forest type and the species of trees planted and growth projections for the forest. To get a sense of the income potential for your forest, fill out an Income Estimate Form.
WHAT ARE MY OBLIGATIONS?
Landowners must allow us access to the land at least once per year. You must agree not to harvest the forest for timber for a period of 100 years post-planting, and you must inform us of any events impacting the forest's growth or survival within one week of being aware of any occurrence.
