Why plant with us?
We Are More Than Just Trees, More Than Just Offsets
We know there are many CO2 offsetting programs out there, but we feel they’re a bit like throwing a coin into a wishing well, without really knowing what actually happens to that coin. Trees4Travel offers complete transparency, a connection between the traveler, their trees & their impact. Trees are tangible, understandable & affordable - something that we can all see, be proud of & watch grow.
By planting trees in developing countries, we then also help to restore ecosystems, biodiversity & support local communities through the dignity of employment. Reforestation will help reverse climate change, but trees can sometimes be fragile & take time to grow, so to ensure we remove carbon emissions as quickly as possible, we always assign each tree with a share of a United Nations (CER) certified emissions reduction where we simultaneously invest into renewable energy projects, essentially doubling our promise & backing up our CO2 removal claim.
To work efficiently, we carefully select & focus on just
a few reforestation projects of at a time.
Once the tree growing project is underway, we will update you on progress & to ensure that the forest continues to be well maintained, we will provide photography & video footage that we share with you, so you can see how the forest is growing.
Reporting & Updates
We will show you the exact location of where your trees are planted, you can follow their progress, watch them grow.
We report back to you on a monthly basis to show you how much CO2 your saplings are absorbing as they grow.
We show an account of how much CO2 has been created by your trips & show you how you can improve your carbon footprint.
We only work with verified planting partners to ensure all our forest projects are impactful & successful.
