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 & offers that 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 immediately, 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 & try to focus on one forest of
around 70,000 to 100,000 trees at a time.
Once the tree planting project is underway, we will update you on progress & to ensure that the forest continues to be well maintained, we will provide photography and 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 watch 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.
