Reforestation remains among the most effective strategies for climate change mitigation.

Trees capture carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and store it in their trunk, branches and roots.

Furthermore, forests also provide a safe haven for wildlife. In order to boost local biodiversity we focus on planting native trees from local seeds.

Trust is paramount to us, this is why we record all our trees in an open database with a photograph and GPS coordinate.

How it Works

1. Saplings are planted

We start by working with a team of biologists and forest engineers to determine what species of trees to plant at each one of our projects. We generally try to select seeds and saplings from local DNA pools so they can adapt well when planted.

The saplings planted are between one and three years old. We always plant in large batches during the best time of the year for each project. Sometimes our planting window can be only a few weeks.

To cover any initial losses we plant between 30% an 200% extra trees at this stage depending on the risk of the project.

2. Photographing and mapping

Between one and six months after planting, we photograph each tree and take it's GPS coordinates.

We make this data available to everyone in an open database to ensure the highest level of transparency. This method also helps us assess planting densities and initial survival rates in each section of the project.

With our current accuracy you should be able to get within 10 meters of your tree using your phone to search for the GPS location of your trees.

3. Assigning the trees

When you plant trees with Mossy Earth we assign you to the trees in our database. This means that we assign the unique photo and GPS coordinate of a tree to a unique ID for each customer.

But if the tree is already planted why are you paying for it?
In order to be able to guarantee additionality (that your payment contributed to plant a tree that would otherwise not be planted) we finish allocating each batch before moving on to the next one. Thus if you don't purchase that specific tree we would wait until someone else decides to do so.

Each payment plants a tree and there is no ambiguity.

4. Monitoring and replanting

Our goal is for the planted areas to develop into a mature wild forest. We use the original planting densities and compare them to each annual sample to see whether we need to replant.

Depending on the project we will replant any trees lost between 3 to 10 years after the original planting date in the area.

We only plant in areas which will remain wild such as public lands and private protected conservation areas. We always make sure the planting areas are managed locally and play a role a wider regional conservation plan.
