Planting Your Trees

We work in wild areas to help restore native forests. This means that we have to work and respect nature's rhythms.

Each project has a an annual weather window with the best tree planting conditions and we have to take that constraint into account in order to achieve the best outcomes. After you place your order our team will provide you with a timeline within 48h.

Generally there are two scenarios when it comes to timelines:

1. We have an open batch ready to assign

We plant the trees in large batches and will often plant a large batch in advance. When your order comes in we assign you to those trees and are able to deliver the photos and GPS within 3 days.

*If you find this confusing please checkout the FAQs below to understand our approach to additionality.

2. We have to wait for the next weather window

If your order is very large or we have 'run out of trees' we will have to plant your trees at a future date. The team will provide you with a date within 48h. The planting date usually falls within 3 months of your order at most projects. We will also present you with alternative projects and planting dates should you need a faster timeline.

Project Content & Tree Data

We will start by sending you the materials to promote the project. Once everything is sorted on the tree planting side we will assign you to your trees in our public database, send you a data export and the tree photos.

Project Content

We will provide you with a description of the project as well as images and Mossy Earth logos which you can use anywhere to promote and describe the project. This will be sent to you after the timeline is defined and any necessary changes have been approved on your end.

Tree Data Export

When the trees are assigned we will send you a simple excel export with a data string for each tree. Each tree has a unique ID, a unique image URL hosted by Mossy Earth and the GPS coordinate and/or a polygon ID of it's location.

Finally you will also receive a transfer with all the original tree photos should you wish to use that instead of the image URLs hosted by us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my tree bald? Is it alive?

Some of our trees are deciduous species and are planted without leaves. They are perfectly healthy and will be green and beautiful come spring!

If the tree is already planted why would I pay for it?

The reason for the timing is that we prefer to plant our trees in large quantities during the best weather window at each project in order to increase efficiency and survival rates. 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. No trees left behind!

How much carbon will my trees capture?

This varies by project but as a benchmark 4 trees planted will offset one tonne of CO2. This estimates is derived from our Scottish project.

How can I be sure that you are planting the trees?

Transparency is paramount to us and we go to great lengths to ensure that you are able to evaluate our work:

  • Every tree planted is photographed and it's GPS coordinates are taken. This data is available in a public database for you to verify.
    We report the number of trees planted by our members each month which you can cross-reference with the database.
    We report the number of trees planted and replanted in each polygon of our projects allowing you to visit and evaluate the projects in person.
    As a business customer you can contact and chat with the team to answer any questions you might have.
  •  

In addition to this we are working on some additional measure we hope to launch in due time such as live-streaming planting, 360 degree photos and aerial imagery.

What happens if some of my trees die?

Together with our partners we manage the planting areas to ensure that your trees survive to maturity. In order to achieve this we often have to replant any trees that die. At some of our projects where we face harsher conditions we might plant a buffer to account for initial mortality rates. We report planting, mortality and replanting numbers per polygon at each project.

Could you send the trees to my customers?

Due to the GDPR EU regulation we are not allowed to send the tree photos and GPS to your customer. The only way around this would be to make it clear to your customers that you would share their email with Mossy Earth. Due to the sensitive nature of personal data we chose not to offer this service and will instead provide you with all the tools required to ensure you can implement this successfully yourself.

Could my team plant the trees or volunteer at the projects?

Currently we do not offer this to our partners as it generally causes a few problems. Often teams have to travel long distances to reach our remote projects. We love for people to visit the projects but do not want to incentivise travel for a whole team as this creates a negative impact on the climate.

In the majority of our projects we plant using local workers. They are much better at their job and the money stays within the local economy giving locals a stake in the project.

Is Mossy Earth a charity or a business? Are my contributions tax deductible? Will you publish your accounts?

Mossy Earth is a private limited company based in the United Kingdom. We are not a charity. Purchases from our website should be treated in the same way as you would treat any other purchase you make with your business and not as a charitable donation.

We will not publish our accounts. We strive to make our work very transparent allowing each individual to asses our work by themselves instead of relying on the company accounts.

Possible Applications

Send a tree to each customer

  • You will have a unique tree ID, GPS and photo for each tree. You can use this through a mailing system such as Mailchimp or Active Campaign to send it to your individual customers. This is a really neat way of linking your customers with the positive impact you are making by restoring wild native forests. In the past we have seen this applied to conferences, e-commerce shops, travel agencies, construction companies, yoga retreats, surf holidays among many other business models.

Build a tree database on your website

Either by developing a database yourself or using a Google Sheet integrated with Awesome Table you can achieve some beautiful outcomes to display on your website. No coding skills required for this solution!

Gift the trees to your team

Plant a tree for each member of your team and send them the tree photos as a cool gift.
