“When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.” Native American proverb

Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife. Planting a tree is the most beautiful and yet simple way to offset your carbon footprint.

By doing so you’ll be offsetting as much as 22kg of carbon dioxide per year, which equates to 1 ton of CO2 over a 40 year period. That’s the equivalent of driving a medium sized car for 40 hours non-stop or the energy use of an average European’s home for 28 days.

Tree planting

To avoid the hot, harsh Portuguese summers, we will be tree planting in October 2017. 50% of the trees will go to the Faia Brava reserve, located in the Coa Valley in the northeast of Portugal. This is the most ambitious rewilding project in the country, perhaps even Europe. The 1000+ hectares of privately protected land is home to wild horses, wild taurus, beech martens, polecats, wild cats, foxes and birds such as the Iberian imperial eagle, black vulture, kites, golden eagle, eagle owl and the Bonelli’s eagle. The remaining 50% of trees will go to land managed by our partners Montis. Their work focuses specifically on native fire-resistant forests to help avoid the type of disaster that we saw in Portugal this summer.

What sets us apart?

By planting a tree you’re not only reducing your carbon emissions but you will be helping to build a self-sustaining wild ecosystem. Your indigenous tree will be planted in a rewilding project. Imagine your tree providing food, shelter and shade for species such as wild horses, wolves, bison, vulture and other large birds of prey. – Endangered native species that are slowly being reintroduced in rewilding projects across Europe.

If you would like to make an even greater impact, or offer a tree as a gift then check out our Life Time Carbon Offset, Birthday Tree Gift, Wedding Gift, and Graduation Gift products.

Planting in Portugal begins in October. This way we avoid the harsh dry weather typical of the Portuguese interior during the Summer months. You will get all the details closer to the date. In the meantime, we have explained the “How? When? and Where?” in our Tree Planting Article.
