We ensure that the carbon sequestered from our trees is not counted more than once. Each tree is planted directly due to an action by a user or business partner.
Our tree planting sites are protected by local government and community contracts. By doing so, land is safeguarded from being bought or used for a different purpose.
With 150+ species planted across our global sites, we pride ourselves on transparency via the online open source platform Restor.eco.
Forests are vital for all living organisms. And yet, we are seeing climate change accelerate at a rate beyond what we can sustain.
Coastal communities have been particularly affected. Madagascar, for example, has experienced drought that has lasted over 4 years which has heavily affected the local community and their smallholder farms.
The solution is to restore vital ecosystems as soon as possible.
We are recording our sites in the open source platform restor.eco. Developed by Crowther Lab, ETH Zurich and Google in a combined effort to make reforestation accessible to all, Restor makes our sites publicly visible to anyone!
We look at our sites through satellite images over time and analyse the land-use composition in a research-backed way.
Using allometric equations, onsite data & academic sources, we aim to precisely calculate how much carbon will be stored in our forests during their lifetime.
With Treeapp, you can track your carbon footprint as well as how many trees you need to plant to be carbon neutral.
Planting trees isn’t an easy thing. And growing tree nurseries requires care & knowledge.
That’s why we gathered a board of experts in forestry to support our ongoing planting activities.

Subira is an expert in agroforestry, working on projects across Congo. His understanding of the community benefits attained through planting fruit and nut trees is applied to Treeapp’s sites.
He has also focused on livelihood surveys including household coping strategies in rural areas and how reforestation can help yield better results.
Peru, located on the west coast of South America, has lost over 2 million hectares of forest since the early 2000s.
60% of the country is covered by the Amazon rainforest which continues to be exploited by large-scale logging operations.
It is essential to regenerate these degraded woodlands in order to assist the recovery of the ecosystem. Treeapp planting activities in the north-east of the country empower farmers to take care of both forests and farms in a sustainable manner.Check out our site!
Haiti is the third largest country of the Caribbean islands and remains one of the most degraded countries on earth.
With 98% of Haiti’s forests already gone, the UN estimates that 30% of the nation’s remaining trees are being destroyed each year.
These forests, however, provide a major food source for the local population. In order to save flora and fauna, large-scale reforestation efforts including the planting of orange, lemon and coconut trees are carried out in the north and south of Haiti.Check out our site!
Brazil, South America’s largest country, is home to the Amazonian rainforest which hosts unparalleled biodiversity.
However, continued logging operations as well as the frequent wildfires during the last decade have damaged the fragile ecosystem.
Sustainable planting efforts of large-scale woodlands and shrubbery remain a key objective for Treeapp in order to restore key water springs and basins. Local communities as well as wildlife rely on these forests for their water supply and livelihood creation.Check out our site!
Guinea, bordering the Atlantic Ocean in East Africa, is experiencing growing population pressure and swelling suburbs.
As a result, unsustainable logging operations have made the Upper Guinean forest one of the most threatened forest systems in the world.
Mangrove swamps along coastlines are equally endangered as locals cut down trees for firewood and construction purposes. Treeapp repopulates these mangrove forests and provides a means of subsistence farming for locals.Check out our site!
Ethiopia, Africa’s oldest independent country, hosts two biodiversity hotspots, the Horn of Africa and the Eastern Afromontane, providing a major food source for the local populations.
Excessive logging operations for cooking fuel and construction purposes have, however, made way for crop and grazing lands.
Treeapp’s main objective of planting trees in Shebedino is to restore the original forest cover in order for the local population to continue their agroforestry, farming and beekeeping activities.
The income from tree-planting changes the lifestyle of our planters. Women in Ethiopia, for example, use the money to pay for school, extending the years these women stay in education.
Tanzania is a country in Eastern Africa known for its two biodiversity hotspots, the Coastal Forests and the Eastern Afromontane.
As woodlands still provide the main source of the country’s energy consumption, the forest cover continues to recede by approximately 1% every year, which is twice the global average.
Our projects in Tanzania promote sustainable reforestation in order to restore fragmented habitats. Tree species planted here include the Jacaranda, the African Tulip and the Fig tree.Check out our site!
Burundi is a landlocked country located on the equatorial highlands of east-central Africa.
One of the poorest countries in the world, almost half of its forest have been cut down in order to sustain the Burundian population.
Restoring woodlands is crucial in order to protect communities from further land degradation. The planting projects in the east and west of the country enable locals to cultivate food crops and regrow vital woodlands including degraded bamboo and pine tree forests.
Mozambique, bordering the western Indian Ocean, has experienced large-scale deforestation in recent decades as a result of urban expansion.
Over 500 hectares of forest is cut down every day, destroying ecosystems and displacing local wildlife.
Particularly the loss of mangrove trees has made communities vulnerable to environmental disasters. For this reason, our planting projects in the south of Mozambique rehabilitate the coastal area, combating soil erosion and simultaneously improving the health of coral reefs.Check out our site!
Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island, famous for its colossal baobab trees and colourful wildlife.
Yet, over 80% of forests have been cut down to gain land for agricultural purposes and timber exports. The restoration of forests is urgent in order for displaced aquatic and terrestrial species to be able to return to their habitat.
For Treeapp’s largest project to date, over 20 species of dry deciduous trees have been planted on the mainland, whilst mangrove swamps are regenerated along the shoreline.Check out our first and second sites!
Kenya in the East of Africa is home to varied climates across the savannah, its mountainous region and the lush forests of the Great Rift Valley.
Large-scale deforestation has made the varying microclimates more severe, acutely affecting agricultural output.
Depriving the economy of roughly $80 million every year, reforestation efforts create sustainable employment opportunities and protect communities. Tree species planted in the Kijabe region include Olive and Cape chestnut trees.Check out our site!
Nepal is home to eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains, including Mount Everest, the highest point on earth.
Its subalpine forested hills are thinning as overharvesting of fuelwood and forest fires have left many areas stripped bare, leaving local towns vulnerable to landslides and flooding.
Our reforestation projects in the mountainous region of Nawalparasi plant Catechu and Myrobalan trees in order to mitigate the effects of natural disasters by absorbing large amounts of water during flash floods and heavy rainfall.Check out our site!
Indonesia consists of more than seventeen thousand islands, ranking the country the 4th most populous in the world.
Traditional fishermen rely on wetlands all around the islands in which mangroves, coral reefs and seagrass flourish.
And yet, Indonesia has lost over 40% of its mangrove forests. Treeapp is working towards rehabilitating aquatic ecosystems and protecting villages from flooding on the Biak island by planting mangroves along shorelines. Check out our site!
This project will plant 25,000 mixed native trees over approximately 10 hectares of land.
16 species (forestry & agroforestry species) will regenerate the ecosystem and provide food and shelter for a vast spectrum of birds, insects, and other wildlife.
The newly planted saplings will border existing forests, allowing for planting sites to assemble into existing woodlands. The forest will be monitored for its growth, its survival rate and its biodiversity effect on the local area.
