Making it easy to plant trees to offset carbon and track results
While massive reduction of carbon emissions should remain the primary focus, properly planned tree planting programs can remove significant amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere over time.
However, both companies and individuals need help with the execution of large scale tree planting.
Some of the key "jobs to be done" are to identify land that is appropriate for tree planting, to secure the rights to plant on that land (buy/lease), to execute the tree planting, manage the land, and report back on the results.
