By creating a transparent tree tracking system and collecting data on tree survival rates, we establish a link that can employ people to plant trees and so alleviate poverty in some of the world’s poorest areas.

Success is when planting organizations anywhere in the world can easily adapt this tool as a way to measure and bolster their current impact. We believe that with the data we are collecting we can create a system that can reverse poverty-driven deforestation and accurately measure short and long-term effects of widespread reforestation efforts. A single grown tree can capture almost 50 pounds of carbon a year. Each year there is a net loss of about 10 billion trees on earth. Think Big. We need net positive now.
