We only work with the best
We don’t run projects ourselves, so we set the bar really high for the projects that get featured in the app.
For a start, they must be registered with an internationally recognised certification program. In Australia, this will generally mean the project is registered with the Clean Energy Regulator.
Next, they should generate real biodiversity and/or social benefits in addition to the CO2 being removed. So no monoculture plantations. Our community want to see natural landscapes restored to their native condition, reviving local ecosystems and tapping into the long history of indigenous skills and knowledge about land management.
So your trees are safe with us
Planting your trees is just the first part of the job. We do everything possible to make sure they survive and thrive:
Widgewah Conservation Sanctuary
This is our launch project and we just love talking about it. We think you’ll see why!
Remove CO2, prevent extinctions
An hour or two north of Melbourne, this property was cleared for grazing decades ago. Your trees will restore the landscape to its natural state, with a mix of 30 different native species to be planted.
Your trees will also create a new habitat for the critically-threatened Southern Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby, and a number of other unique species. A predator-proof fence has been installed, and a group of the last remaining members of this species will be introduced from the Mt Rothwell breeding program to this site to help bring them back from the brink of extinction.
Each hectare planted will remove over 220,000kg of CO2 in the first 10 years after your trees go into the ground.
Restoring a native forest landscape, removing CO2, and putting a halt to extinctions makes this a perfect example of the kind of project the Reforest community want to be part of.
