By attaching a price and value to trees, some of nature’s finest assets, we can incentivize their perpetuation to the benefit of landowners, buyers, and all of humanity. See how we use carbon assets to serve as the foundation for forest creation.
Join the more than 500 landowners who have become a part of GreenTrees and reaped financial and ecological rewards from growing world-class forests on marginal farmland bordering our great river systems.
When you enroll with GreenTrees, we plant a world-class forest, measure the growth annually, and convert the annual growth into carbon credits that are third-party verified. Once verified, we transact carbon credits to the marketplace. GreenTrees is a model land equity program where we split the carbon sales with our landowners. Money does not grow on trees, it grows in them. The faster the forest grows, the more carbon gets sequestered, the more carbon there is to sell.
GreenTrees reforestation project is designed to help sustainability-minded corporations give back to our planet in the fight to reverse climate change.
We are at a tipping point in our global fight to end the climate crisis. Corporations all over the world can be a part of the solution by investing directly in restoring our nation’s forests. In addition to boosting their sustainability practices, reducing waste and pollution, and developing more earth-friendly processes, our carbon asset program helps companies give back in the most tangible way to restoring our environment.
Land owners can earn money for every tree planted on land that would otherwise have been empty or unused. The benefits, financial and otherwise, accumulate significantly over time. Read the stories of other landowners in the program.
The $500 million in destroyed crops resulting from this latest flood demands a reconsideration of what’s best for farmers and their land in this fragile environment. Roy McCallie was born in Stuttgart during the great Mississippi flood of 1927. His parents were forced to find a safer area when their hometown of Arkansas City was facing inundation,
After several years in the program administered by GreenTrees, I am confident that the benefits offered to me and my family through this program are truly one of those few exceptions to the old adage. - Brennan Chapman, GreenTrees Landowner We’ve all heard the saying 'if it sounds too good to
"I was never a forester and I’m no tree-hugger, but the deforestation in the Delta has hurt the soil and the farmer both." - Ricky Lowery, Delta Farmer From the tip of Illinois to New Orleans, the great river rose from its channel, slipped its shackles, and crept with relentless strength miles
We can no longer afford to value a tree only when it is cut down. To address climate change, we must think less about preventing the destruction of forests and more about promoting their restoration to reverse the effects. Through our ecosystem marketplace, we create value in the planting of trees that can then let nature take its course, extending vitality to far more organisms than meet the eye.
The impact on our environment over 15 years on over 1 million acres: 6,040,000 trees planted, 1,200,000 tons of CO2 sequestered, over 40 species of habitat restored, 654,000,000 liters of water stored.
Our foresters in the field oversee the enrollment of acres, plantings, forest growth patterns, quality control issues, and landowner relations—all with great personal care. Learn more about how to get started.
