Who owns the trees from the projects I support?

Not you, nor Tree-Nation but local small landowners.

Tree-Nation’s platform to plant trees has the main goal to protect the environment and therefore, does not grant any right of ownership, disposition, or use of the trees. The owner of the planting site is the owner of the trees.

In every project, a local structure (usually an NGO) will work with local communities to help them plant trees on their land.

We focus on “productive” species that can provide fruits, gum, resin, oil, or wood as a source of revenue to those communities. This fact is key to make sure local owners will have a natural interest in protecting the trees for a very long period of time. When you plant a tree on Tree-Nation, it’s considered a contribution (or sponsoring for companies) but not an act of ownership of the trees or their production.
