HOW DOES THIS OFFSET MY CARBON FOOTPRINT?

Carbon sequestration is the removal and storage of carbon from the atmosphere by trees, shrubs, and organic matter like soil. Trees for the Future (TREES) works with thousands of smallholder farmers to grow what we call Forest Gardens. As a Forest Garden matures, its ability to store carbon increases. So, it is important to calculate the growth and storage of carbon over time to accurately depict the carbon sequestration rate of Trees for the Future Forest Gardens.

Trees for the Future has measured the carbon sequestration of Forest Gardens through two independent studies to measure the carbon storage potential of Forest Gardens. Read more about the calculations and how your donation equates to carbon sequestration.
