Fantastic news for the forests

As always, let’s start with the forests. The last year has seen us double the number of trees we manage in France, which is where the EcoTree journey began. Despite challenging drought, fires and widespread bark beetle attacks in French woodlands, our own forests have thrived.

We acquired 10 forests across 60 hectares in four different regions of France. We also coordinated new tree plantings in Cleden Poher, Louargat, Faouët, Palotas and Ploërdut, adding over 65,000 chestnut trees, Douglas firs, thuyas, red oaks, spruces, pines, cedars, sessile oaks and more.

Growth and expansion

Our success is down to the work of our skilled forestry teams. We are now in the process of replicating the unique EcoTree model and acquiring forests in Denmark and the United Kingdom. That makes us a truly international company with a plan to democratise our ground-breaking concept of tree ownership across Europe.

As our forests have grown, so has EcoTree as a business. Our turnover has doubled again over the last year, which puts us in a strong financial position that will help us build and plan for the future. We’ve also been busy building our fantastic team – there are now 60 of us across all departments.

What comes next?

With your support, we’re aiming for just as successful a year this time around. We hope to plant or takeover and manage 500,000 more trees and are looking at 30 biodiversity projects. In fact, having developed our territorial network, we are now able to study, take over and manage massifs anywhere in France. 

We’re also making great strides outside of France and aim to be sustainably managing forests in multiple countries very soon. As always, we will keep you informed and be as transparent with you as possible. 

Speaking of which, we are making even more documentation available to every EcoTree customer through their online account. That includes the results of our ongoing research into forestry plans, which we plan to share in a series of webinars throughout the year.
