The future of forestry according to EcoTree (that’s us!)
The future of forestry according to EcoTree (that’s us!)

We’d like to start with a bit of mind blowing... Forests can provide and flourish at the same time. This is at the heart of what we’re doing at EcoTree. Shifting people’s perspective from seeing forests as either something to protect (good) or cut down (bad). Because humans have a bad habit of messing everything up when it comes to taking what we need from the environment to survive. In the future we envisage, it’s not about survival. It’s about flourishing. And we’re passionate about growing evidence that it’s actually good for our planet to get everyone involved in sustainable timber production.

When it comes to sequestering carbon in the forest, all trees are efficient!

Some people wonder whether it's better to focus on old-growth trees in a forest or to cultivate young plants. Others wonder about the opportunities to invest in an existing forest or in agricultural land to be reforested. Which system absorbs the most carbon and, in turn, will do the planet the most good?
