Why EcoTree?

Climate action through forestry

We support and develop a close-to-nature approach to forestry thanks by favouring irregular high forests that encourage biodiversity to flourish.

Short circuit approach

Our supply and distribution chain is local to each forest and its community, as we work with expert partners at each stage of sustainable forestry management.

Social forestry projects

There is always a social aspect to our forestry, as we make sure we work with inclusive and solidarity-based companies.

Certified for quality

We are a certified B Corporation, our carbon sequestration methodology is certified by Bureau Veritas and all our forests are PEFC certified or in the process.

Our story: how a Danish recycling scheme inspired our ground-breaking forestry model

Our story: how a Danish recycling scheme inspired our ground-breaking forestry model

In 2014, EcoTree’s four co-founders took a trip to Denmark, where 90% of all bottles and cans are returned through a unique system where people get paid to recycle. This simple idea – rewarding those who do good for the environment rather than punishing those who do not – led to EcoTree’s 2016 launch in France. After a successful start, we opened our international office in Copenhagen in 2019. We create opportunities for as many people as possible to take climate action through sustainable forestry. Our co-founders developed a system that combines ecology and economy. It’s trees as an investment that benefits both the tree owner and nature. Beyond trees, EcoTree has run more than 500 biodiversity conservation projects, including beehives, wetlands and peatlands.
