EcoTree is specialised in sustainable forestry management. We make it possible for everybody to become tree owners. But how is it possible to have thousands of different owners on the same piece of land?
EcoTree’s structure is based on the French surface property law, created back in 1855. This law enabled French wine producers to sell the vines (the plants), while maintaining ownership of their land.
Vive la France!
This legal distinction of ownership is beautiful when put in the context of forestry because it enables everybody to take part in the tree planting adventure for an entry price as low as 15€. When you purchase a tree, the landowner retains the ownership of the ground, while you become the owner of the tree planted in the ground.
“Every customer is both the owner of a tree and has a share of the surface right. As such, each customer benefits from a share of the proceeds from the logging of mature trees in that given forest. So while you own a particular tree in the forest, your financial return is diversified over the whole forest.”
Erwan Le Méné - President
EcoTree democratises and digitalises forestry. We provide access for everyone to become forest owners through our platform. Our forestry group (or a third party landowner) owns the land, on which the trees are made available for you to buy on our platform.
