Forests forever

Forests can provide and thrive at the same time

Enjoy the beauty of the forest, with a taster of our virtual forest tour. Because we celebrate the wonder of forests with our sustainable way to preserve them.

Why we're foresters

Putting sustainable forestry in everyone's hands

There are serious threats facing the world's forests today. But we're seriously optimistic we can reduce the risks together, with our new way to think about sustainable resources.

Stopping deforestation in its tracks

80%

of the world's original forests have been destroyed.¹ We're physically putting them back. As well as growing forests, for every tree we cut in them, we plant three more.

Reducing the pressure for resources

21%

of greenhouse gas emissions comes from producing plastic, steel, & cement.² We reduce this with high-quality sustainable timber. Which looks nicer too!

Joining the fight against climate change

11%

of the global greenhouse emissions driving climate change are from deforestation.³ Our verified carbon capture calculations show the work our trees are doing to reduce that.

Protecting the forest's plants and animals

60%

of the planet's land-living animals have been wiped out since 1970. ⁴Forests are home to 80% of those left. ⁵So we're creating vital homes for biodiversity.

EcoTree manifesto

Nature has value

We want you to feel proud of the part you're playing by engaging in our sustainable forestry. So let's make some promises together!

no_clearcutting

No clearcutting, thank you very much. Selective cuts only.

biodiversity

We love biodiversity. Plants and animals are at the heart of what we do.

monoculture

Down with monoculture. Long live mixed forests!

chemicals

No chemicals. (Obviously.)

carbon

Offsetting is so 1970s. We capture carbon to reduce footprints.

timber

We produce sustainable timber. It's better for the environment than other materials.

balance

No messing with exotic species. It's bad for the forest's natural balance.

time

We give your trees the time they need to act as carbon sinks for the planet.

protection

We're contributing to the preservation and protection of Europe's forests.

forest

We get our hands dirty with wild initiatives, for the forest and local community.

foresters

Our foresters work in every forest alongside external, local forestry experts.

elderly

Respect the elderly! Our trees are mixed ages to aid natural regeneration.
