About us

Founded in 2020, we strive to not only reforest degraded lands but to make them bounce back by planting biodiverse, native trees in combination with commercial species. We believe that by restoring degraded lands and empowering ecosystems, we can do our part in fighting climate change and helping companies finance impactful climate action.
