3.09 - Who owns the trees from your projects?
Not you, nor Tree-Nation but local small land owners.
Using the Tree-Nation platform to plant trees is understood as an action to protect the environment and therefore does not grant any right of ownership, disposition or use of the trees. The owner of the planting site is the owner of the trees.
In every project a local structure (usually a NGO) will work with local communities to help them plant trees on their land. A strong focus is usually given to “productive” species, that can provide fruits, gum, resin, oil or wood as a source of revenue to those communities. This is very important to make sure local owners will have a natural interest in protecting the trees during a very long period of time. When you plant a tree on Tree-Nation it is therefore considered a donation (or sponsoring for companies) but not an act of ownership on the trees or their production.
