All carbon credits earned from your trees will be verified native forest New Zealand Units (NZUs) that are registered in the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) under the Permanent Post 1989 (PP89) classification.
We have a buffer of carbon credits held in contingency, but ultimately, if in the worst case scenario the trees do not survive, you will not earn carbon credits as they will not exist. We have strict parameters when choosing partners to plant with based on the location, past planting success and the forest management plan/capabilities.
No, currently we can only work with whole units as the registry (NZETR) your carbon is held on does not account for fractional carbon units.
No, our trees are registered in the NZ ETS, this is one of the world’s most reputable and leading carbon programs. You only earn carbon credits from the trees once they are planted in our projects which happen during Winter/Spring each year.
This depends on the time of year and planting dates for our partner projects. To communicate this, we have different statuses for all of your trees so that you can see what stage they are in - Funded, Purchased, Planted. When they are planted, you will be able to trace them to the project and follow them through project updates.
