Earn carbon credits

The trees you plant generate high quality carbon credits that you can sell or offset.


What type of carbon credits do I earn?


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.

What happens to my carbon credits if trees die?


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.

Can I sell or offset a fraction of a carbon credit when I have earned it?


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.

Do I earn carbon credits before the trees are planted?


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.

When do you plant my trees?


This depends on the time of year you start your subscription 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.

What can I do with my carbon credits once I have earned them?


- Sell them on our marketplace
- Offset them via our marketplace
- Withdraw them to your NZ ETR account and sell them on another market
