My Timeline

The important moments in your tree's life.

Seed

It all starts with a tiny seed, nice and warm in the soil.

Nursery

Your seedling is big enough to be welcomed into one of our nurseries, along with many others.

Planted

We’re here! Your tree has reached its new home: it’s been planted by a smallholder, who’ll take care of it for years to come.

Curiosity about me

The important moments in your tree's life.

Let's start with introductions

The Grevillea reaches up to 12-25 meters of height. It’s flowers are a splashy yellow and its rich nectar attracts bees, boosting the ecosystem and encouraging plant pollination. It’s used as a windbreaker plant and allows for the formation of humus, which maintains soil humidity and improves soil quality.

Meaning

Patience

Often planted along streets, this tree is capable of bearing traffic even during rush hour.

How much CO2 I’ll absorb

My estimated CO2 absorption capacity is based on the first 10 years of my life*

Current absorption

- 80 kg

2022

0 kg

2032

-800 kg

* The tree will continue to absorb CO2 even after the tenth year. Therefore this is a prudent estimate.

How I am useful to local communities

Soil

Soil

It improves the quality of the soil thanks to the nitrogen fixation process or it reduces soil erosion, thanks to its extended root system.

Anti-wind

Anti-wind

It protects young plants from the wind and reduces water evaporation from the soil.

Livestock

Livestock

Its leaves, either fresh or dried-out, are used as food for livestock.

My benefits

10%

Food Security

The trees will bear fruits, some that will be edible immediately and others that can become edible through processing, ensuring food resources over time.

10%

Economic development

The trees' fruits and the products derived from their transformation can be traded in local networks, offering income opportunities.

80%

CO₂ Absorption

During its life cycle, each tree will offset CO₂. The trees that you plant can offset your emissions.

100%

Environmental protection

The trees are planted in agroforestry systems that favor the virtuous interaction between the different species and their positive impact on the environment and on the land.
