- What is the benefit of planting a tree?
When planting a tree you are contributing to the formation of forests, which absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and generate oxygen in return. This is a concrete action for the benefit of all who live on the planet.
Each new tree contributes to the extension of the "green lung", which increases biodiversity and counters the greenhouse effect.
- Why is it important for the planet to plant a tree?
Each new tree contributes to the extension of the "green lung", which generates an ecosystem which can increase biodiversity and mitigate the greenhouse effect.
- I live far from Patagonia - am I working with my environment by planting a tree?
No matter where you reside, planting a tree anywhere around the World generates the clean oxygen necessary to help mitigate the greenhouse effect.
- How much land is needed to plant a tree?
When it reaches maturity, the tree will need about 100 to 200 square metres to grow properly.
- When will the tree be planted?
In Patagonia, where "The World Forest" is located, the planting seasons are the months of autumn and spring.
- What evidence do I have that my tree was actually planted?
Through this site we will show pictures of the progress of "The World Forest". You can also contact us via the contact form and we will respond to any concerns or questions you have. Also, if you want and have the ability to do so, you may personally visit the place where your tree is planted.
- Do you remove native forests to plant my tree?
No, the native forests are among the greatest treasures for any region in the World. The tree you purchase will be planted in areas free of forest.
- How long does it take for my tree to grow?
It's a long process, we must understand and be aware that it may be beyond our biological life period. Trees can live for hundreds or even thousands of years in some cases. The species of trees which we plant, will clearly show its development after a period of five and ten years, but this is far from the time it will reach maturity.
- May I give a tree to someone else?
Yes, to give tree is also to give life You only need tell us the name of the person for whom the tree has been purchased.
