Frequently Asked Questions

What is a carbon offset?

Unless you are walking or biking, your commute probably produces greenhouse gas emissions. Luckily, trees are natural carbon sinks - in other words, they remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and use it to grow. A carbon offset lets you help plant exactly enough trees to absorb all that CO2 you are putting into the atmosphere.

How do you measure my commute emissions?

You tell us three important things: your starting point, ending point, and how you get between the two. We do the rest by automatically calculating your emissions based on the type of vehicle or transportation mode you use.

How much CO2 equals one tree?

48 pounds or 21.8 kilograms.

How do I know real trees are being planted?

We work directly with One Tree Planted, a non-profit based in Vermont. Don’t worry, we’ve worked hard to vet them and ensure their credibility, but if you’re skeptical, feel free to check them out!

Where are my trees planted? 

We have planting projects in nearly every U.S. state, Canadian province, and European country to ensure the trees are planted as close to you as possible. And bonus: One Tree Planted only plants trees that are native to your local environment!

How do I know my trees were planted?

We send you a certificate confirming the trees to be planted in your name. You will also receive a post-project report upon completion, which will include details such as the tree species planted, expected survival rates, community engagement, and ecological benefits.

When will my trees be planted?

The time between your donation and the actual tree planting will vary depending on the region you have chosen and the time of year. Planting usually happens during the rainy season, when the soil provides optimum conditions for tree survival.

Can my company help me pay for my offset?

Yes! We work with several companies who pay for some or all of their employees’ carbon offsets. If you think your company may be interested, please send them our way.
