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.
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.

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!
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.
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.
