"But Edward, how does it all work?" you ask....

Well, let me tell you: We partner with  the wonderful highly professional Canada reforestation company called, who plant the trees on sites they are the stewards of in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. 

Every three months I tally up how many drum lessons were given, and then double it (one tree for you, one for our family) and we send a donation to cover the costs of planting them. Simple! but wonderfully effective at fighting climate change right here on Canadian soil.

The math behind it all.

Calculating the exact impact of tree planting is not at all an exact science!, and you can get all sorts of weird metrics depending on who you talk to, so to be on the safe side I’ve chosen to use formulas  / data from only very conservative sources, mainly Tree Canada and Carbon Fund. and planting info.

Our progress figures are based on planting approx. 1,000 saplings per acre. 

Each tree to produce approx. 180 kg of Carbon Capture over its lifespan. tree planters

And if you would like to do a little more for the environment please consider using the ECOSIA search engine.

They generate funds to plant trees from your searches. It's a wonderful innovation that has lead to over 165 MILLION trees being planted so far!!


I've used it for a few years now and its just great!
