17 Trees

It is estimated that 30% of the worlds carbon output can be (sequested) captured through the planting of trees, kelp and grasses.

The worlds annual carbon output is estimated at 30 Billion tonnes. 30 Billion tonnes x 30% = 9 Billion tonnes. 9 Billion tonnes of carbon divided by 7.8 Billion people is 1.2 tonnes per person and at approx 15 trees to capture 1 tonne of carbon per year, it requires 17 trees to equal 1.2 tonnes.

If each person on the planet planted 17 trees a year we could capture 30% of the worlds annual carbon output.

Trees grow by capturing carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis via their leaves. Almost 100% of a tree is carbon, branches, trunk and root structure all made up of carbon that is then passed into the soil through root growth. This passing carbon from the atmosphere to the soil is imperative to help lower the earths temperature and begin the repair of the land.

Customers

Ecoforce is initially working with farmers across Australia to plant trees on properties devastated by drought and bushfires. Australian farmers own 60% of Australia’s landmass so as you can imagine when 99% of NSW and 60% of QLD was recently affected by drought there are significant numbers of farmers interested in trees.

Your purchase will be allocated to the next landowner/farmer planting site we’re working on. You’ll receive advice from us within 48 hours of your purchase of the planting site by email and sms. Once the tree has been planted we’ll then send you a link with the exact GPS co ordinates of the tree and a photo of the tree in the ground.

Yes we guarantee to replace any tree that dies within 2 years of being planted with a new seedling.

In consultation with the landowner / farmer we can do our best to organise a visit. EcoForce provides no assistance to visit the tree or can guarantee the farmers availability due to their production processes but with enough notice, plans should be able to be made.

EcoForce sells Environmental Care Packages including a tree for $7AUD + GST per month for one year or $77AUD + GST in a one off purchase. The funds are then used to cover the cost of the tree planting, tree guard to stop animals including kangaroos, wild pigs and others destroying the tree, and the care and maintenance of the tree for 2 years. We do NOT just dig holes, plant trees and walk away. Our method is fully transparent and we guarantee the tree.

After the 2 years the tree becomes the property of the landowner / farmer. Depending upon the type of tree, the first 15 years of a tree are its greatest carbon capturing potential. We expect that the long term benefit for farmers to retain the trees to help retain top soil, carbon, provide shade for animals and help seed clouds for rain will see many trees living a full life.

Your webcode link will be sent within 24 hours to your purchasing email address and your sticker posted not long thereafter.

Yes it is possible once the trees have been allocated to a planting site for you to be involved with the planting. Our team will be in contact with you prior to the planting. Your trees unless you purchased over 500 in one time will be collated with other trees purchased to create a mass planting.

EcoForce chooses the trees that best suit the environment in which they are to be planted in consultation with biologists and ecologists and nature specialists. This means we capture the greatest amount of carbon and have the greatest rate of success.

General

One tree costs $7.70 if you divide that by 30 days you get the 25.6 cents. In one year we could plant 7.8 billion trees.

Landholders

It is important to plant to most suitable trees for the planting sites. Many of our planting sites will be on private land so the selection of trees will be done in consultation with the landowner and the local landcare specialists and tree planting organisations. The tree types will also be chosen to maximise carbon capture and soil health growth.

In Australia 60% of all land is held by farmers. If EcoForce can plant trees on these properties and help sequester ( capture) carbon and in turn help rebuild soil health and mineral content then why not support farmers?

EcoForce will work with landowners in most countries of the world to plant trees. Australia, New Zealand, United States and the United Kingdom will be the first countries where we will consider tree plantings.

No, EcoForce will work with any farmer who wishes to move to a regenerative agriculture basis. We will help fund appropriate training courses to begin your regen ag understanding.

The trees become the property of the landholder after the 2 year contract period and therefore, any additional income earned belongs to the landholder.

We are partnering with landholders on the basis of first come, first served.

It is important to plant the most suitable trees for the planting sites. Many of our planting sites will be on private land so the selection of trees will be done in consultation with the landowner and the local Landcare specialists, tree planting organisations and Natural Resources Management (NRM) organisations. The tree types will also be chosen to maximise carbon capture and soil health growth.

Ecoforce will supply new seedlings to replace those seedlings or trees destroyed by fire or flood.
Replanting the replacement tree will be the responsibility of the landowner.

It is the responsibility of the land owner to ensure the trees are watered.

Ecoforce will plant new physical Tree only.

Landholders will be required to scan a QR code that is assigned to each tree, and photograph each tree at four 6 Monthly intervals over the 2 year period. This process unlocks funding at each of the four intervals of the QR code scanning & photographic process. Ecoforce will also have field staff to complete spot checks in the plantations and be available to support and provide advice.

Yes, both can be a consideration as part of the program.

Opportunity

The world needs to change, we all know it. But how much? In order to reverse the effects of climate change we need to sequester the 30bn tons of carbon. Trees are the easiest way we can do this as the effects are multi layered. We need to plant the equivalent of 135bn trees per year, or if you prefer 17 trees per person on the planet, this and every year. And to know more about 17 trees watch this video.

Whilst we acknowledge there are many organisations that plant trees, we don’t just plant trees. There is not one tree planting organisation worldwide who have the “benefit multiplier effect” like EcoForce does built into the tree planting program. Our Founders, Charles and Tracy Alder saw first hand through their years supporting farmers the opportunity to work with farmers to improve their land and the produce they supply to us. When EcoForce plants trees our farmers are obligated to improve their farming and land management practices whereby the carbon the trees capture is multiplied by the rate of carbon the soils capture. It’s a truly win win win deal for all of us. Planting billions of trees on farmers land is a world first.
When we plant trees they are gps registered, you can even visit them with prior approval and we protect them with tree guards to keep away unwanted visitors and we photograph them twice yearly and care for them directly for two years. We also engage our farmers in changing their business to include the benefits of Regenerative Agriculture.

As the tree grows it captures Carbon, but it also transforms the soil, which in turn captures even more carbon. It also helps retain water and promote rainfall to help prevent drought. It’s not just a tree, it’s a life changing transformation product.

 

Trees don’t just change the soil they also have the chance to change your life. Ecoforce is an exciting business opportunity for you with a product that is easy to understand, that is in high demand and you can be part of the solution to changing the world. How many other opportunities can say that!
If like us you are passionate about the planet and want to alter the direction the human race is on then you will know that we can no longer leave this up to Governments. For climate change to truly capture the hearts and minds of people it has to be a commercial venture. We need a self funding solution to truly effect change.
Ecoforce is recruiting Advocates to communicate this message and give people the opportunity to purchase trees in order to sequester enough carbon to meet our targets.

When Ecoforce sells a tree and pays $11 AUD in personal sales bonus and we need to sell and plant billions of trees you can do the sums and see what potential there is.

And we need to plant billions of trees year after year.

We have all heard of stories of the one that got away. The guy that didn’t invest in a computer company because it was named after a fruit, or the person who thought people would never buy books online.
