There are many. First, we offer additionality. This means that without your contribution, your tree would not be planted.
Second, TreeTime is a non-profit based on transparency. You will be able to view the status of your tree through the app, and follow its journey from a small seed all the way through to a large tree! Once your tree is strong enough to be planted, TreeTime uses patented drone software to deliver photos of the exact tree via the unique BarkCode TM associated with that tree on your app.
Third, using economies of scale we can plant your tree and maintain it for 50 years or more without any additional contributions from you for only NZD$9. Because TreeTime takes no profit margin, the future planting price may change subject to fluctuations in underlying costs.
Fourth, New Zealand enjoys mild climate conditions, with severe weather events being a rarity. The temperature seldom rises above 30 degrees celsius/86 farenheit, and forest fires are extremely uncommon. Trees planted via the TreeTime app will have the best chance of survival as anywhere else in the world.<
Finally, our trees have been chosen in consultation with ecologists and foresters, and are professionally grown and maintained. You have the assurance that your contribution is assisting in both rapid carbon capture and promoting biodiversity.
