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 and year-round rainfall, with severe weather events being a rarity. The temperature seldom rises above 30 degrees Celsius/86 Fahrenheit and is on average well below that, so forest fires are uncommon. We believe trees planted via the TreeTime app will have a survival rate as good as anywhere else in the world and better than most places.
