How do you calculate the impact of the trees?

A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of atmospheric Carbon Dioxide per year. This is a weighted average because trees have low CO2 absorbing capacity in their early years, peaking as they gain maturity and then slowing down as they grow older. O2 created is 4 times CO2 sequestration number and we plant 1000 trees per hectare as a general reforestation best practice (based on information compiled by Trees for the Future & ThoughtCo). 

With regard to Hours created, it takes 68 hours for 1 person to create 10000 tree seedlings. Then approximately 1 hour per day to maintain every 1000 seedlings. For tree kits, it takes our Tree expert 8 hours to prepare 1000 kits with locally sourced seeds.

Growing this forest also has a branching impact on the environment. For every 10,000 trees planted at least double that will germinate naturally within 5 years providing for generations to come.
