We have also partnered up Agroforestation organisations around the world to help us plant trees. Agroforestry is a land-use management system in which trees are grown around or among crops or pastureland. This diversification of the farming system initiates an agroecological succession, like that in natural ecosystems, and so starts a chain of events that enhance the functionality and sustainability of the farming system. The trees planted not only help remove carbon from the atmosphere, but also provides incremental income for the farmer. Each tree we plant at an average removes 22 Kg of carbon per year and approximately 1 ton of carbon throughout its lifetime. Our aim is to plant 1 tree for every 250 Litenotes that are created.
We have two views for the tree map. One is a free user view where the user can see all trees planted globally and net carbon removal globally. Second view is a Pro user view, where a user can also view the number of trees planted by them.
On the map we display information regarding the beneficiary, type of trees and number of trees. We also show a picture of the beneficiary (if available) and pictures of the saplings.
