There are always questions and so here are some of the answers. If you don’t see the answer here just ask it below.
Here are a bunch of questions about the EcoForce initiative.
Are you a customer and have a question, check these out
I’ve purchased a ECP including a tree, when will it be planted?
How often will I hear about my tree?
Every six months our landowners / farmers will report into us on the growth of the trees on their property. These updates include a photograph and the gps co ordinates of the tree as well as a calculation from us of its estimated captured carbon amount.
If the tree dies will you replace it?
Yes we guarantee to replace any tree that dies within 2 years of being planted with a new seedling.
Can I visit my supported tree?
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.
What happens to the tree after my 2 years of support?
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.
How much is it going to cost me for a tree?
EcoForce sells Environmental Care Packages including a tree for $7.70AUD + GST per month for one year or $84.70AUD + 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.
How is my tree going to help the planet?
Every tree we plant helps sequester ( capture) carbon from the atmosphere. Trees are one of the most effective plants to capture carbon and one of the cheapest methods. The more trees we plant the faster we can reduce the earths temperature and CO2 levels.
Is your organisation involved in landcare and the environment?
Our group plants trees, can we work with EcoForce?
Ecoforce will work with any tree planting group to get more trees in the ground. Though our structured plan we can pay you for this planting of trees on landowners / farmers land.
