Why are you a social enterprise and not an association?
Our mission is to finance reforestation projects around the world, mainly thanks to business funds. We wanted to speak a common language with them and offer them services tailored to their needs that allow them to support their reforestation project with their employees and customers. It is because only a company can develop that range of services that we have chosen to be a social rather than a business combination.
Are the trees planted on your site really planted on the ground ?
Yes ! Whether you are a company or an individual, each tree you plant on our site is actually planted in the field. Once the trees are funded online, they are automatically stored in our counters. They will be planted in the coming months in the country you have chosen. You can also follow planting through our news blog.
What will happen if my friends or colleagues do not plant the trees I offered them online ?
All trees offered by an individual or a company network are planted on the ground. In other words, regardless of the number of people who actually plant the trees they were offered on www.reforestaction.com , 100% are planted in the chosen country.
What is the cost breakdown by funded tree?
Here is the breakdown of costs by funded tree, weighted for all of our projects:
- project funding : 70%
- plantation monitoring over 5 years : 25% (5% per year)
- administrative management : 5%
Is the financing of trees eligible for tax deduction?
Reforest'Action is not an association, so the amounts paid for the planting of trees can not be deducted from taxes.
How are the trees monitored?
Internationally, before planting, species selection, soil analysis and preparation are carried out and supervised by teams of our local partners (NGOs and social enterprises) composed of agronomists and village relay. Once the trees are planted, the very same people monitor their development every year. If the trees decay during their first year, they are replaced by new ones.
Can I participate in planting in the field?
Reforest'Action offers a unique model of participatory reforestation. Each of you can plant trees on our site, offer some to friends or colleagues and so act in a participative and practical way for the forest. As for tree plantation operations organized in France, they are funded by companies that want to act with their employees. To date we do not offer special plantation operations for private individuals. However if there are vacant seats on an operation financed by a company, we appeal to individuals on social networks. Feel free to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay informed.
