THE BEST WAY TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE IS TO PLANT TREES
Trees mitigate climate change by using the carbon from atmospheric CO2 to grow their roots, stems, and branches. Along with reducing greenhouse gas emissions, planting trees is the best strategy to counter the effects of climate change.
NOT ALL TREES ARE EQUAL
Trees vary in size, hardness, and durability―all factors that affect how good a tree is at fighting climate change.
LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER
AVES identifies the best tree for you and its ideal location on your property:
We use statistical models to determine a tree's carbon sequestration potential
We examine the environmental variables necessary for ideal growth of each species (soil characteristics, humidity, etc.)
We exclude problematic trees (aggressive/invasive species, species susceptible to insects and diseases, etc.)
We assess other ecological benefits provided by the tree (use by pollinators & wildlife, shade, etc.)
We consider the shape and ornamental value of the tree in relation to the property
On your end, all you have to do is water the tree so we can decentralize irrigation to maximize carbon efficiency. It's not complicated, and it'sa crucial step!
GO BEYOND AESTHETICS ― MAKE YOUR HOME TRULY ECOLOGICAL
By planting the most ecological tree on your property, you won't only have a beautiful home―you'll also cultivate hope in the face of our current environmental challenges!
