Trees sequester carbon over their lifetime. We plant one tree for every 5 tons of carbon to be sequestered. This number, calculated using the Climate Action Reserve’s Urban Forest Tree Carbon Calculator, indicates that the average Pacific Northwest conifer tree will sequester 13.9 tons of carbon by its 100th birthday.
MAKING CHANGE IN THE REGION WE LOVE
Our solution is simple—we help you calculate your annual carbon footprint and plant trees locally to mitigate your carbon impact. Since 2010, we have worked with corporate and nonprofit partners, field partners and hundreds of volunteers. Together we have planted 60,292 trees in more than 149 locations. These trees will sequester greater than 301,460 tons of carbon dioxide (C02) over their lifetimes.

2022 EVERGREEN CARBON CAPTURE BY THE NUMBERS
In 2022, we supported local forest restoration by planting 3,478 native evergreen trees to offset carbon emissions. With 24 corporate and nonprofit partners, 6 field partners and dozens of individuals, over 17k tons of carbon were sequestered.
