Who owns the trees?
EcoMatcher works with foundations specialised in tree planting, ensuring that trees are planted. Those foundations provide farmers with high quality seedlings; farmers plant the seedlings on their land. Your donation finances the growth of the seedlings, the transportation of the seedlings to the farmers and the livelihood and education of the farmers. The farmers who take care of the trees will own the trees, and your funding will also allow them to reap the benefits that the trees may offer to their community.
