An Affiliated Project allows you to plant trees directly from the Tree-Nation website. The project meets all our tree planting requirements.
An Independent project does not allow you to plant trees directly from the Tree-Nation website. You can still use the "Visit website" link to access the project holder's own website and possibly fund its tree planting activities from there. Please be careful if you would like to fund trees outside Tree-Nation as we cannot guarantee nor provide sufficient validation for the project holders to comply with the requirements to plant their trees.
Why is a project independent? The project may have only recently joined our worldwide project network and still need to complete our requirements. Or the project failed to complete our requirements, or the project does comply with our requirements yet prefers to manage its funding on its own website.
A project page is in construction when it doesn't provide the basic information required by Tree-Nation.
Only plant trees when 100% convinced. The Tree-Nation platform is designed to welcome all tree planting projects. It provides a set of tools to get a more accurate interpretation on the work performed by such projects. However, these tools have limits and accuracy of the content cannot be guaranteed. We recommend that you, as a user, fund trees with either an Affiliated or an Independent project ONLY if you gained full confidence that your trees will be well taken care of.
We have improved the security of Tree-Nation's website to keep up with the highest safety standards. For this reason we have sent you an email with a link to reset your password. Thank you for your understanding.
