Our Tree Pledge

Permachar Ecologi Graphic

We care about our environmental impact, and in addition to our FSC and PEFC membership we also fund the planting of 1 tree for every 10m2 of timber purchased. This is more than double the amount of trees used for the timber in your order.

You don't need to do anything as we'll add your timber order on to our monthly timber tally, and then each month, we'll count up our total timber sold and fund the planting of the equating number of trees. You see the impact you've made by watching our forests grow!

We've partnered with Ecologi, a UK environmental organisation, who buy our trees for us. They buy trees all over the world and so far, Permachar have funded trees in Madagascar, Kenya, Mozambique, Uganda, Tanzania, Morocco, Bolivia, Ecuador & Peru, to name but a few!!

Trees are one of the best tools we have in removing carbon pollution from our atmosphere. All of the trees we buy will quietly absorb and lock away carbon from the atmosphere over their lifetimes.

A Bit More About Our Tree Planting Partners, 'Ecologi'

Ecologi Logo are a certified B Corporation, meaning that they meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. They have an impressive 4.9 stars on Trustpilot. Ecologi take care as to what trees are planted. They make sure to choose the best tree for long-lasting environmental impact for each particular location. They also care who plants the trees and often use local villagers using the fair wage employment scheme. They practise responsible reforestation projects and their planting sites are routinely audited by third parties to check the reported number of healthy trees growing. Eden Reforestation Projects is one of their largest tree-planting partners, which has a brilliant track record of meeting the reported numbers of trees.

Ecologi plant a lot of mangroves and not only does the initial survival rate of their mangrove restoration projects exceed 80%, but after 3 - 5 years, they produce their own mango saplings, resulting in prolific natural regeneration. Mangroves have large amounts of biomass stored underground in the extensive root system, sequester carbon at a rate two to four times greater than mature tropical forests, and contain “the highest carbon density of all terrestrial ecosystems.
