Celebrating the Difference You Make

Community, Investment

The World Tree Carbon Offset Program is only possible because of some very special people: Our farmers who plant and grow the trees, our investors who fund the program and our champions who share their love of World Tree. As we complete 2017 we want to say a heart-felt THANK YOU to all of you for your love, commitment and support.

This slideshow presents some of the highlights of 2017. We had to compress it for quality – but even so we hope you will enjoy seeing pictures of the farmers and their trees – as well as pictures of our adventures meeting great people like Joel Solomon and MP Elizabeth May. We recommend you turn the volume up!

Happy Holidays to all our friends, farmers and supporters. Wishing you all a joyful holiday and a prosperous new year.
