Planting trees is only the first step toward establishing new areas of native forest. Robust monitoring of survival and growth over time will enable us to determine how successful planting has been and discover what has contributed to its growth or decline. This will increase the accuracy of both our overall tree count and our measures of potential CO2 sequestration.
To achieve these benefits, Trees That Count recommends any individual or group undertaking restoration planting projects to inspect their planting site regularly and provide us with feedback on the performance of their trees.
