WHO WE ARE

As a mother of three young girls living in California, regular news about catastrophic wildfire and negative effects of climate change became part of my daily dialogue. I worried about our planet’s future and my daughters’ futures.

After many hours of soul searching, I decided I had to be part of the solution. I left my job running the Innovation Team of a Fortune 500 company and started CarbonForest.

My passion is empowering Americans to eliminate their carbon footprint in a way that is simple and transparent. No longer do we need to feel powerless against climate change and the future of our planet.

Caitlin Sachdev, President of CarbonForest

FAQ

No problem! We know the average American creates about 34,000 lbs of carbon dioxide per year and lives to be about 80 years old. The best carbon consuming trees, at maturity, take carbon dioxide out of the air at a rate of 50 lbs of carbon per year. These trees live to be 150 – 500 years old. 34,000 lbs of carbon emission ÷ 50 lbs of carbon extraction = 683 trees to offset your carbon footprint. Let’s say you decided to offset your carbon footprint with CarbonForest at age 30. You select the $16/month product where you make payments for 10 years. We start planning your 683 trees at a rate of about 70+ trees / per year. At age 40, you will make your last payment to CarbonForest and all 683 of your trees will be planted. At age 50, all of the 683 trees will be at maturity and consuming 34,000 lbs of carbon / year. At age 80, you pass. At this time the 683 trees will have offset 30 years of your carbon footprint and still have hundreds of more years of life. Meaning you have left a legacy of cleaning our planet’s atmosphere that will last for decades!

We’ll notify you when your carbon offset tree planting project has started,  and send you engaging updates on the progress of the project.

Usually, the bigger the tree the better the carbon extraction. The trees that are usually planted are: ponderosa pine, douglas fir, western larch, white fir, and red fir. You can learn more about these trees here.
We are currently buildling a carbon footprint calculator with personalized pricing. Once built, we will work with you to reassess the correct number of trees needed to offset your carbon footprint at a price that is fair and transparent.
If you want to cancel, no problem. There is no cancellation fee. Our status updates will show you how many of your 683 trees have been planted to date. The trees that were planted will continue to be nurtured and we will stop planting any remaining trees.

We currently don’t have the ability to plant the trees where our customers choose, but will have that features soon. In the meantime, CarbonForest works with our tree planting partners to have trees planted in the United States where there is the greatest need.

No we are not a charity. Our goal is to create awareness that planting trees is a critical part of solving climate change, and to provide a simple, low cost and transparent solution. Your payments will go towards the planting of and caring for trees (first and foremost!), user experience, status updates and marketing.

Absolutely. We agree, it is a terrific gift for someone and likely one they’ll never forget.
