Tree-planting services carrying the RealForestTM badge mean that:
all information provided about project was put in by professional local forester in whose direct responsibility lies the particular area’s sites.
it is based on the real data, obtained during site trailing
tree planting is executed by professional local forester at a time determined as appropriate for it
orders include forester’s expenses for: site preparation as moving dead forest, clearing, soil preparation; purchasing liners from a local nursery, paying fair labor costs for planting, post-planting care up to 5 years
it is real complete restoration of forests
RealForestTM helps global businesses efficiently allocate their resources, while at the same time, protect our environment, strengthen local economies and communities.
Why do I see standing forest?
When we started to design our service, we put an ambitious goal to literally "show" where you will plant your forest. We strongly believe that you have to restore only and only places where forest was damaged, not to sponsor someone's else packets. So why you still see forest on your screen?
Generally, there are two reasons for this:
We currently use Google maps. Depending on the date when satellite picture was captured, it may or may not reflect the real state of the territory. For example,imagery was captured in 2011, and wildfire causing death of forest occurred later in 2012.
It is dead wood on the picture , not alive forest. These are dead trees, usually suffered from bark beetle, which were not removed yet. And yet represent a high risk for future wildfires for the territory.
To make you feel the level of disaster we started to purchase newer satellite imageries for some territories and place them as layer above Google maps. Particularly, this is why on some of the sites you may see short-lived blinking from forested territory to the deforested one.
Hopefully, now there start to emerge bootstrapped and VC backed strong mapping and satellite imagery startups aiming to bring realtime satellite imagery to the consumer space. Among whom are the MapBox and SkyBox. We will deploy their space powers to bring you the joy of watching your forests growing.

Dear friends, when we started our service, we set ourselves an ambitious task - to show the place where you can plant your forest. In achieving that goal, the Treeography has at its disposal an array of tools, including promotion of public control over the forester and the territory and cooperation with responsible, professional and diligent foresters.
If you notice any violation of foresters' practice, the deterioration of the site or condition of seedlings, please inform us. Your report will be considered in high regard and all the necessary measures will be taken.

How price is calculated?
PB = [PF x [1+ (FS /100)] x [1+ (FB /100)] х [1+ (FM /100)]] + FI
Price seen by backer.
Price per liner indicated by Forester. Depending on stage of the forest restoration project this price encompasses in: cost of soil preparation, cost of liners, fair labor cost for planting and cost for 5 year-post planting care services.
2.9% fees charged by Stripe payments.
0.7% banking fees.
5% fee charged by Maraquia to be able to continue its operations.
n$ fee charged for the improvement of site's satellite imagery
PF = 2$ PB = (2$ x 1.029 x 1.007 x 1,05) + 0 = 2.18$
Our young assistants, secondary school students from the village of Urshelsky, carried out agrotechnical care: the children manually, with the help of hoes, removed weed vegetation around the seedlings, which provided greater access to light and air for young plants. Many thanks to the participants!
Наши юные помощники, ученики СОШ из
поселка Уршельский, провели агротехнический уход: ребята вручную, при помощи мотыг, удаляли сорную растительность вокруг сеянцев, что обеспечило больший доступ к свету и воздуху для молодых растений. Огромное спасибо участникам!
Dear friends! We are glad to make you happy with great news! After winter, the seedlings are noticeably elongated, the increase in some is 15-20 cm. This means that a favorable environment has been created for the seedlings, plenty of light and moisture. All this was the result of agrotechnical care.
Дорогие друзья! Спешим порадовать вас отличными новостями!
После зимы сеянцы заметно вытянулись, прирост у некоторых составляет 15-20 см. Это означает, что для сеянцев создана благоприятная среда, достаток света и влаги. Все это стало следствием проведенных агротехнических уходов.
This site is located in the North-East of the village Urshelsky, and was damaged by the terrible fires of 2010. Truly Russian boron was rich in berries, mushrooms, was a favorite resting place of local residents. At the moment, there is a clear sanitary felling at the site and the territory is prepared for planting a new forest, which will help restore its original appearance.
Данный участок находится на Северо-Востоке от п. Уршельский, и был поврежден страшными пожарами 2010 года. По-настоящему Русский бор был богат ягодами, грибами, являлся излюбленном местом отдыха местных жителей. В данный момент на участке произведена сплошная санитарная рубка и территория подготовлена к посадке нового леса, что поможет восстановить ее первоначальный вид.
