Join us as a partner
for an important cause
in creating carbon sinks
by planting trees
Anticimex
FROM OUR PARTNER
"As we globally updated our sustainability efforts, one of the key areas being to reduce CO2 emissions, we thought it was time to do even more.”

Martin Svanljung, CEO of Anticimex Finland

Aventura
FROM OUR PARTNER
”One seedling per trip is an initiative towards more carbon-neutral travel. From January 2021, we will plant one tree in old peatlands for each trip purchased.”

Miia Vilppula, Travel Agency Aventura Oy

Upcycler
FROM OUR PARTNER
"When we bumped into the istutapuita.fi carbon sink project, it felt like an appropriate and concrete way for us to get involved in climate work."

Maj-Lis Viitanen, Upcycler Helsinki

Our
mission

Our mission is to help people and organizations make an easy and meaningful contribution to slowing down climate change

Slowing down climate change

To us it’s important to do our bit for nature. As we studied the matter further, we found that planting trees is one of the most effective ways to slow down climate change

As Christmas tree entrepreneurs, this is the most suitable and natural way for us to participate, as we are already familiar with land acquisition and the organisation of planting trees.

Inspiring as many people as possible

We are inviting everyone to join in the work against climate change: by planting trees, we can concretely help nature instead of making empty promises. 

Each buyer will receive a diploma of the planting. The visibility we gain will hopefully increase the enthusiasm for everyday climate actions. 

Our mission is to make tree planting a common phenomenon.

Fighting climate change is possible

We believe that everyone can help, even with small actions, in the fight against climate change

As a relevant example, we can reflect on our daily choices and how we could make them more ecologically. 

Planting trees is an effortless and tangible way to help, and its benefits are scientifically proven.

Carbon compensation in peatlands

Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE) has presented a calculation on how much peatlands, that are retired from peat production, absorb carbon. The report focused on the development of the stand of trees and the emission reductions that would occur as a result of afforestation of the peatlands that had retired from peat production, over 100 years.

By planting trees peatlands become a carbon sink, instead of emitting significant emissions, and the amount of offset carbon dioxide per tree is almost 600 kg.

How You can help

BUY A PLANTING
Each tree is significant. You can start by purchasing just one tree seedling or offset your own annual carbon footprint.
JOIN US AS BUSINESS PARTNER
You can make a one-time contribution or we can tailor a long-term solution for your business.
LINK US TO YOUR PRODUCT
You can add the trademark “istutapuita.fi” to your company’s products and services.
SPREAD THE WORD
Cooperation is powerful! If you agree that planting trees is a good thing, persuade others to join our afforestation effort. The more trees, the more carbon is absorbed!

What’s the impact
on climate

Increasing the number of trees is currently considered the most effective way to stop the acceleration of climate change. By growing new forests, we absorb carbon dioxide in the atmosphere into the biomass of trees, rather than let it strain the atmosphere.

Our first project is the afforestation of Karhusuo

Our first project target was Karhusuo in Kouvola, which is currently fully planted and continues to grow into a functioning carbon sink. The area is a peatland, retired from peat production, where we managed to create stellar conditions for afforestation. In the spring of 2019, we set our own input by planting 3,000 tree seedlings into the already nutritious land. Read more on the project page.

Why dried out peatland?

In old peatlands, the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere continues. With the afforestation of poorly growing forest stands and bare land, we can absorb the carbon released into the biomass of trees and ground vegetation. Reforestation of peatlands is climate action in its best form; not only does it reduce emissions from peat decomposition, but it also creates a significant carbon sink!

The Team

 

Each of us wants to participate in saving nature which is why we joined together in building carbon sinks. We like to capitalise on the knowledge and experience gained for a good purpose. Our mission is to work together with partners and clients creating a community with a common purpose, together advancing this important matter.
