Working Trees

Working Trees

Incorporating trees into agricultural land (a practice called agroforestry) has been demonstrated to have numerous agricultural production benefits while storing significant carbon. Carbon markets have the potential to provide an economic incentive which could catalyze the transition to agroforestry. However, costly carbon measurements required for market participation have limited market access to large landowners - small and average sized farmers aren’t yet able to make use of these new markets.  Working Trees’ approach changes this paradigm. We have developed a technology platform that leverages smartphone camera and LiDAR, satellite data, and machine learning models to democratize access to carbon markets for farmers of all sizes.
