Frequently Asked Questions

What does Working Trees do?

Working Trees is the first agroforestry carbon project developer in the United States.

We develop sensor technology to measure the carbon stored in trees. We get farmers, ranchers, and landowners paid for the trees on their land. We partner with corporates to quantify the climate impact of trees in their supply chains. We catalyze ecosystem restoration, benefit rural economic livelihoods, and combat climate change at scale.

What is the Working Trees story?

Working Trees was incubated at Stanford University in early 2021 as part of Stanford Climate Ventures. Through thousands of conversations with stakeholders from across the landscape, we refined our ideas and built an early version of our technology platform.

With support from mentors, collaborators and advisors at Stanford and Virginia Tech, we have been awarded several grants to launch the first agroforestry carbon project in the US, further build out our product, and gather data from the field.

We are currently in the process of scaling our TreeOps program around the globe and our FarmOps program in the Eastern US.

Where does Working Trees operate?

Our TreeOps program operates around the globe. Current projects exist in Brazil and Tanzania.

Our FarmOps program operates in any US state east of the Great Plains. We have full coverage in Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin. We have partial coverage in Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Texas.

Who does Working Trees work with?
