Planting Trees for your Business with OxTreeGen

What makes us different from the rest?

OxTreeGen plant, manage and protect all the trees in our projects. This allows us to have full control over all projects and for the trees to have the best rate of survival to benefit us for generations to come. All our sites are carefully selected and are not suitable for arable or livestock production, thus maintaining the area of land available to provide food for us in the future. Our tree planting sites often add other benefits to the local environment, such as the reduction in soil erosion, replacing fallen or damaged trees and enhancing the local natural bio-diversity.


OxTreeGen intend to apply for all our projects to be covered under the Woodland Carbon Code. Projects that we know will not qualify will still be planted using the guidlines they provide.
