Reforestation of 1 million trees on 2,500 acres
LogoForest stands for large format reforestation. We assume a typical size of 1 million trees on 2,500 acres for each individual project. Larger LogoForests are fine, projects smaller than 1,500 acres need a solid evaluation in terms of logo visibility and the customer's cost-benefit analysis.
Afforestation and reforestation only
LogoForests apply to devastated forests or afforestation only. It goes without saying that a LogoForest may not be realized on forested areas.
20% surface area for logo
The logo that is spared in the course of the afforestation project accounts for a maximum of 20% of the surface area, typically an area of 500 acres. It is measured in the course of afforestation by means of GPS measurement. The area which is spared for the customer logo, is designated for agricultural purposes of the local population, thus creating also an impressive social benefit with each LogoForest project.
Project term: 20 years
A LogoForest project has a project term of 20 years, during which LogoForest secures the existence and visibility of the customer logo. The logo becomes visible in the course of reforestation, in other words already in the first project year.
All CO2 savings, which come into existence during the 20 years project term, are due to the customer, who receives carbon credits type Gold Standard VER. The amount of carbon credits varies depending on region and used tree species. We aim at providing the customer with a full counter-value for his investment in the form of carbon credits.
Patent protection in Germany and the US
The LogoForest patents have been granted in Germany and the US. Practically, there is a global protection for LogoForest due to the fact that forests that have been reforested according to the patent protection, but are lacking the LogoForest licence, may not be advertised in Germany or the US.
LogoForest has a strict selection process for potential customers, thus securing that our customers are not abusing LogoForest for green-washing purposes.
