A good tree planting company (such as Fifteen Trees) will ensure:

  1. Permanency. Your trees will be well planted and protected. They are planted for the long term.
  2. Additional Planting. Your trees are planted in addition to what was going to be planted.
  3. Transparency. This will be achieved via the website where you will be able to view your trees and read some of the stories behind the groups who have planted your trees.
  4. Credibility. Those who plant your trees are connected with established community groups such as schools and universities, Landcare groups or environmental groups.
